    No way bro. I've done 10 sprays of Cool Water, no problem. Even 1 spray on the neck of L'Eau d'Issey can give me a headache.

    First time I wore this I felt sick and vomited -- no joke. Even wearing it now gives me a headache. Soon as I get the chance to sell it I will! Clever me went ahead and bought 125ml of it as well! >.<

    Chanel samples

    Can't find samples of Chanel fragrances A-N-Y-W-H-E-R-E online... I was particularly interested in sampling Egoiste... well, I did find one on ebay for £6, but who is going to pay £6 for a 2ml...
