I too use the bar....guess I need to place one on the lavitory now!
no doctor here, just a man who went through dental TORTURE TORTURE TORTURE (how's that for emphasis! ) and spent $18,000 of my own money a few years ago having my dental problems corrected, which meant pulling wisdom teeth, teeth whose roots had rotted IN the gums in back (talk about breath issues), severe gum receding, etc. And I had always, always brushed my teeth regularly! I got my problems fixed. The specialist who did my crowns in Las Vegas wasn't for or against my using soap (which I came across in my own desperate researching). But, he did admit that my gums were healing quickly and turning pink and tightening around the teeth far more quickly than he anticipated. I've used only soap and baking soda for three years now and truly...morning breath was the first thing to disappear. Your mouth feels unbelievably clean afterward.
And momof2dfw, I honestly don't know about fillings or how to whiten them. Maybe an electric toothbrush with that powerful motion and some baking soda?
Now, back on subject....
I've been looking up the cheapest places to replenish my colognes. Any suggestions?? The Boucheron I found online (Eau de Parfum), for the same bottle I have, showed a retail of $100!!!! It was a gift to me and I had no idea it was so expensive. Any suggestions you scent/perfume experts have as to where to go to buy these things cheaper?

A duty free shop at the airport???

I don't know about those discount stores that sell makeup and perfume/cologne. Most don't carry the higher end stuff anyway.

If you have a chance to be on a cruise ship, either there or any of the islands. That's where I get most of my refills. Or....the duty free airport stores if you are going out of the country.

Please do not talk about dental bills. I probably could have bought a Mercedes with all the periodontal surgery I've had to have (but my teeth do look nice). I've had braces as a teenager and as an adult when my teenage son got his. Because of the gum problems, they eventually spread out and forward a bit so, I'm going to "consult" about this baking soda/Ivory stuff. Maybe I can start saving towards that Mercedes

If you know anyone who lives on a military base, they are usually cheaper in the commisary. Also, check out cosmeticcompanystore.com. I know that when working for Estee Lauder, we could get products there for 1/2 price. It may be cosmetic(s)companystore.com. Been a long time since I searched there, and we don't have internet access here at work for me to check it out.

oh and Drug Emporium usually has them discounted. Sometimes in the box, and sometimes out.

Yeah, it hurt me to write a check for $18,000 when I had mine done as my insurance covered only $1500 max per year, the rest I had to cough up myself. Luckily, I had the money. Otherwise I'd have been _ucked. The doctor, whom I've alread recommended to momof2dfw ...Dr. Thomas R. Gonzalez of Las Vegas...(he's SUPERB!!!), is an expert and not only did he do my crowns, but also fixed my four front teeth with a bridge done so well that my gums have filled in between them like natural teeth, and my teeth look fantastic, and, feel fantastic. I had him do a bit darker shade than he wanted to for the crowns as the blinding white people always choose looks like dentures to me. Mine are still very white, but more natural looking. I prefer it He did such a wonderful job that I cannot tell the difference between what's his or what's mine!
As for where to shop, thanks for the tips!!!

LOLLL. Well, they're ALL yours.
Thanks for the recommendation but if I get anywhere near Las Vegas, I doubt I will make it to the dentist. Last time there, I dropped one of the Mercedes' tires between the hotel entrance and the elevators that were towards the back with my suitcase still dragging behind me!

I like for myself:
Obsession for Men
Joop
Boucheron
Jovan Musk Oil (believe it or not!)
(I'm going to a department store to buy Obsession and Joop Friday as I haven't bought any for a few years and I'm long out)

For women I like:
Happy (I love the smell of Happy on women. The men's version makes me puke).
White Shoulders
Chanel 5 or 19
Nina Ricci

What do you like for men and women?
A man who wears "Eternity" by Calvin Klein needs to wear nothing else....;=)

I prefer Chanel 5 for me.

Loves Baby Soft...oh my....brings back so many wonderful memories of getting all piffed up to go to the skating rink and spraying that stuff...and the Jovan Musk, we thought that was so sexy, and the Gloria Vanderbilt and Windsong. My boyfriends always got the Polo and the Halston Z-14 from me!

Intuition for Men by Estee Lauder is great as is Kenneth Cole Black.

My favorite's now are Lovely, Romance and believe it or not, the last one by Britney (can't remember the name, I like the vanilla in it)


Pleasures is nice, I can't get into Beautiful for some reason. My favorite Este is Beyond Paradise.

I used to use Windsong as air freshner in my bedroom when I was a teenager.

Brittanys perfume is Curious. I don't like it. I think because vanilla gives me a headache.
