    Default Minty fresh aargh

    My sotd today unfortunately is Temps d'Une Fete by Parfums de Nicolai. In my quest to expand my nose

    I 'm beginning to feel like a 1930's boxer, having taken a few too many punches without the benefit of

    restorative plastic surgery. Mint seems like it could be such a good thing. I like Crest original, afterall.

    I still have Extract de Songes which although I cannot spell, I remember having a mint note. Temps d'Une

    Fete sent me to my Gain laundry powder, surely not! but it made me sneeze at the exact same freguency.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Mint can be tricky. We have a tiny bottle of McCormick mint extract in the house that Mr. Timberwolf used to soak toothpicks in -- somebody told him that chewing on those toothpicks works while trying to quit smoking. Na-ha! He is still smoking the way he was, and I was experimenting with mint flavored cookies these last two weeks: they tasted atrocious, Listerine-like, even the dog would sneeze on them.

    I cannot wear Guerlain's AA Mentafolia either due to this same reason, although I love Gres Grain de Folie minty middle during the dog days of summer. There is a mint out there for you too, Shycat, I am sure!
