    Spanish Leather Cologne is my most worn Trumpers. A superb creation. I find it very versatile:fine for work,weekend or a more formal setting. The development,through the note pyramid is on a par with...

    Re: 29 year old juice that smells like new

    Re: Lacoste original bottle question

    No photo I'm afraid. I can confirm,though,that the 30ml differs from the 50 and 100ml in terms of bottle composition. The 30ml should have a sticker/decal affixed to the bottle. This replaces the...
