SOTD is MFK Lumiere Noire. Kurkdjian may be my favorite perfumer. Everything he has made (including the scents for other companies) is beautifully constructed. The only criticism to be made of him is that his scents may be a little too perfect if you're looking for something edgy.
I imagine that most of them look like Pigpen from the Peanuts comic strip, followed around by their private scent storm.

Two other random thoughts: 1. As great as Kobe Bryant was, he wasn't the greatest player of his generation. Tim Duncan was. Consider this amazing fact: Aside from the lockout-shortened 1998-99 season, no Spurs team with Duncan has ever won fewer than 50 games in a season. 2. If the Warriors don't win the title, they're not the 1996 Bulls. They're not even the 1994-95 Rockets. Which come to think of it, would give the Warriors a fascinating seven-game series. The...
Thinking of visiting NYC this weekend. Do any stores besides Bloomies and Gentry carry Eidos? Maybe Saks?
