Christmas Gift Service: a rant.

Looking for a gift for a loved one? 

Alternatively, are you looking for a gift for someone you don't even like all that much?

Well, you can't go wrong with scent, avoiding as it does most common problems involving sizing, allergies, sobriety, illiteracy, and diets. But do you go for Chanel or Gucci? Marc Jacobs or Hugo Boss? Gaultier or Laurent?

Luckily all such problems are solved by a headline I saw in the Telegraph newspaper a while ago:

African elephants have the best smell in the animal kingdom

it said.

I admit the wrapping might prove a slight problem, but you'd get full points for originality and surprise, wouldn't you.

Word To Use Today: scent. This word comes from the Old French sentir to sense, from the Latin sentīre, to feel.
