    So much for blind sniffing, eh?

    Justin: go to Skins, knock yourself out, and on the way back to Central Station, drop by Shu Uemura in Magna Plaza. Alternatively: check out the A'dam niche fragrance map I made. In the city shopping forum.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Since I'm not familiar in Amsterdam.. I went to see a few clothing shops wich can't be found near.. but I was sniffing like 1,5 hours in the Skins store.. and resulted into Ulrich Lang - Anvers 2.. I've tried all those "classic" scents that come by here.. Creed GIT.. Black Oud.. name them.. though, In my opinion those are for the older men.. 30+.. Though, I was amazed with the amount of niches they had.. Must he heaven, haha.

    Maybe I can write some more detailed stuff tomorrow!

    Ok, so here's a bit more detailled view about the skins I was yesterday. To be honest, there was like 80% of me wanting to Amsterdam to hunt some niche, and like 20% clothing stores I can't find any near me. Printed my route to the stores, but still.. a just 18 years old guy, all alone going to Amsterdam finding the one and only skins, haha, but it worked.. after 2 times asking where the "runstraat (runstreet)" is.. haha. So, I saw some pictures on the website, but it only got better when I walked into the store. With an amazing view in my eyes I walked right into the Diptyque and Frederic Malle on the right, while on the other side, there was a whole wall of Creed.. male and female.. What an awsome start that was, haha. Like a bit shy, I walked about.. and asked.. "How does it work if I'd want to test something?" Ah, just get those paper sticks and go on.. Haha cool, knew it. My first victim was the GIT and the MI by Creed.. though, didn't really knew what to expect.. but still not really my thing.. like I said, the older people, haha. Then, on the other side, I started sniffing some Frederic Malle's.. but it's more like I don't have the time to wait and analyse the top, heart and basenotes in a store.. but they smelled pretty good, though, the bottles are to simple for me, haha. Proceeding, the By Kylian, all their concepts looked amazing, as their prices.. starting at 175+ euros. Though, their bottles.. boxes, all top class in my eyes. I've seen Le Labo, Acqua di Parma.. let's say almost all.. Then I went to the SA asking for a fresh summer scent and we started.. (can't say all the names thoug).. but I ended up with his first spray in this quest. Ulrich Lang - Anvers 2.. Awsome, but too bad it's just an edT.. and 90 euros is allot for me, but it's my first Niche.. I also ended up having samples of Piver - Un Parfum d'Adventure.. Les Parfums de Rosine - Rose d'Homme.. a Floris Londen sampe.. Carthusia via Camerelle sample and an Annick Goutal - eau d'Hadrien sample. I definently will visit their shops more often!

    It's a common misconception that coffeeshops and prostitution are only legally available in Amsterdam. Both are legal and available in the whole of The Netherlands, of which Amsterdam is the capital and probably the only city in the country known to most foreigners.

    I became interested in soccer in 2005, and have been supporting current champions AZ ever since. They're the 'little brother' of Ajax and with just 2 championships under their belt (1980 and 2008) this club is scorned at by the [s]gloryhunters[/s] 'supporters' of Ajax.

    I am aware of that, I meant AZ to hire Koeman, an ex-Ajax star as current manager. Louis van Gaal was an ex-AZ player to begin with, but I get your point

    OT: 'What cologne would an Ajax-supporter wear'
    Not sure, but I am inclined to reckon they smell good
