Coromandel today. I think that some of you may be aware of this fragrance.
[[SPOILER]] 41. The Holiday MurdersThe Holiday Murders by Robert GottMy rating: 3 of 5 starsI wasn't entirely sure what to expect from a detective story written by a cartoonist, especially the creator of the rather quaint Naked Man cartoons. I guess I expected something frothy and a bit risqué, like the Phryne Fisher books. I did not expect this; a rather gruesome story set in wartime Melbourne, with a psychopathic Nazi at its core.Inspector Titus Lambert heads up the...
[[SPOILER]] 40. Golden BoysGolden Boys by Sonya HartnettMy rating: 4 of 5 starsSonya Hartnett has authored many children's books that have a somewhat dark twist to them, so it's little surprise that her adult fiction tends the same way.Golden Boys is about a group of young children knocking about a typical Australian working-class suburb.

Vintage Kinze Ten today.

Of the Byredo range, Sunday Cologne is my favourite. Not wearing any scent today; no point with a head cold like the one I have.
Something very different today: Ciro Danger. This is long discontinued, so I'm quite lucky to have a 10ml decant. This is a spicy oriental, bit ambery, really, really nice.
Not necessarily - a good tailor should be listened to. Ask him what his reservations are. I’d also take a hyper-critical look at the suit, any signs of wear, shine, bubbles, holes etc. You want to look your best. If it passes muster as suitable for a wedding then you might go ahead.
