Have you recently been to a shopping mall where they insist on spraying you with the latest fragrance? I have just learned that this practice dates all the way back to 1583. Forces under Ernest of Bavaria defeated the troops under Gebhard Truchsess von Waldburg at the Siege of Godesberg. It was called the Cologne War! Ernest had a large sample aerator of Chanel For Men; Gebhard chose Bod. I'm not sure how it all panned out, but reportedly the air around Germany was scented for days! Many of you have already received cologne and perfumes as a Hanukkah Present, many others will have some in their stockings come Christmas. Make love, not war...especially if you are buying the generic take-offs.
"The fabled musk deer searches the world over for the source of the scent which comes from itself." Ramakrishna
