Sure that would work :)
Done. Here's what I added:

Nature's Garden
Cranberry Orange
8/25/2018 update: Seems that it needs a LONG cure and then it comes out. Mine didn't start to come out to my nose till 2+ months cure. I still won't buy it again but it is coming out. I mixed it with Fireplace and slowly it is changing the scent every week as it cures.

@DeeAnna No worries, this time of year is busy. I just felt the need to acknowledge what you do and that I probably just hogged a bunch of your time. :D

@Lin19687 I'm probably good for awhile before I use new FO's, so you should be able to catch up!

Every time I update or do maintenance on the Review, there are always 1-5 people looking at it. Three at the moment beides me. It's pretty popular.

I need to take my own advice and write reviews for the FOs I've been using. :)

Thank you DeeAnna for the time and effort you put into this.
I know it takes some effort to do this as well as you do and am truly thankful you do what you do for this forum.

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions, but this year I will. My resolution - keep better notes and add to the FO review chart. I'm a FO HO so even though I've posted some reviews, I could post so many more!

I know I refer this chart often. Thank you @DeeAnna - your efforts here are very much appreciated.

Thanks so much for your effort and time! I’ll be sure to add some reviews as there a few I’ve looked for but didn’t find. The ones I found were spot on and a huge help!

It would be neat to be able to query the database for reviews of fragrances that stick or ones that don't accelerate or whatever. The older reviews were mostly free-form entries, and that kind of structure is tough to work with unfortunately.

But even so, the Review is a nice resource and is much more active than other fragrance resources I know of. For example, the Soap Scent Review Board is not very active anymore, although it is still a good resource for fragrance ideas. It's hard to get registered to access it, however.

There was another resource ... Fragrance Oil Finder, I think? ... that no longer exists. The person who administered and maintained it decided to let it die a year or two ago. That was a great loss. I thought there might be people who would take over the management, but apparently they didn't get the job done.

I love that idea! My SQL skills are sorely out of date/practice or I’d offer to assist!

I'm not sure it would help if your and my SQL skills were up to date. The issue is more about the way the information in the older reviews is structured ... or rather how it isn't structured.

Thanks DeeAnna for keeping this up! You've done an awesome job. I need to get back into reporting fragrances. I have quite a few I never reviewed.

It is possible to restructure the data, to make it more easily searcheable.

Yes, but that assumes the data is there to restructure. In older reviews (those created pre-2017 before I designed forms for submitting reviews), that's not necessarily true. I've done some restructuring already, but lots of the older reviews aren't very detailed.
