    I could say Roja’s Parfum De La Nuit No.3 is my favorite rose, but at $1,400 a bottle it would be a lazy choice. Say what you will about Roja’s line, his rose and jasmine essences are the best going around, which is why he loads his fragrances with
  2. A very heavy day

    Today is the three year anniversary of my son's lost other half. They were BFF for eight years. Austin was the most beautiful, talented, genius boy I've ever seen. I don't use the word genius lightly. He was one. No, I didn't actually like him. I was too worried for my own Jon, and I knew Austin was extremely unstable. Jon. Jon kept asking Austin to "talk to my mom." And it was Jon who kept such close tabs on Austin that he was there shortly after two OD's to get the proper medical ...
  3. Une aire de reformulation

    Today.... Continues to be warm outside.
    And the choice of the day was Montales Red Vetyver.
    I know people have lots of love for DHermes, but Omg... Surely that can't beat this for overall smell as well as performance. This kicks butt, that opening of Grapefruit and bright sharp Citrus.
    Woooow Woooow..... Absolutely love this as it just kept going and going, Montale have some stunners and bangers but this has to be up there with the best releases from the Great Montale. ...
