    ELDO Divin'Enfant for today. I am sort of surprised to like this - it smells like frosting but somehow not too sweet. Has a texture to how it smells, it's warm-not-cold floral and velvety/pillowy...

    Re: A question for women

    I would say Angel, too. I really like it but it's such a loud mishmash, it brings strong opinions.

    Re: Worst perfume ads of all time?

    Oh the lady with the terrifyingly photoshopped waist floating stones in a pond. I am always squicked out by her figure. I did find the un-photoshopped image at some point but can't now.
