More than seven years after having landed in Beijing, I’m now still here and have just recently begun what seems to be yet another journey.
It all really started a few weeks ago. Out of nowhere, the idea of buying myself a bottle of Obsession for men dawned on me. I remembered how passionately
Well, if anyone happens across this, I did not suppose many...if anyone would read this other than myself, so I am writing mainly as a sort of diary to keep track of my random thoughts about fragrances and probably a lot of other things as I tend to go off subject a LOT.
