    Default one lucky find today

    I spent the afternoon hitting several recycle shops (part of a chain here in Japan) looking for unusual colognes. Didn't have much luck at that today, but did find this nice unused Mikimoto atomizer for 1300 yen ($17). I couldn't give my money to the clerk fast enough.

    That is the problem MonkeyBars. What do I put in it? It seems far too nice for the fairly ordinary stuff I'm wearing. On my wish list at the moment is Killian's Back to Black, perhaps I will hold out for that. Though I'm open to suggestions

    quite nice, indeed ... hold off for the Kilian ... a special atomizer deserves a special fragrance ...

    Argh, watch out with plastic atomizers. I've never encountered one that didn't change the scent of the fragrance in time (surely from the perfume oils leaching various chemicals out of the plastic). Certain plastics seem better than others and don't cause a change as quickly (the Sephora ones are better than the AccessoriesForFragrances 5ml plastic ones, for instance) but in time they all do.

    I feel bad for people who get into splits or whatever and receive their decant in a plastic atomizer.

    Check for tightness first - from my experience 1 of 5 will leak. Btw: I don't find Buy Killian all that special besides the insolent price tag. In general I don't trust 'houses' with scented candles in stock, but I'm a guy, You know.

    Some smaller, cylindrical atomisers can fit nicely into a cigar case. Perfume an cigars in one convenient place.
