    I don't.
    Rather I wish they'd pass along their stock tips on the Off Topic forum.

    this is an interesting topic. my friends and I (all of us divorced , former stay at home mothers who had to enter the work force cold, two of us in our forties, two of us in our fifties) were discussing what constitutes a "healthy" relationship to money.

    I recently took care of two families on both ends of the wealth spectrum at work. frankly, both were rude, obnoxious, demanding and wanted to be waited on hand and foot, the first, because they had money, made it clear that they believed money could buy them everything quicker faster and better than even the sickest person, they were entitled to privilege, the other because they had very little and felt entitled to help in the most unrealistic forms.

    This may sound judgmental, my point is to observe these contrasts in situations, yet similarity in attitudes and it made me wonder.

    Me, I don't make $10 million a year, (yet) but somehow I always seem to get what I need, plus a few good bottles of perfume
    I'm grateful for that.
    And I think it's nice that we can all dialogue in a rather economically "democratic" manner without letting money differences hinder our exchanges.

    For those who are curious, I was one of those who selected $10m a year...



























































































    But, then again, I was only joking...

    So, you only make about 8 or $9m a year?
    No need to be embarrassed, it is still a respectable figure.

    Your interesting observation doesn't surprise me in the least. Both ends of the spectrum seem to have more than their fair share of those with the attitude that others don't matter, that only they themselves matter. They're the type that like being rude to waiters.

    I was wondering too!

    Do guys making ten mil a year have time for basenotes?!

    I guess it would depend on your source of income.

    Just in case anyone was curious, I was the guy that clicked...well, you should be able to figure that out, considering I'm a student.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    my boyfriend suggested that those making 10ml a year perhaps have a team of writers who can do their posts on basenotes for them.

    but maybe that is mean. one should not mock the rich, nor the poor. oh dear, I feel a bit silly. I think it's because I have not chosen my sotd yet. WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!!

    now the 10ml I wrote above looks like 10mls of perfume!!! oh dear!

    feeling dizzy.....signing off to spritz........
