  92. Re: l'Air du Desert Marocain - How does this walk the unisex line?

    I don't think of fragrance in this way anymore (if I ever did). It's liberating. (I'm not trying to be condescending with that comment, just stating something that has really expanded my enjoyment of...
  93. Re: Any Annick Goutal fans? What are your favorites from the line?

    Re: Brit...or London?

    Re: Post your favorite Comme des Garçons

    +1 for Rhubarb (I really should buy a bottle). Also:

    Energy C: Grapefruit
    Artek Standard
    Palisander
