Slumberhouse isn't for everyone. 1 Million isn't for everyone (and I'd need more asthma inhalers if it was). Marketing and hype may persuade some people -- or many people -- that they need the Thneed of the Year like everyone else, but that style of Thneed will fit some like a glove, and be irretrievably awkward or unflattering on others. And I'm quite
sure that in fragrance, too, we all have a bit of that experience in our past -- the Obsession in high school which in retrospect even you didn't like on yourself, the Polo that you wore because everyone else did and it was The Thing To Do.
