Old stock and the dollar’s decline, probably.
Champaca Absolute. I wore this on a Sunday so that nobody would notice that I had it on. It starts out like lolly-water, an instant ugh, but the florals drown that out pretty quickly. It’s still too sweet for my taste, though. Not a scent that we sun-bronzed Aussie blokes would wear (try to imagine Mad Max sporting it). No wonder it’s hard to find here.

@Foxhound, here’s a couple of pics of me in my Tellason. Hopefully I don’t look too ridiculous.
I thought about it, but I take shit selfies. I’ll give it a shot.
Today I’m trialling Jasmin Rouge. Hmm. I’m not certain about jasmine; I can’t think of a jasmine scent that I’d consider unisex, let alone masculine. I think this is bit more more girly than I like, although I don’t mind it as a scent.
Cafe Rose today. Fantastic stuff. End of report.
I liked How To Be Good. Very different for Hornby at the time. I also thought Fever Pitch was pretty good as a piece of sports writing, almost.
Thanks to Foxy for calling out the Tellason “lucky dip” sale a while ago. My parcel arrived this week - a sand-coloured bomber jacket. For a blind buy, it’s a perfect fit, shoulders, sleeve and chest are all spot-on. I wore it to work today, and a SA in Henry Bucks asked me where I got it.
I remember reading that one when it first came out, and liking it. It’s about the last Hornby book I read. Nothing of his has interested me since.
