Have been listening to the new badbadnotgood album IV, love this track:
Mendittorosa le mat today. Heady mix of rose / chamomile up top, then immortelle (but softer than say eau noire or sables) and patchouli. Lovely stuff.
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
Bought a Blackmeans double rider in sheepskin from ssense, one of my best purchases ever. Leather smells and feels amazing, jacket fits beautifully (size up, I'm 177cm, 75 kg; bought a large)

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.

Scant information about them online, in English at least. Seems to be run by Japanese obsessives, can't be a bad thing!
^ I'd only decided about a week ago that I wanted one ha. Bought this Blackmeans from ssense:
