  1. Re: New Luca Turin book - your thoughts? Here are mine.

    I pick the book up, read a little, put it down. Over, & over & over. It's fun! Do I agree with every single review or comment? No, but that's ok. Rarely do I agree entirely with anything I...

  4. Re: Let's have some fun! Your favorite quotes from "Perfumes, The Guide"??

    The Mona di Orio one is entertaining but inaccurate. It's obvious they sprayed the MdO's on scent strips & sniffed for all of 5 seconds.

    I like the ck IN2U Him one best.

    Exactly. The Food scents are only available vis a vis the shop. To quote cb ihateperfume web site ""Food accords available only at the gallery." It's worth a call though.
  27. Re: Perfumes with scent of rice? Any out there?

    Also, cb i hate perfume has one in his shop called "sweet rice". You can probably call the shop & order it. I've smelled it & it's spot on!
