Late '70s - Purple photocopies. We had some arcane photocopying machine* in our school - it printed everything in purple and it smelled divine - a kind of powdery floral scent.  Five-year-old Hoor could often be found clasping a photocopy to her face and inhaling deeply.  Was mine the only school to have this?

The '80s smelled of Dior's Poison (mother, ugh), Body Shop White Musk (me) or Dewberry ([livejournal.com profile] scarletts_web).  I think The Body Shop was the predominant smell of the decade as it was cheap back then and it's where I purchased all my smellies - banana shampoo, fuzzy peach shower gel, cucumber cleanser, carrot moisturizer - I must have smelt like a salad. A musky salad.  [livejournal.com profile] scarletts_web  and I both loved Spiritual Sky patchouli oil as well. My mother always complained that patchouli oil gave her a headache and that even the cat stank of patchouli oil due to my over-enthusiastic application of the scent.  I still wear patchouli oil today, even though I most definitely am not a hippy, or a goth. I am also still fond of Body Shop smellies (the pink grapefruit range in particular) though I find Body Shop stuff quite expensive these days.

Early '90s - Colors of Benneton and Ex'cla-mation! by Coty. The latter was very cheap and nearly every girl I knew had a bottle.  I haven't seen Colors of Benneton in years, I wonder if I'd still like it?

* A mimeograph! Or possibly a spirit duplicator!

Bill Bryson is also a mimeograph fan: “Of all the tragic losses since the 1960s, mimeograph paper may be the greatest. With its rapturously fragrant, sweetly aromatic pale blue ink, mimeograph paper was literally intoxicating. Two deep drafts of a freshly run-off mimeograph worksheet and I would be the education system’s willing slave for up to seven hours.” Sniffing the paper he “…drifted off to a private place where fields were green, everyone went barefoot, and the soft trill of panpipes floated on the air.” -

'Most Magnificent Invention Of All Time' Story Of The Day
'Brewers have invented a beer laced with cheese to help amorous boozers perform after a night on the tiles. The brew promises a 'positive and healthy' response even after a skinful. "My wife can't have any objection to me spending the night down the pub now," said one drinker in Bregenz. One risk which could break the mood though might be the drinker's breath after a night of cheesy booze. So drinkers be weary to take a toothbrush out to the pub with them' - Metro.

Sponsor me and my mate on our coast-to-coast cycle!

Did anyone see this last night?  If I may re-tweet DrSamuelJohnson Mister THEROUX's dystopick America of wise Infants & foolish Adults where the wrong Half of the Populace receives Physick

Basically if you're a bit naughty, or a normal adolescent you'll get drugged til you learn to behave, or conform.

I've about 10 in my drawer for the past few years - I put them on ebay but they didn't sell.  They're from 2005/6.  If I don't hear anything they're going on Freecycle.
