    That is appropriate - I have mine next to the toilet so I can just dump it directly in without the intermediate step of applying it to my face first. ;)

    My Daddy always told me, "Son, there's three things you never discuss in public: religion, politics, and The Veg."

    I searched for and failed to find some Lilac Veg today, but I did snag a bottle of Pinaud Clubman at Walgreens! I recognized that smell as soon as I slapped a few drops onto my face. After it dried a bit, I still found it pleasant. Unless someone on the board wants to PIF me a sample of Lilac Vegetal, I may have to order some from Amazon to see if I am one of the Vegetal "chosen ones".

    :)Howdy! Most barbershop suppliers have Lilac Vegetal as well as eBay. It should be readily available.
    Always, Gene

    I found and purchased the veg locally.
    whew, this stuff is potent. more than the sample, sent In the mail.
    I put it in a glass decanter, in a couple weeks I'll check it again.
    I'm not real sure if I want to breathe in the aroma, or barf. I'm perplexed.

    I have to admit, "…smells like a slightly humid summer evening—in a Durian grove." is by far one of the best descriptions of the Veg I have come across. :happy097:

    I hope the glass helps it out some.
    I can't see me wearing this as is.
    can't say I didn't try it.
    I'm gonna leave it alone for a while in the glass.

    HazMat suits and respirators have been known to help even moreso.

    Don't like the scent at all. I will say however that if you have an irritation problem it is soothing

    …but wearing the Veg then creates an irritation to those around you. :D

    I found some at a local beauty supply store. It's not bad at all. I was expecting the worst cat pee smell, but it really flowery out of the bottle. Smells like an old lady on her way to church. Initially, it smells really bad like an old granny, but after about 10 minutes, it smells very green and foresty with just a touch of floral. It's ok, not my favorite, but far from offensive. YMMV, of course.
