    Don't strain yourself trying to help the guy out. Telling the OP it's been discussed before and to search, could be used as a reply to just about every thread here.

    OP... here's a link to the thread I think he's talking about

    2. Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
    3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
