Perfume reviewing is a tough job because it takes so much knowledge, skills, and hard work to sample the product, research it, and stay relevant about new things. One needs to have a great sense of smell, identify scents with precision, and stay up to date with major perfume companies. It is very important to touch upon “perfumery” while we are talking about Perfume reviewers. Perfumery has its history and is both an art and science. Perfumery is not just about flowers and scents. As we mentioned, it is a science, and one needs to embrace that. On this note, let’s look at the Top 10 Perfume Reviewers of All Time!
