Masjid Sultan Salahudin Abdul Aziz | Malaysia

The Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque (Malay: Masjid Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz) is the state mosque of Selangor, Malaysia. It is located in Shah Alam. It is the country's biggest mosque and also the second biggest mosque in Southeast Asia after Masjid Islamic Center Samarinda, Indonesia.

The mosque was commissioned by the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz, when he declared Shah Alam as the new capital of Selangor on February 14, 1974. Construction began in 1982 and finished on March 11, 1988. During the reign of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz, Shah Alam Mosque was built between 1982 and 1988. The Mosque is also known as the Blue Mosque owing to its blue dome which is one of the largest in the whole world. The structure of the mosque incorporates Malay and Islamic architecture.

Its architecture is a combination of Malay and Modernist style. It is nicknamed as 'Blue Mosque' for its blue aluminium dome covered in a rosette of verses from the Qur'an.
At the hallway (first floor) of the mosque.

The main dome of the mosque is one of the biggest domes in the world, measuring 170 feet in diameter and 350 feet in height from the ground level. The four minarets are the second tallest in the world at 460 feet. In its early years, the mosque was also listed in the Guinness World Records as having the tallest minaret in the world , a title it had lost to the King Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca.

The mosque is large enough that on clear day it can be seen from certain vantage points in Kuala Lumpur. The mosque can accommodate up to 16,000 worshippers.

Love Spell by Victoria's Secret : A Horrible Fragrance

There are very few perfumes that make me feel physically ill, but Love Spell by Victoria's Secret is one of them. This is a very popular scent for many women from what I understand, but I can't quite understand why. I can't imagine this smelling good to anyone much less on anyone. Personally, I hope I never smell it again. I am not a perfume snob. I am a fan of both high and low end scents. But this one is just unbearable.

With gift giving opportunities coming up, some shoppers may turn to Victoria's Secret for bath and body gifts. If you're looking at scents sold by Victoria's Secret, skip Love Spell. Trust me, your gift recipient will thank you for not offending their nose with this vile concoction.

There are far better scent choices than Love Spell at Victoria's Secret. Scents such as Dream Angels Heavenly, Dream Angels Desire, Vanilla Lace and Amber Romance are just a few. Dream Angels Heavenly or Dream Angels Desire are for soft floral scent lovers. Vanilla Lace and Amber Romance are suitable for those who like oriental scents, sweet scents, or those with vanilla notes.

Love Spell by Victoria's Secret is classified as a floral fruity fragrance. The description from the Victoria's Secret site reads: "A lavishly lush blend of cherry blossom, muget, red apple and Georgia peach, with hints of tamarind and blondewood."

When I smell Love Spell by Victoria's Secret all I smell is an incredibly disgusting and very strange fake apple, very fruity scent that is nauseating. I love sweet scents, Pink Sugar by Aquolina is one of my favorite scents. I also love some fruity scents such as Delices de Cartier by Cartier, Fantasy by Britney Spears and With Love, by Hillary Duff. But Love Spell is just sickening.

Children of the 1970's and 1980's and beyond will recognize the smell of Love Spell immediately. Do you remember that horrible bubble gum pink liquid children's antibiotic? I had to take that awful medication more times than I care to remember growing up. I would cry and throw a fit when
I was very young, because the taste and smell would just immediately nauseate me. I immediately vomited more than a few doses, because my gag reflex simply wouldn't allow me to keep it down. Love Spell by Victoria's Secret, smells exactly like this children's antibiotic. And I do mean exactly! And it's exactly as nauseating as that antibiotic is.

Another perfume that smells very similar to Love Spell by Victoria's Secret is Heiress by Paris Hilton. This is another scent that is best avoided unless you for some insane reason actually like Love Spell.

Scents are very subjective and subject to personal tastes. But Love Spell, has absolutely no redeeming features, it's simply vile. And yes, it smells just as vile in all the forms of scent, bath and body products offered by Victoria's Secret. Please spare the people around you and don't wear this horrible scent. I guarantee you that men will run for cover and you will clear any room with this fragrance.(Elizabeth Baldwin)

Fragrance Oils or Essential Oils

Scenting your handmade soaps is a matter of personal preference. If you are are making soaps for your own use, then you can decide to use either fragrance oils or essential oils based on what you like. If you are selling your soaps, consider your market.

Essential oils are all natural plant essences. They can be derived from the plant material by several methods such as: steam distillation, CO2 extraction or cold pressing.

Steam distillation is done with a still. Pressurized steam is forced through the plant matter. The steam then passes through to a cooling chamber, where the steam is converted back to water. The essential oils from the plant are then skimmed off the surface of the water.

CO2 extraction is where liquid carbon dioxide is used to extract the oils. It is similar to the steam distillation in that pressure is used to extract the oils. When the carbon dioxide is allowed to return to its gas state, the essential oil is separated out and collected.

Cold pressed is the process by which the plant material is physically pressed until the essential oil is extracted. Citrus essential oils are commonly processed this way, as the peels are full of essential oils.

There are some scents where there is no essential oil available (such as banana) or the essential oil is much too costly or environmentally irresponsible to use (such as sandalwood or rosewood). This is where fragrance oils come in. Fragrance oils are a mixture of aroma chemicals. The mix can either be part artificial and part synthetic, or all synthetic. It just depends on the type of fragrance oil. Fragrance oils are not perfume oils, they are aroma chemicals which are not diluted, and like essential oils, should not be placed directly on the skin. They need to be diluted into your final product.

Fragrance oils are usually very complex, and can contain hundreds of aroma chemicals. When using fragrance oils for your soap, make sure that you are purchasing from a company that sells oils specifically for soap making. Reputable suppliers will have scents that are formulated according
to the RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrant Materials) standards. This means that the scents are safe for use in bath and body products. You do not want to use fragrances that are meant for candles or potpourri in your soaps, as they could be irritating to the skin.

If you plan on selling your soaps, you want to think about the market you are targeting before deciding which to scent your soap with. If you are going for the natural crowd, then essential oils are your best bet. If you are trying to please a broad audience, then offer both. Some people buy soap for the scent, and don't necessarily prefer an essential oil over a fragrance oil. Which ever you choose, get the best quality you can for your products! (Lori Kimble)
