Cumming, the Fragrance
JUST what I wanted! A men's fragrance that smells like Scotch and cigars..... errr, no. Thank you. Nor do I want it to smell like the double entendre it references.



However, the fact that there is a men's fragrance out there created by a gay Scotsman, leaves me hope for the launch of "Gray" someday soon. Perhaps it could smell like a gray day on heather covered Scottish moores - that wouldn't be so bad.

    "do I want it to smell like the double entendre it references"

    Ewwwww...that's just nasty. There's a certain type of tree/bush/plant something that grows down here that has a decidedly funky scent. I'll be driving along with the top down when suddenly...egads!

    Nah, you got it wrong. It'd be more like the bracing tang of a Hebrides beach on a July morning, with the breeze off the mountains.

    Neckbone: That might be the horse chestnut. It can take on a rather distinctive odor this time of year.

    Gray: Oh - I like that better! Just make it fresh and clean smelling, not that nasty spicy stuff. By The Way: I've got plans to attend a Ceilidh next week on Prince Edward Island. Should be fun.

    1) V. impressed you could spell caley properly

    2)if it is anything like a ceilidh at home then you better get a song or a story ready, because they usuallly end up with everyone having to do their party piece.

    C: Thanks - I did look the spelling up just for you! Somehow, making a fool out of myself in public has never been an obstacle to having fun. I mean, I have a blog for goodness sake!

    Yes, but with a blog you don't have to remember the words/tune/punch-line.

    C: I have a whole host of folk songs (OK three that I will remember no matter how many beers), that my father taught us, and I can also play the guitar (badly, but this song only has 4 chords). So I hope the good Scots of Acadia are up for a rousing rendition of "The Fox and the Goose"!

    C: Nope. Good guesses though. Actually one is an old German drinking song, and the other one is an old song I learned at camp as a kid, called "Dona".
