Cologne and perfume fragrances are the product of both art and science. The biology and chemistry balance nicely with the creative, and likely countless, fragrance combinations. All play with that unique interaction between the brain and the nose to produce an appealing scent that is also uniquely appreciated (or not).

Though the purpose of such aroma is to enhance the pleasant nature of its subject, the unmistakable (and often common) extreme is similar to 'putting lipstick on a pig'. It makes me wonder why we can't accept the natural state of our uniqueness. Furthermore, I've noticed more folks who are susceptible to cosmetic and superficial changes and ideas - believing in them as 'gospel'. Whatever happened to critical thinking? When will we move the pendulum back towards a bit of skepticism? Naples, FL
