You can even use my best cologne

Be prepared to read about the best blog about Shepherd's Bush. Ever, ever. Market Stall Perfume documents "a selection of the craptacular fragrances available at Shepherd's Bush Market and neighbouring pound shops". With a strap line like that you Shepherd's Bush residents, with an only too-familiar knowledge of these shops and the allergy-inducing and IP-infringing merchandise this could potentially cover, will have high hopes that only the worst and most offensive smells and knock-offs are featured. You will not be disappointed.

I believe someone may have brought this blog to my attention (thank you to you!) when I first started my own Bush blogging journey back in September 2009 but sadly the blog hasn't been updated since so I held off sharing the amusement it brought me. However, as I'm in the process of compiling a list of local bloggers and sites for a new section of this blog I found Market Stall Perfumes sitting dormant in my Google Reader list and thought it had to be shared as it was just as funny and ingenious as the first time I read it. I have therefore only included a small selection of the photographs featured and urge you to click and scroll through the blog to enjoy the author's original comments. Hilarious.

If anyone out there owns this blog or knows who does please get in touch, I want to shake your hand and buy you a bottle of Wolf Man (Lady or Man).
