    Thanks. Since I don't have SmelloWeb yet, I'll visit Old Navy.

    I don't think I'll get the missus away from Obsession.

    For me, it's Eau de Shampoo.

    LOL! I often smell like that as well - usually I Love Juicy or the Godiva shampoo bar from Lush. Or, eau de Lever 2000.

    (Lush ROCKS! - it's a British line that started opening US stores in the last few years. Natural products, some vegan, all lovely.)

    Hope your Old Navy has it - this particular line of Kiss My Face products is available only in their stores.

    I have Obsession here - it's definitely become a classic. And Dolce and Gabbana. And 24 Faubourg. And Joop! for Men (like it better than the ladies' version). And Sirene by Vicky Tiel. I always tend to like woody and/or spicy, intense fragrances. And yet, I usually just reach for the lavendar body oil from Trader Joe's...

    Preshie, I love Baby Soft. It's so, well, precious! They used to make a scent in that line called "Rain", and I loved that one, too. Very clean - smelled like fresh laundry.
    They have one similar to it by Calgon called Morning Glory. I had that whole Baby Soft set- it had lemon, rain, baby soft, and two others I can't recall right now. . .man, that was back in 1989-1990! You took me back to freshman year for that one, Bash! Also one you should try is one called Shades- it's like the Rain scent, but made by Dana Perfumes. They also have a marvelous French Vanilla that layers well with Rare Gold from Avon (here I go talking about layers and whatnot!)!

    I have this Orange Blossom scent by Sanborne that I ran up on in the dollar store- I'm not sure where it came from, but I tell you- it's unbelievable! Lightweight, but the scent lingers with you all day and is not overwhelming at all! My mom has allergies and it is one of the few I can actually wear around her.

    Have to try that Kiss My Face- it sounds hot!

    Thanks for the suggestions, Presh. I'll see if I can locate those and give 'em a try!

    Ooo..one NOT to get is... Talbot's.
    A lady was in the other day...WOW...it's distinctive...it's unique...it smells like a fully-scented ferret! Yeah, I worked for a veterinarian in the past.
    Not necessarily a good thing...unless you're another ferret...LOL!

    Speaking of animal-like scents, it seems there's a trend in fragrance that started a few years back that featured the use of grapefruit or something similar as one of the notes. Seems like every other scent I sampled had it. Sadly, to this nose (which may not be accurate due to constant allergies), it smelled like cat urine.

    Ick.

    OMG, ferret! I am not a big fan of Talbot's anyway, I should be with all their matronly clothes, but I am not, and now more reason to avoid them.
    I am the winner in any event.

    I had a dental procedure done one time where they injected some stuff into a blocked salivary gland, and it tasted like cat pee. My dentist wanted to know how I knew what cat pee tasted like. Smart a...

    That also reminds me of the movie "The Ref" with Dennis Leary, maybe time to watch it again! its so funny!

    A lady came to the workplace today, selling fragrances.

    She tried to interest me in some cologne.

    I told her: "That's OK. I'm covered."

    She replied: "With what? My cologne?"

    Was too stunned to offer a snappy comeback.

    I had someone come into an office I was working at one time, and used the line 'would you like to buy some cologne for your husband or your boyfriend?'

    I couldn't resist that one, so I said 'My husband hates when I spend money on my boyfriend.'

    They left all red-faced, had no idea I was kidding.
    I am the winner in any event.
