  48. What Can I say .. without reading your newsletters that arrive every evening at 10.30pm in my inbox, I could never have expanded on my perfume collection. In fact just this morning i was discussed fresh tuberose flowers at the flower store with a person randomly smelling them ( whether they wanted to hear it or not). Your passion and generosity in giveaways have brought me so much knowledge and in turn you have passed on your love for scent to me and many others across the globe.

    Thank you. I just love it.
