Olive. OLIVE. There are help groups for that.

And that smell is not particularly good for me. Sorry for your problem.

It's like an obsession with me. I even smell all the laundry soap even though I know I will get Gain...don't even get me started on candles or incense! You will fit in just fine here!

Sophis, welcome to the wacky world of weekenders.

Weasel, did you mean stratifying? Or rascally auto correct?

I'm among the "smell the product" people. If I can't get the top off to smell it, I don't buy it. Not so much on candles though. Don't want my children burning down the house. Which is an excellent song, just not a great occurrence.

Waiting for Mr. Ruby in my car. I'm going to have to go potty if I'm here much longer. Hopefully Not much more.

Speaking of good smelling products, anyone else use those Downy Unstoppables?

I travel a lot and it's so nice to smell my clothes when I open my suitcase! They smell good for weeks!

I used to then Gain started making some and of course I switched but the Unstoppables lasted longer I think.

No 'Gain' No Pain

'Obsession' Perfume.

Calvin Kline hit it out of the Park with that Fragrance. I'm convinced it has Pheromones in it. Man, it just causes involuntary, illicit thoughts in me. I started buying it in Duty Free Shops for Da Wife when flying Int'l. Made for some hot Homecomings from Biz Trips. The Real Deal - actual Perfume - for $60- back then. I've paid a helluva lot more-per-Ounce for Stimulants that were not so long lasting, or pleasurable.

'Toblerone' Chocolate from Geneve runs a close 2nd in my Book. The Train Stations in Switzerland have these massive 'Vend-A-Mat' Machines built into the Wall. You'd press Button 'C4' or 'D10', and a Robotic Arm would plop your Purchase into a Chute. Everything from Dry Soup Portions to Hand Lotion to Chocolate. Pick from a couple of hundred such essentials. Practical Folks, dem Swiss...

That is all.

I like Obsession a lot used to wear it but many people who wear it overdo it big time. I am on a Red kick at the moment.
