(but very stiff) Even my husband (and he's male!) says I have to ''get my hair done'' and ''use more products''!

    Interesting about the alcohol... I had no idea.
    Most of my perfumes are from Europe of course, but now I am contemplating not buying here but wait until I go back.

    Yes, our hair has to look reasonably arranged to be considered professional; also we have a diverse population, so not all of us have 'swingy' hair - I could not rock a loose messy chignon because it would just look like a fright wig, it wouldn't swoop around like that....The SA in that picture is gorgeous but the hair doesn't look natural to me it looks bleached and straightened. I think it's a different aesthetic, but not necessarily less rigid.

    I don't want to tread on any toes, but I think the jury's still out on this one. For myself, I can't imagine a huge company like Chanel countenancing any noticeable variation in their scents based on different markets (I'm not talking about reformulations here). They are so controlling of every little detail, I just can't see how they would let that happen. And would Caron or Lutens really ship concentrate to the US rather than blended juice? Not sure.
