Useless for wearing to work, so this one goes down as a failure, I think.
I bought that blind at a discounter years ago, and hated it so badly I returned it to the store.

I liked Palisander quite a bit, but put it into one of the swap boxes, so I hope someone else is enjoying it now. I kinda miss it.

Today, I knew what I was going to wear, clothing-wise, but had no idea on the scent. Finally I grabbed Bulgari Black which I have but never think about, or at least never used to think about until someone in a scent group I post to, posted a picture of it which involved a Christmas tree, a bottle of Bulgari Black, and handcuffs. I don't know why I would respond to such an off-beat and suggestive image (or the discussion that followed), but for some reason I put it into the winter rotation and am not regretting it.
