MINI returned --> _INIM_ _ _

provided for a short time ---> L _ _ _ _ E N T

without embrocation?? LINIMENT is an embrocation but how does the clue put INIM inside??

Am I looking for too much?

Hi mgm

Returned short skirt provided for a short time without embrocation (8)

The word without indicates that "a short time" i.e. "lent" should be placed outside.

WITHIN

Thanks mgm ... I'm certainly no "master", and you'll find that such wordplay becomes second nature after a while.
If you keep persevering and ask questions as and when necessary you'll soon be answering our queries! ;O)
