  1. Re: Scent of the night - what fragrance did you sleep with last night

    Lately, I’ve just been topping off my SOTD at bedtime. Tonight it’s Mugler Cuir Impertinent. I sure love the dry down in the morning.

    Re: Why did you wear what you wore today..

    This morning, I chose Mugler Cuir Impertinent because it’s chilly in the mornings now and its leather envelopes me in comfort. The trademark Mugler house style prevents any cloying feeling.
