Re: scent


Love it. White Shoulders was my first wife's favorite scent. She is probably in your mother's cohort, Kitty. Strange and interesting how those decorative odors seem to define generations and eras and other, more defined periods of time. My second wife always said I was her favorite scent [and, I confess, she was mine]. Something about that great hippie experience that can never duplicated or quite replicated.

I remember being given a bottle of 'White Shoulders by an admirer back in
high school. The young man hadn't a clue so bought what the woman at the
counter suggested. It sat on my dresser for a few years and when I was in
college, I thought I'd give it a try. It really did smell quite nice.
However, when my boyfriend got a whiff of it, he got a strange look on his
face and said, "WHAT are you wearing?" I told him and he replied, "I
thought so, my mother wears it all the time." I never did again!

After my own heart...got introduced to those scents with Coty "Sweet
Earth"
wood fragrances years ago (my age, my age) featuring sandalwood, amberwood
and patchouli in a handy little purse case. Finally, went to The Body
Shop
to find a replacement for just one.

Woo HOO....lets hear it for Patchouli and Sandlewood....just an old
hippy
here.  Love it.

Jesse, you rang my bell!  Sandalwood is my favorite - what I use all
the time and have been for nearly 40 years.  Patchouli sometimes.  I
find I can't smell it after I have it on for 10 minutes:-)  Have used
Crabtree & Evelyn's Sandalwood for about 30 years - their bath and
shower gel was my luxury and, of course, they quit making it.
Correspondence with them indicates they're gonna bring it back - very
good news to my old ears:-)
