    Great question! Maybe animal feed. Most nutrients should still be present.
  2. Re: Do you wear any 'weird' scents regularly? Got any favorites?

    L'Artisan Parfumeur L'Eau de Jatamansi is my weirdo, because it contains Himalayan nard (true spikenard). Smells like patchouli but different. It's an odd but very enjoyable note.
