    Paid a visit to the newly opened Santa Maria Novella Boutique at IFC and bought myself Pot-Pourri because ya gotta start somewhere, right?

    Will post photos of the shop over in the HK Thread next week. Tried Nostalgie on paper and a liberal couple of shots of Fieno which I like a lot. Forgot to grab some of the toothpaste - too much going on! This place is gonna be fun. Expensive fun.

    Pix of the shop:

    It's still October 1 here, and I'm continuing to work through my backlog of mini purchases from FeeBay. The day started with vintage Jolie Madame which lasted for only 4-5 hours. *SIGH* I then moved on to the EDP samples of Cartier's Le Baiser du Dragon and I couldn't WAIT for it to move along because the beginning is incredibly sulfurous to my nose! Apparently I have too many visions of fantastical dragons breathing in my head. And also, it's very apparent that I used way too much of the scent this first time!!!

    Please pardon my ignorance, but is Michel Roudnitska the inspiration for the composition of this scent? I have seen the names of various great 'noses' on the labels of Frederic Malle scents, and I wondered why. So now I get to ask!

    October is starting as sick as september ended.

    For the very first time I caved in to peer pressure and snatched a bottle of Pure Havane off french ebay.



    I recently smelled this for the first time at the Airport in riga. Wanted it.

    Passed on the 60 euros duty free price because I had seen them at German ebay go for ~ 40.
    Came home only to notice that a few jerks have started buying all and reselling for 200 buy now.
    Last auction I saw went for 90 €!!

    Now I only hope it reaches me as planned!

    Jaime, this looks lovely - I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. IMO, Yann Vasnier is on a roll and I can't get enough of his new releases.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Yesterday it came to my door in a blind buy impulse:


    A very nice leather experience...similar to John Varvatos but more aromatic and somehow sweeter. A real keeper. I just can't wait to give it a proper full wearing along with my brand new leather jacket.
