I'm a curious person, all right; I'd also love to try this perfume (arf arf). And I just have to share with you that my word for verification is the rather risqué "turdt" - a Germanic turd, one assumes.

LOVE the Dicksee; had never knowingly come across him - although I've had La Belle Dame sans Merci in my consciousness, it seems, for ever - but am now googling him. "Passion" is quite something.

T (somewhat more scattered even than usual)

I stumbled upon Oro and was shocked by how interesting it is--here's wishing you all luck in the draw.

Tommasina, "Passion" is gorgeous. I would love to see it someday, but it's in private hands according to ARC.

I will have a talk with the word verifier...
