Well, when I was picking up some chairs from a woodworker, I talked smellies for a moment. He told me about a company named Annie Oakley, named after the famous cowgirl from Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show back in the early 20th century.
I checked their website, and they're a company based in Ligonier, Indiana (that's a northeast Indiana town near my home of Fort Wayne, BTW). They offer several collections of perfumes: there's a Florals collection, consisting of six floral perfumes; three eau de colognes (Citrus & Honey, Evening Lavender, and Verbena Blossom), and a men's fragrance named Stampede. They also offer an aromatherapy/oils line, too. The website does have a store locator, and they do offer a free sample pack of their fragrances (a $7.95 shipping charge applies).
Has anyone seen or tried this line?
Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
How come I'm never able to identify where it's coming from,
I'd make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I'd probably only sell one

Gee. Kudos for locating a most obscure perfumery in America's heartland.
The store locator shows 13 outlets near me. I guess I never had cause to visit the Horse Emporium before.
