Thanks, pal. I was wondering why the DESIGNATED HITTER would go to the frag counter. You know.... the American League?
Chanel currently has a No. 5, a No. 19 and a No. 22 on their website.
5 + 19 + 22 = 46.
Finding a lot of eBay listings.
Nothing in the Basenotes Directory although there is a No. 55.
Sorry about that. On re-reading, I do seem like a smart aleck.

My goodness! Why are you so defensive?[/quote]
Perhaps because I find your comments puerile, pusillanimous and offensive.
This is your thread. Defend your point of view. Stick to the topic.
The point is that Creed was not paying for the ad. You have lost that argument.
What is your rebuttal regarding bottles?
Well, I saw a newspaper ad for Creed a couple of days ago in the Los Angeles Times.
And it was not a Creed advertisement; it was a department store ad. What is your rebuttal regarding...
So it was not a Creed advert. It was a Nieman Marcus advertisement - a department store.
So Gent and fuckr are the same person... I thought so.
Not finding Creed listed as an advertiser in Los Angeles Times. What was the date of the paper? I'm thinking it was an advertisement for a department store.

Thank you for the super read, Jeff. Although I am not familiar with all of the vetivers in your competition, of the five I do own I think your critique/synopsis is dead level.
I have not tried making candles but your question made me think about adding them to the Old Cat (super-Oriental Old Spice on steroids) family of fine products. So I found this:
Eucalyptus, vetiver, pine needle, birch tar oil?
Hello Flathorn, Yutori, Czesc, S2Love:
Has anyone come across 'leather'?
Recently tried an 'incense'. Myrrh, frankincense, birch tar oil. Result: fair. Matter of adjusting the proportions.
Better than phermones? http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/02/science/02trust.html
Thank you, Grant and Paul and Basenotes team.
