    Default I'm about to wear Muscs Koublai Khan to a restaurant

    It was not planned that way. I had bought stuff to cook for dinner tonight. But 11pm is rolling around, and we're not in the mood to cook. So we're heading out to our favorite seafood restaurant in spite of the fact that, only 15mins ago, I applied a generous amount of Muscs Koublai Khan.

    This will be my first public wearing of it.

    Leaving now. Wish me (or at least the other diners) luck.

    Btw, if anyone is into sea urchin, I'm about to eat these uni crostini with lardo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSg44AEkH-k

    They are my favorite thing on Earth.

    How did it go?

    At least you'll get seated right away...due to the fact that the restaurant will probably clear out immediately...

    You should try it with some rump roast.

    I see nothing peculiar about it. I mean you're in NY not Anytown, Nebraska.

    Everything was fine. No one ran out screaming. I feel emboldened now to wear MKK.

    MKK actually strikes me as a good companion to food.

    PS: on thursday, I wore MKK (one spritz per armpit) to "men without shirts drink free". Hard to interpret the results - I need to repeat the experiment. Or perhaps I should try again chlorinated pool + Le Labo iris body cream.

    I thought you didn't do chlorine notes. Only from actual chlorine?

    Brian:

    Yes, actual chlorine. This was a reference to an old post of mine where I had commented on the peculiar effect of putting Le Labo Iris cream after a long swim in a chicago pool, an effect that had been suggested also by perfumeshrine in a different context. Regrettably, the chemicals used in the DC pool I go to are different; I have experimented there (before entering the steamroom, no less), but the cream remains faithful to its rooty-iris origin.

    And what is that use?

    BTW. I often wear MKK publicly too. It's a cozy scent.

    Re Antaeus, citing LT: "it became the first gay masculine fragrance and several years had to pass before the guys learned to use less than half a bottle per day."

    Agree that MKK is cozy.

    Here we go for something extremely serious If you'll ever come to visit Italy I'll take you guys to Colonnata which is the homeland of Lardo (40km from my hometown). Keep your cholesterol under control in the meantime...

    I wear it often and no one ever complained about it. It's just a great scent!

    By the way Lardo di Colonnata is fantastic!

    Colonnata happens to be 3 or 4 miles from where my parents live. But one doesn't have to go up to the mountains to get the lardo, it's available in the stores in town. That said, it's best eaten in (very big) moderation.

    Of course, just like you don't necessarely have to go to India to eat a good chicken tikka masala but, if you have the opportunity....

    A visit to the Fantiscritti cave (breathtaking) and then a stop at Colonnata for some Lardo

    Glad to hear all was fine Brian Chambers. MKK's a bit funny in that the sillage is quite clean and different to the extreme close up smell - at least that's been my experience.

    I'd do it but our pool is non-chlorinated.
