    That's the perfect work fragrance if this is your work chair:

    No, that doesn't remind me of anything. Should it? Why are you all laughing?

    This seems the appropriate opportunity to share a true story about a fragrance product.

    Years ago, my neighbor worked for a grocery store, and she brought home one can of a product they were ordered to pull from the shelves post haste! The aerosol can of air freshener was plastered with all kinds of pink flowers. And there, amongst the flutter of petals appeared to be a fully erect p*nis!

    Wait ... I just googled the subject. There are pictures! Now, they say that it's part of a tulip, but I'm here to tell you, that was one happy, veiny tulip!

    I can't tell from the picture/story. Is it true or a hoax? Did it really happen to your friend , Quarry?

    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.

    If you think the bottle's bad you should see the filter on my Zanussi

    What a fab story and lucky old Haunani I say. Especially the gold plated top - that tops anything I own!

    There was a bit of a scandal in the 70's about a phallic looking deodorant to which I was very partial called Tickle - I liked the yellow one. It was sadly withdrawn though the packaging was a lot of fun and the stuff did a good job of keeping you fresh! Personally I don't think it looks much different from a lot of the brands on the shelves today, so looking back, I am not sure what the fuss was about!

    This thread is so funny.....I got a brochure from Nieman's in the mail yesterday that had a big Sabi advert in it and the first thought I had when I saw the bottle was: ribbed for her pleasure!

    Oh, you wicked thing.

    Socalwoman, I half expected to see "Trojan" written in place of the "Rajul." Oh, no, wait ... that's for the next flanker from this line, and they'll sleeve it like the Bulgari Black bottle.

    Wow! great visuals, Ladies! Some of these designers must spend an awful lot of time thinking about..er..um..well... I especially love the Italian washing machine. Your clothes must stay very clean, Kewart, since you know every intimate detail of your washer!
    I looked up the review of Sabi & it sounds like it might be fun to try. The powder sample on paper in the Neiman's ad (that's the one I first saw) smelled quite sweet, though. Maybe Haunani could fill us in?

    Well, I would call it a green floral. A very pretty one, IMO. I'm not great at reviewing, but I do pick out a green stem/green leaf in the opening, along with jasmine, rose (I think), and a touch of violet. It really is not overly sweet to my nose, and I'm sensitive to sweet. It is supposed to have a gazillion different flowers in it. I think it might be most perfect for the late spring. You might read this review:

    http://scentzilla.com/2006/05/01/hen...eau-de-parfum/

    Oh, and the bottle has many potential uses.

    I just saw this thread because I've been overwhelmed at work lately. All I've got to say is this:
    If that doesn't convince you to buy the big size, nothing will.
    Thanks to all for posting their pictures and stories. I needed a laugh!
