    Has anyone found an online source for Les Plus Belles Lavandes by Caron? Would appreciate help in finding a source.

  2. I Smell. . . Scents of Another Sex

    I am a hypocrite when it comes to scents. I recently stereotyped men who wear "Pink Sugar" by Aquolina. But I myself decided to wear a "male" scent a few months ago -- "Spirit" by Antonio Banderas (actually by Puig, as I later learned). It reminds me of someone I knew, and liked, and I rather wanted his presence with me as I was doing something rather difficult.

  5. Me: A Belated Introduction

    Hmm... Somehow I managed to write 33 posts to this blog and never bothered to introduce myself. Maybe that's not such a bad thing; after all, the way you really get to know people is by spending time with them. So if you've spent time with my blog and feel you know me well enough for good or ill, I guess you don't have to read any further.
