There's just one rule I try to live by – if you're going to give your perfume a name that's a little edge, then make what's inside edgy or at least interesting. The Pink room's Darkly Audacious is a perfectly fine florgourchouli with notes of lemon, bergamot, and rosewood; heart notes of...

I am hooked on The Pretty. Robin reviewed it here and gets some interesting nuance. I get a hit of rose and what smells like wisteria...then I get the iris (Robin got the iris first). I sniffed it alongside one of those gorgeous sweet bearded purple irises and it doesn't smell anything like...

The knowledge she has about food is the knowledge I have about perfume, so we cook and trade stuff we know and agree that Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers organic grocery store is seriously the best thing we know because we save so much money there over the big WholePaycheck pretty store...
