    I just don't understand it. I realized this morning that my stank is only detectable by my husband when I'm wearing women's perfumes. Perhaps others may have insight into this puzzle.

    I used to own a bottle of Chanel Allure (the EdT, not the EdP), given to me by my mother. I didn't like it. And neither did my husband. One spray, and both of us were heading for the door. I gave that bottle away recently.

  5. Gris Clair...

    My God... this is the most soothing, calming scent I have ever known, and perhaps will ever know... I haven't worn it all summer, but this evening I was in need of some tranquillity, so I sprayed it on after my shower.
