    Harrods is where I 1rst lost my mind to perfume! I was literally dizzy with excitement and the possibility of beautiful scents in the world. My favorite fragrance, was actually the incense burning at the shrine. I loved it so much. I wish I were there!

    Grant, your pictures are much better than mine, except for one Aramis soap teddy bear I snapped !
    This collection of old bottles with the accompanying scent samples was an unforgettablre experience.

    And one I have prayed for. Too bad it's a fleeting temporary installation and not a permanent installation in the V&A or something.

    For those of you going to this, another great installation in London, which is awesomely going on both down the street and at the same time, is the 'History of Fashion' installation at the V&A with the traveling contents of Grace Kelly's clothing wardrobe.
