  1. Re: How many shots would a "mini" be good for?

    I hadn't seen those Travalo things. I'm gonna go that route. Then I can take what I really want (which is my MiP EdP). Does the cap always come off on any bottle? That MiP bottle is kinda funky.
  2. How many shots would a "mini" be good for?

    I can't really travel with my Midnight in Paris EDP because of the size. I suppose I could get some sort of sample thing to spray some into, but I was also pondering getting the EdT and I saw they...

  5. Re: The fragrances that brings you back only sad memories

    I don't know if it's a sad memory, but my mom died a few months ago and she wore Shalimar from cradle to grave. We have tons of it around the house. That smell, more than any other, says "mom".

  10. Re: crisis averted: colleague's request for a fragrance-free office turned out ok

    Many "unscented" products (like the Dove men antiperspirant I just found) actually contain a masking agent. That can be just as bad as a "chemical" scent - worse because you can't ID it.
