Brecourt Esprit Mondain today. Unspectacular. Just like every other-run-of-the-mill lemon and lavender cologne out there.
Who says I work? Work is for losers and minions - I just get paid.
First of all, welcome, and congrats on your upcoming wedding.From what you mention, it seems that your budget is around $600-700. If it's more, let us know, as that would open up your options quite a bit.
