White-topped EdT?Mediocre it is. Same with Gardenia. Strong, fruity florals very contemporary in flavor. Not bad if you like that (and it's cheap), but not worth the extra $$$. In the long run, worth it just to tell yourself you tried it... but like a lot of those rare OOP juices... not really worth the effort. Just stick with what you like.
^Probably not much, alas. Ferre was a niche brand even at the best of times, and aside from a very few classic items and collections, they don't fetch anything at resale. AW06 and SS07, tagged "Homme Couture," were wonderfully constructed and some like to collect it... but again not much. The Ferre item you mention may not be from Gianfranco Ferre; he had no presence in ROMA, AFAIK. He was centered in Milan, and his items typically said "Ferre Milano." And all the...
Haven't worn Diorella for a few months and gave it a spin today. Couldn't stop sniffing. It's wonderful to enjoy something superlative and still be surprised by how wonderful it is. If you like Eau Sauvage, I think you'd love it. It has less of the pissy hay note and more rich fruit, but still that wonderful crisp funk. Longevity is also much better (alas, Eau Sauvage and its older cousin Eau Fraiche disappear on me pretty fast).
Great find! You should open it and wear it (as, sadly, it's not particularly rare or ultra-valuable). BUT still too nice to sit in the box. I had one of those stopper-top EdTs back a few years ago. Nice stuff, and good longevity for an EdT.Costume National SCENT for me today; I forgot I had this one. Always like it. All the versions (intense, sheer, etc.) are nice, but the original has a lovely amber/floral accord that is quite charming. Totally Unisex (though INTENSE...
Diorling for me today. Another classic in the line of badly named, gorgeous Dior scents (Diorama, Dioressence, Diorella, Diorissimo, Dior Dior). This one is not by Roudnitska, but is a nice leather chypre that sits well beside the smutty Miss Dior (the original one, not the Nat Portman abomination). Happy that many are trying these new niche scents, but don't forget the oldies. To do so would be like reading Jonathan Franzen before dipping into Tolstoy. I've said it...
They do that sometimes. Like the transmission on an old Ford, they sometimes refuse to catch second gear.
I wanted up update this thread with a review of a pair of shoes I received from AZZURAA. I've had a chance to wear them for a week or two and wanted to respond about the product and the process. Style: "Pinus" Oxford punched cap toe shoes Size: Bespoke Color: Cinnamon calf exterior; black kid lining Price: $429 Website: http://www.azzuraa.com/ Executive summary: Worth it? YES. Especially for those who have non-standard sized feet or substantial differences between...
Brand: TRUSSARDI 1911 by Milan Vukmirovic Season: A/W 2010 Bag: Camouflage Shopper Tote in coated canvas/suede with canvas lining Retail: $1500 Condition: GOOD Measurements: 17X15X5 Selling my Trussardi men's camo shopper tote. The "classic" tote from the Vukmirovic tenure that was featured in multiple seasons from 2008-2012. I love it but just don't use it anymore and have too many other totes in the closet. In good shape, shows only basic wear from use but nothing...

My folks had a Datsun just after they got married as their first car. Yes, one would never imagine based on that experience that they were the same company today making cars people are really EXCITED to buy. Overall, I think the story of the Japanese automakers is one of the most fascinating in business. It's pretty old by now, but Halberstam's "The Reckoning" is a pretty neat read (about Ford and Nissan in the late...
