What are your "love at first sniff" fragrances that you had to have, youbought it, and now wish you hadn't? In fact, you dislike itso muchthat you don't even want it next to your other fragrances.....ok, maybe you don't hate it that much, butyou probablywould never wear it again.

I think mine is Histoires Moulin Rouge 1889. I remember smelling the fragrance at The Scent Bar in Los Angeles from one of their glass funnel-shaped sniffer things. WOW! Iloved it. Then, I sprayeda littleon my wrist and enjoyed it all day long back at the office.

I knew Ihad to have it. I even orderedthe bottlefrom the Moulin Rouge in Paris. After a fewfull wearings, there's just somethingabout the notes that really tests my gag reflex. If I have it on when I go to bed, I wake up during the night andI usually have to go wash it off.I really don't like it anymore. Don't get me wrong. It's a high qualityfantastic scent for what it is. It's just something that I wish I had never acquired.

However, I did split the 120mlbottle with a friend. So, I'm only out around $80. He lovesit, but my wifeand kidsdislike it immensely. Maybe I'll just give him my 58ml that I have left over.

Or, perhaps sprayit in my garden to keep the insects away.lolk.gif
