Overseas atm and had to vote at the embassy; wore 'afternoon of a faun' by ELDO for the polished wooden floor smell that would have been in the air had I voted in some church hall back home. Yes I was thinking this as I applied it.
So I picked up a new bottle of sycomore, and it's considerably darker in colour than my previous bottle. Reformulated? Fake?? I tried spraying one on each arm; but unfortunately I have a cold at the moment so my sense of smell is greatly diminished
Edit: don't think it's fake; has the magnetized cap + a spray on the wrist lasted overnight. We'll see how it compares to the old bottle once this cold has passed
IIRC just off blvd saint germain on rue de l'ecole de medecin there's 'patisserie viennoise', ignore the two ogresses that work there, the gingerbread is the best i've ever had. Dense enough to stop a bullet. The 'cornes' (horns) with poppyseed (pavot) or walnut filling are also amazing. But have the gingerbread.
I'll look into those options, thanks. I hadn't really done any research, decided I wanted a perfecto and that margiela was one of the first I saw. Don't want/need super thick leather as I'm in Sydney and it's too hot most of the time (also, don't own a bike lol)
