Yesterday I decided to spray myself with something called Bentley for Men. I figure I can’t afford the car, but I can rock the perfume. Today I am wearing the discontinued Richard James Savile Row. I got hold of a pretty full bottle of this on a local version of Craig’s List called Gumtree, which was a stroke of luck. I like this one for the autumn, with the leather and tobacco discreet rather than dominant, and some florals and bergamot to make it feel a little sunnier....

Same thing.
You and I are definitely working off the same reading list, although you are much further down it.
My father wanted nothing more than to forget all about it. He never spoke a word about his military service and he never introduced any of his war buddies to us, not even to my mother. She met them at his funeral.Truly a lot of tosh gets talked about ANZAC Day and the one lesson we ALWAYS seem to forget is never to do it again.
Wearing Cuir Ottoman today. Perhaps an insensitive choice, given that today is ANZAC Day, the day that we commemorate Australian war dead in an attack on the Ottoman Empire. Oh well.
