    Ancient perfumes revived to celebrate royal engagement


    As a gift, to celebrate his engagement, Prince Nicolo Boncompagni Ludovisi has commissioned an exquisite perfume, first crafted four hundred years ago by his ancestor, the then Prince of Piombino, for his Princess.

    hmmm
    curious whether this sales pitch is backed by a decent perfume. Especially seeing that the nose seems to be lacking in any sort of reputation on basenotes whilst the site claims that he is one of the few, if not only master perfumers in the world. Ordered a sample.
    I take a bottle of wine and I go drink it among the flowers.
    We are always three ... counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon
    Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty
    When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence. When I dance, my shadow dances too.
    After all festivities the guests must depart. This sadness I do not know.
    When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me

    "Prince Nicoḷ has agreed that these unique perfumes should not be kept an within the family. So, as the wedding approaches, a limited number will be available exclusively from the www.PrinceNBL.com website"

    I love it when they make it sound like they're doing us a favour. Really.

    Now, where's my Vanity Fair guide to the minor European royals ?....

    Amusing marketing, really. Just when I thought Creed was already over-the-top.

    Whoa, the princess is Rita "I had sex on the Capitol steps" Jenrette! I haven't heard her name in long while. Based on pictures in a recent interview at The Scented Salamander, it looks like Rita still enjoys flashing some skin, or at least a lot of leg.
    Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
    Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.
