+1 on Endymion.
So the partner says that Grafton is "sketchy"... How very inarticulate of them! Maybe if they could give you a better idea about their perceptions of it's positive and/or negative attributes, you'd be in a better position to "accommodate" them.
"Deeply committed to scent as a lifestyle" That is freakin' awesome, man. I might have to put that in my signature!
