I don't like to do it, but I do it. You know -- covet stuff. It doesn't help that my favorite triathlete, Mary (at circuslunch.com) made me aware of the website known as Mighty Goods. She's right -- you go there and see if you don't start drooling over 90% of the products they advertise. I've been reading the archives and I'm only up to November 2005.

If you like perfumes please do set aside four or five hours one day and peruse her website. I love reading about her perfumes and oils even more than I like to read cookbooks. Her Perfection Connoisseur perfumes are amazing. You can order samples of everything. I have owned Cafe Noir and Perfume de luxe. They were my favorites until I bought a sample of Piment et Chocolat and I have been thinking about ordering some of that heavenly perfume for a Christmas present pour moi. (Are you listening, Santa Bickerson?) Pepper, chili, pimento and chocolate -- all wrapped up in an amazing perfume.
