But Jimmy, YOU don't need a cologne to do that!

"Our pure, gentle daily shampoo—with Morikue<SUP>TM</SUP> protein—cleanses and fortifies any type of hair. Infusing it with one of Aveda's original aromas: a calming mix of 25 pure flower and plant essences."
Hmmm This may require some investigation....I must admit that I am "anti-expensive hair soap" I belong to the club that believes that shampoos are all the same (ar'nt they?), but I will breakdown and search for this "Shampure".
In my quest for an obsenely perfumed shampoo, I have come across some real gems....seriously! One of the best values out there is anything by Suave. I have one that is "Coconut" in fragrance and is nice. The bottle is like $1.60 CAD. That converts to like 15 cents US. Try it.

I'm glad we are also talking about perfumes as I am quite the fragrance nut. I like Clinique's Chemistry (give it a try). Speaking of fragrances.....there is a store in Playa that sells essencial oils that mimic many international brands. The little store is located as follows: from 5th (la quinta) get to the bus station and look inland up Benito Juarez. Walk up Benito Juarez on the right side of the street. The store is located (if memorie serves) about 2 blocks up.

Now, back to shampoos and fragrances....any one else recommend an obsenely (sp) fragrant shampoo?

I still am, unfortunately. I'm always looking for products that make my hair shinier, softer, prettier. I'm not sure why because I always get compliments on my hair so you'd think I wouldn't always be searching for better.
I always think I am low maintenance until I have to take it somewhere then I have all this crap that I pack and I think to myself "I should really cut down on all this stuff" I never do though. The other problem is that I have really thick hair and lots of it. My hair is not wash and go hair, at least not to my satisfaction.

That would drive my hubby CRAZY. I do the same thing. I've got some things that haven't been completely used. He asks..."When are you gonna finish this stuff?" He shaves his head as well as Mickey and only uses the bar of soap. I think the rest of the "stuff" on the shelf is mine. It's such a trial, sometimes, being a girl!

I use "Sebastian" shampoos and they all smell great and for quite a long time too.
