Thing is it isnt even the real thing. You are all tripping on fake perfumes. Here where spice is a real thing, even we treat it with respect. I had a lady pass out last week when she smelled a lady of the night bloom [aka ylang ylang] its powerful stuff and she had an athsma attack from it. We all know fresh cinnamon dust is dangerous, it causes coughing fits. Nutmeg is fine if not powdered, then same issue.

Probably safer if you stick to the fake stuff.

You must have mistaken them for something else. A number of things taste better with olives - pizza, salad, omelets, and sandwiches among other things. Little Miss P is picky about some things, but she does like extra olives on her salads and pizza.

No they're disgusting. Olive Oil is fab, use it on practically everything and there's nothing better with a chunk of fresh bread. Olives otoh are
