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.

The next turning point in my hobby/passion/addiction came in 2005, which I later named The Year of Vetiver and Roses.
