I find the same with the Toast catalogue. It goes straight in the recycling as it stinks so bad!

FrancesFarmer Wed 08-Jun-11 17:38:44

Oh, I love the smell of the Toast catalogue.

madammecholet Wed 08-Jun-11 18:25:00

Hear hear.......oh I thought you meant the clothes.....grin

I love the smell of the White stuff catalogue, I knew it was in the house today before I saw it just by the smell

cornsilks Wed 08-Jun-11 18:34:40

I didn't notice <weirdo>

It's eco friendly vegetable based ink.

Some catalogues do stink....arts venues brochures are the worst. I think it's because they go for matt. Gloss never stinks.

I read my WS catologue watching tennis DC's tennis lesson, so didn't notice.

yes toast smells so bad I ahve to recycle immediately

I think I might be due Joe Browns catalogue again soon

I bloody hate them

PharoahNuff Wed 08-Jun-11 18:47:14

It smells

cornsilks Wed 08-Jun-11 18:47:45

The only catalogue I really look at is Brora. Very poncey

DirtyMartini Wed 08-Jun-11 18:48:00

Toast is vom-worthy.

JemimaMop Wed 08-Jun-11 18:51:40

I noticed, and now you mention it the brochures from my local arts centre smell a bit strange too.

QueeferSutherland Wed 08-Jun-11 21:46:24

Yes yes yes!

It smells so baaad.

I sniff all publications I am about to peruse, and the WS catalogue knocks my pop socks off.

dottyaboutstripes Wed 08-Jun-11 22:39:32

Does anyone get the Howies catalogue? Stinky!

FrancesFarmer Wed 08-Jun-11 22:45:52

Every time I see this thread title, I feel like running upstairs to my Toast catalogue and having a sniffing session. Where's that deranged smiley?

I didnt notice the smell, but I did see a reversible skirt
Do adults want reversible clothes?

dexter73 Thu 09-Jun-11 06:53:13

Saves on the washing EldonAve!

BikeRunSki Fri 10-Jun-11 20:53:32

I got a reversible skirt from WS last summer. I liked one side the best, but as Eldon said - saves on washing - and was very handy when I dropped choc ice cream on it when I was out.
