  1. High street raid

    Went out for an afternoon in town and sniffed everything I could get my hands on. My education continues...

    Things I did NOT like:

    Ghost Deep Night – Something I don't like in the top end of this. An acrid fruit of some sort. Remains present into the midstage as well. BN reviews describe it as “Deep but cool & smooth woody vanilla with touch of apricot & peach” and “The peach and apricot combine with something else, perhaps vanilla, to make an almost grape-like ...
  2. Re-examining Pleasures for Men

    Rereading the reviews, I agree with Darvant that it's unabashedly plastic and artificial. It gives me the same feel as some very dirt-cheap things my mother occasionally used to "treat" herself to, although past that nasty opening it's a far better quality offering.

Nevertheless for a cheapie this is surprisingly pleasant and is an amber which is restrained and awake enough to be daywear, something I don't think I've come across before. There's a foul-tempered, bitter orange note somewhere under the amber's sleepy haze that rescues this from being too cuddly and gives it a bit more edge - in any other scent I ...

  5. Why Your Brochures Fail to Impress

    Brochures are sometimes considered a thing of the past, especially in today's digital marketing world.
    But they do still have a valuable part to play.
    Whether you have them printed as a hand-out for exhibitions or conferences, or as a PDF download from your website, brochures remain a valid form of marketing collateral.
    So, if that's the case, why did your last one tank?
    Why did no one read it?
    Your brochure is only as good as the images and words it contains and ...
