Does Size Matter?
Yes, I say, it does. But not necessarily the bigger the better. Talking of perfume bottles here. So, have a look at this link: http://www.tauerperfumes.com/blog/ Andy Tauer has another wonderful ROSE scent. But good things come in small packages. The strong perfume is housed in a 10 ml roll-on version, and that at an affordable price. So, they will sell, that is good...
Lost - gone forever
The current version of "Shalimar Eau de Parfum" is ... how shall I put it ... not anymore what it once was. I ordered a bottle just for the sake of nostalgia and was certain that it would be a reformulated version of the 1980 version I had and cherished. My signature. My treasured possession.

Especially, since I got into a mess. There is that "free scanner service" which scanned and found immense portions of files "to be fixed". "Fix for free" so they say ... But, but, why then...
International Flavors & Fragrances Inc.
So happy. Why? Taking a daily tally of investments, I noticed that IFF went up nicely today. Not a bad stock to have, it has performed well over the years. Recently, the company has concentrated on the emerging markets. Then, I went to the company website and found this: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=65743&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1941465&highlight=
