    Default thebeck is signing off

    Gentllemen,

    I have really enjoyed sharing our love for perfume for the past six years. I've decided to retire from working, and will be on a fixed income. I won't be buying samples or bottles any more. I do have more than a lifetime supply of some seriously good scents.

    My disposable income will now be alotted to travel.

    Goodbye, and keep up the good work.

    Your intelligent and forthright contributions will be missed here, Ken. It sounds as though you have exciting plans ahead and I wish you safe and rewarding adventures. Drop in every now and again - you will be guaranteed a warm welcome.

    Best wishes.
    Though if you travel, you are bound to sniff lots of scents that you may have an urge to comment upon back here. It's darn hard to pass by interesting shops.
    Cheers,

    Ken, I won't lie by saying you will be missed in the community. Your knowledge was a great insight to me. I learned a thing or two. Enjoy your retirement and God bless. Don't be a stranger!

    Good for you. I'm sure I'll reach this point too where I'm ready for the next chapter and chasing the next great fragrance will be less of a priority.

    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
