    Today I'm wearing Noir Épices, created by Edmond Roudnitska's son Michel and »published« in 2000 by Frédéric Malle. Looking outside I notice how nature has already changed noticeably. The leaves are...

    Re: What's your favorite designer scent?

    It is hard for me to choose between Chanel's Égoïste and Knize Ten. At the moment I don't know what the latest restrictions of the EU did to Knize Ten. Égoïste however smells very good to me.
