Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Today I'm wearing one that's quickly becoming a favorite of mine; Masque Milano Montecristo. I was never really a fan of musky fragrances until I crossed paths with Montecristo. The musk, woods, booziness and hints of tobacco provide a comfortable masculine blanket for me. I love it!
