I have been seriously thinking about something for special occasions. Should those ever arise.

My new cologne that I got for free just came in the mail

What brand is it?

Yes, I know, I'm a label queen.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. I got the men's version because it smelled better.

Men's perfumes smell better. It is known. :smilenod:

Started moving my stuff to the new apartment, pictures will be posted shortly :grin:

If you need an interior designer, my fee is quite reasonable.


At first I read 'free' there!  :P

JJ: one of my favorite Colognes was branded under the name GUNK.  It is/was a degreaser compound that is water soluble and does a thorough job of cleaning greasy- oily motorcycles, tractors, and whatever needed a good cleansing bath..  The main component was Creolic acid (are you there chemist wizard Hermes?)  It left a decidedly clean smell but only appealed to gear heads like you, me BR, and a few others of the busted knuckle clan.

In fact I like the scent of a freshly bathed body that has been recently cleansed with LAVA soap..  Twenty Mule Team Borax also leaves a pleasing but subtle scent after scrubbing with it.

Waqaaaaay back in the olden days there was a ferfume called Blue Waltz.  It was enormously popular and never failed to cause me to wretch.  I used to ride the street car/trolley car in Tampa.  The Latinos seemed to favor that sickeningly sweet smell. I have more than once pulled the cord to stop the trolley so that I could escape the overwhelming and wretch worthy pollution from that damned stuff.  It was anything but pheremone laden.

LAVA soap was a good scrubber, but you had to use that bar like a scrub brush. Gunk worked well. I personally liked ANCO brand hand cleanser. It hasn't been produced for many years, and I see ads on feebay for boxes of "NOS" cleanser.  ::) I do actually have a box of it (ANCO hand cleanser) still, in the front bathroom. It really does a job of cleaning grease off of one's hands, and even gets the gasoline smell off, as advertised.

Ha, wishful thinking! But as a fellow HAFer I will give you 100% off from my usual fee of US$1000 per square meter.

Yes, I'm here! I don't know the creolic acid you refer to, but it could have been carbolic acid or cresylic acid.

Smells are very good memory triggers. To me, the chlorine smell of swimming pool chemicals is very evocative of the steam baths I used to visit as a young man.

The converse is also also true: the special occasions will arise after you find a fragrance that works well with your body chemistry. One way to tell that a scent is right for you is if you can't smell it on yourself after 20 minutes. Others will, though, and will flock to you like iron filings to a magnet.

Got my first job offer. Isn't so much interesting though because it is an IT consultancy job. Pays quite decently (80,000 EUR), but it most likely means travelling from one customer to another in different parts of Germany.

Do you like to travel on business?

No, I rather stay at home in bed and get sleeping rich.
