Wiki on Initiative and Referendum:

In U.S. politics, initiative and referendum is a process that allows citizens of many U.S. states[1] to place new legislation on a popular ballot, or place laws recently passed by the legislature on the ballot, and vote on it. Initiative and referendum, along with recall elections and popular primary elections, is one of the signature reforms of the Progressive Era. It is written into the constitutions of several states, particularly in the Western United States.

Then imagine what kind of atmosphere, image, or aura the scent is intended to evoke and incense. create a post under the title as “Making Senses of Scents” on your own blog and talk about which perfume, cologne, or eau de toilette attracts you and which you would like to give as a present to someone special. Note down  the names, the major notes of the scent,  the aura or impression they evoke or create, and the reason why you choose them for yourself and someone special.

A Quote on Beauty

What do you consider to be beautiful? And how would you like to define the word “beauty”?

Search online for quotes on beauty that you find most close to what you think and list the reason why you choose the quotes. Post it as a comment to the title.

Examples:

Even I don’t wake up looking like Cindy Crawford.

~ Cindy Crawford

It is great to know that even Cindy Crawford, one of the world top models, doesn’t look like what she appears on media. Her honesty gives a great relief to those who aspire to be as glamorous as her and  are not granted the wish. Despite her frankness, Cindy is supposed to be far above the average even waking up in a messy look .

The problem with beauty is that it’s like being born rich and getting poorer.
~ Joan Collins

This is exactly the reason why we need to cultivate inner beauty, which may last longer.

Another  Lovely Quote:

Do you love me because I’m beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?
~ Oscar Hammerstein, II

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” simply put.
