Not the right season for it, but needed a Roudnitska pick-me-up on a cold, rainy day. Dior Eau Fraiche : not as well known as others, this one preceded (and was the first draft for) Eau Sauvage and Diorella. The difference is in the DNA and the effect; Eau Sauvage has a warm, spicy citrus with a funky note and Diorella has that famous Roudnitska rotting fruity note. This one keeps all the usual citrus but settles less into woods or funk than a neat, soft aldehydic...
Oh, ok. Sacrilege! You are banished from my thread. (haha j/k)
Forgot that I'd even posted in this thread, but was interested to see that my list more or less has stayed the same.In the interim since posting, I've come to appreciate the (nonfiction) work of Vollmann and David Foster Wallace, who showed up here on several lists. George Orwell's essays (published together in four volumes still readily available) also can't be beat; those of us hit over the head with ANIMAL FARM and 1984 in high school should try to forget and check out...
Agree with the above; Balenciaga is usually a good bet and they've been fair on pricing. Star/asterisk/qualification to that remark...I'd avoid Givenchy; I have no idea how they get those prices for made in china (or Romania, Bulgaria, etc.) stuff. I liked the old Boateng days, but I was one of the very few. Tisci gets a lot of hype... but I find it unwearable and costumey, not to mention the pricing and quality.What is SLP? It's been a long day, so maybe my brain is...
Yep. I've had n19 in virtually every incarnation since it came out, from cologne to soap... and that old 70's juice is a dark funky green weird leather chypre with stink attached in a resiny form. Sound strange? It was! The biggest differences I find in various formulations and vintages is that some parfum/extrait smells more like a dark leather scent and others more like a green chypre. All are neat, but some have a slightly darker feel while others have a more...
oops; edit. A little late to the party (I was off on my dates for the Linjer bag) haha Anyway, whoever won the Linjer bag got a good one. And all for a good cause.
Great holiday gift for your significant other. Etro Autumn/Winter 2005 runway suede boston bag. Geometric suede pattern with purple croc-print trim. Purple lining. In excellent used condition. Made in Italy. Retail was 1180 euros, or about $1300. A rare seasonal item no longer in production. Measure 17X10X9. GREAT bag and makes a perfect holiday gift. PRICE: SOLD PENDING PAYMENT
The leather samples as pictured above your post.For a minute, I was taken back to the 1980's when all the "cool kids" wanted a Swatch Watch. Different animal entirely.
We've talked about Vurr-sayce before (haha "Showgirls" reference); several of us have (or have had) Versace pieces. Members @designervalet and especially @spoopoker know it very well, too... and I hope they will see it and chime in.IMHO, the trouble with Versace mainline is not quality, alas; the mainline bags are usually built like tanks and will probably last forever. Unfortunately, the styling sometimes borders on the garish/hideous... or changes in style so rapidly...
Anybody have any Jil Sander no. 4? Not too many years ago, this was an easy one to find cheaply, but now it's off the market. It's my (elderly) mother's favorite, and I'd like to get her some for the holidays. I'll either trade some from my wine cooler of exquisites, or just send you cash. (haha) Tiffany PH for me today.
