Hippie perfume bandit strikes Ashland

A music store in Ashland had a sign that read “Dog free zone/Patchouli free zone”. Patchouli is a longtime favorite perfume of choice for the Woodstock crowd for its tradition and its canny ability to cover body odor and marijuana smells. An irate Ashland woman in dreadlocks and big glasses visited the store and began to secretly spill patchouli droplets around the store creating a strong odor. Thanks to a security camera and much public press she was discovered.
