  1. Re: "Old Lady" Perfume (not what you might think.)

    Brava!

    Yes, I must say, as a 30 year old woman, the infantilization is not just in scent! I have a terrible time finding clothing that feels age appropriate. I don't want to look like a high...

    Re: June 2009 ~ Purchases

    Just ordered samples of CdG Kyoto, 10 Corso Como, and Profumum Acqua di Sale, since I was already ordering soap. I restocked my Catherine Memme soap (Amande) and tried to get a few man-friendly soap...

    Re: What are your most feared scrubbers?

    This makes me quite sad: I can't wear a lot of ladylike scents as I react very, very badly to white flowers. Jasmine can be ok in small doses, but gardenia, narcissus, lily, tuberose, etc make me...
