Congrats Matt. Your effort to get there by reading more Alexis Wright deserves bonus points.
Today I'm wearing Armani Code. I'm pretty sure this is the first designer scent that I ever bought, and I still wheel it out occasionally for old times' sake.

Apart from that, bugger-all happens in almost 400 pp apart from a great deal...
