    This was a very slight misdirection on my part, but yes, your follow-up is getting very warm, dear musse. (Or do you already know? ) With the answer from jimmers07, my first clue becomes much more telling.

    Adding my thanks - I am so impressed by this contest and everyone's responses! :-D

    (I thought that last bottle was a Guerlain - gotta love random image recall from reading too many perfume blogs. O:-) )
    And it's wonderful!

    Finally! Closure..the not knowing was getting to me I have to admit.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    After four more collages (and some re-polishing), a Photobucket calendar will be entirely possible.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    Squeeee! Thank you, tang, you wonderful creature you! And that with only two measly correct answers.
    Congratulations to jillsy and the other winners!
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    HOORAY AND BRAVO TO ALL!

    Jillsy, I think if you check with any of your stateside BN family, we'll be more than happy to ship you BeautyHabit goodies if that's how you decide to go...
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    "It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry
