A while back, he bought some really expensive air freshener while on vacation. It came in a tiny glass bottle and cost like $1,000. It smelled just like Endust. Yeah, the dusting spray. It's awful. Nothing you can try to cover with it could smell worse than this stuff. If you just took a dump, light a match, but don't spray Endust, right? Incidentally, the bottles say, "Do Not use on polished/painted surfaces." I suppose many people must mistake it for dusting spray.
So recently he decided to write the company and tell them that he thought the products may have spoiled on the shelf.
Here was his message:

Pretty diplomatic, right?
Well, this was the reply.

Hello Mark,Thank you for contacting me. Unfortunately I can not take the products back and give you a replacement. The **** in Las Vegas has closed there doors for some time now. But what I would like to do is give you a little insight into the product and how you might understand the energetics that are going on with them and yourself. I have a web site up if you would like to look into this a little more. www.northamerica-aurasoma.comFirst Archangel Uriel. The colors are gold on the top and royal blue on bottom. The Equilibrium bottle is B097 http://www.northamerica-
aurasoma.com//product_info. php?products_id=459 Also the product of the month is Archangel Uriel http://www.northamerica- aurasoma.com/information.php? info_id=31Over the years of being a teacher and practitioner of Aura-Soma I have seen students not be ready for a product there fore they have a negative reaction to it. What that tells me the timing is not correct and there is other work to address first. Once this is recognize and address the negative reaction leaves and the student is open to these energies. The gold of Archangel Uriel is talking about Universal Wisdom coming through the intuitive senses of your body. There could be a real resistance to becoming intuitive to your fullest being because of something that has happened in the past. Please check out the home page of my site to have a greater understanding of what I am talking about.The Hilarion Air Conditioner is a truth seeker.http://www. northamerica-aurasoma.com// product_info.php?cPath=35_48& products_id=143 It is also B053 http://www.northamerica- aurasoma.com//product_info. php?cPath=35_48&products_id= 143This energy is asking us to look into the deepest areas of our heart and recognize the trapped emotional blocks that we are holding onto. Once they are released we open ourselves to move into a new direction.I know this is allot of information and if you would like a consultation to have a greater understanding please feel free to contact me and we can set up an appointment.I send my very best and wish you an insightful journey.
Much love and light,Debbie((contact info redacted)
So, let's get this straight. We thought their ridiculously over-priced products stunk (literally) and rather than apologize or replace them, they blame us for not being emotionally prepared for their air freshener? I love this quote: "There could be a real resistance to becoming intuitive to your fullest being because of something that has happened in the past."
I never realized that one must complete counseling and perhaps graduate from some scent academy in order to find an air freshener pleasant. It's weird because Lysol never gave a shit if I took classes.
This is where Mark gets Marky. He's not a guy who likes to take crap from people, or waste money. (The red part is my emphasis on hilarity.)

First of all, the **** has not closed down.
Secondly, you are a teacher?
Misspellings and bad grammar?
You obviously know that your products suck, and now I know it wasn't simply a bad bottle.
So here's what you do teach: spray a couple of bottles of that garbage up your schnoz, run free and naked in your new-age full-of-crap factory -- then jump into a pool of reality.
I'll be sure to tell the directors of the **** you are spreading the word about them being closed.
Oh my God. I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. Gotta love those middle-of-the-night emails. Needless to say, we haven't yet signed up for consultations on insightfulness. And we still think the air fresheners smell like cleaning chemicals.
But upon reading the website she referred to, I learned some important things, like this:
"I have found that when you ask the appropriate questions the bottles will reveal your comprehensive sequence to unlocking a more evolved you."
"Your unconscious does not understand the language of color. Aura-Soma can show you what needs addressing so you can move forward in a language the unconscious does not understand. Color is the KEY to unlocking the unconscious. Once the resistance is removed. You can receive your divine gifts that are yours and it can bring more joy, bliss, pleasure, peace and abundance into your life."
All that from a magic bottle! A stinky one at that!
Then I found that the Archangel Uriel scent has more powers! (Again, red is my emphasis, this time on oddness):
"It helps to support the growth towards clarity of intuitive perception, to use awareness with compassion, with warmth. It may awaken awareness of fear and confusion, or the tendency to intellectualization, to empower the mind more then the intuitive faculties."
No wonder we're running scared of these products!
