  1. Re: Since a year ago, how many full bottle fragrances did you buy?

    OK , My misunderstanding.
    I'll go back to my 23rd bottle of vodka.
  2. Re: Since a year ago, how many full bottle fragrances did you buy?

    WTF it has to do with my response is that he mentions that he is 23 in his post.

    My response points out that he is a bullshitter and as such what he posts here should be seen in that light.
  3. Re: Since a year ago, how many full bottle fragrances did you buy?
