06:37 am - snob update
So I had grumped myself into deciding to avoid the Bellevue Square mall and ordering what I wanted from the Lush website instead. But horrors! the particular product I wanted was out of stock on the site.

I phoned the Bellevue store and inquired, and was reassured they, at least, had "tons" in stock. So I stopped there on my way to my mother's place after all and fulfilled my desires for scented stuff. Fairly easily done - since I don't have a tub I can avoid the blandishments of the bath products, and I still tend to prefer to be relatively unscented, I can resist getting an entire suite of products to use together.

Back when I used to sell Avon they recommended "layering" your fragrance: buying and applying soap-shampoo-talc-body spray-deoderant AND eau de toilet all with the same scent. Those are the people with perfume so strong you can taste it. Blech.

I finally may have figured out what the issue was with that whole Avon 'layering' business, and the *coff* potency of some of their scents. Because of our awesome climate here, I think fragrance tends to have more 'throw' than in other climates. As a result, a little scent goes a lot further here, and things that are heavily scented (did you ever smell 'Haiku"?) becaome overpowering.

It's either that or we all have more sensitive noses :-)

The concept of layering has a certain validity, but it needs to be delicately done, not just hosed on in industrial quantities. I'm of the belief that anyone outside of my personal space area should only get the faintest whiff of my perfume.
