Thanks for the recommendations, all.

Sort of depends on the origin/nature of the odor without getting too gross. The above method is my go-to for cigarette smoke / food odors (provided not coming from grease or spills directly onto the clothing).

Will give this a try. By, "some," do you mean just a handful will do?

I go for a half cup or so? Baking soda should work too. Just be careful not to get whatever you use on your clothing.

ETA: these are awesome and are probably much better made than any fashion equivalent inc DH.

You should check out the Le Labo store next time you're in the city. Or just the Le Labo counter at Barneys.

Been wearing a lot of Santal 33 and Bergamote 22 lately.

yeah dudes with hand tats are more likely to wear EG than Drie$, as well, because of employment discrimination

Today, I cooked a Styleforum-inspired dinner for him.  I have introduced him to Styleforum, and some of the members here I admire...I will post about his observations about these members in due course...

 

It was partly in jest, but I tried to capture the essential of various STyleforum members into the meal.  Not just in the dishes, but also the ambiance in which they were consumed.

 

The dinner itself:

Soupe course

 

Soupe Fuuma-le-Grand

 

I am fascinated and disgusted in equal measures by this member, about whom I know almost nothing...but I tried to inspire a dish by him.

Soupe Fuuma-le-Grand was a simple dashi-based miso broth, in which I floated Perigord black truffles sauteed in butter, small morsels of hand-torn Brie de Meaux just starting to melt in, and cigarette butts put in for decoration.  Before serving, the soup is "smoked" in a home-kitchen smoker, with 2 packs of cigarettes lit and put into the smoker to give a cigarette aroma to the soupe. 

A simple base of Japanese austerity defiled with French pretentiousness...smothered to death in cigarettes...

 

Meat course

 

Duck Synthese

 

I am a devotee of Synthese's cooking, as shown in his blog "devour and conquer" (or something like that, please excuse, I forget).

 

Simple Duck Legs, pan fried in duck fat....served with mirepoix vegatables (celery, onion, carrot) and garlic, fried in butter with lots of ground cannabis and white wine.

 

Served in an ambience where every carbohydrate in the room has been ritually thrown out beforehand....

 

 

Salad Course

 

Salad eStanley van Buren

 

A simple tossed salad of kale, moringa leaves and quinoa, dressed with fried bacon, fried eggs (2),  Served out of a giant mason jar. 

 

Dressing "Nahneun"

 

Hoisin Sauce, oyster sauce, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, ShaoXing cooking wine, and Sriracha sauce...all mixed together with dark sesame seed oil.  Use optional.

 

 

Dessert

 

Sweet inspired by KindofYoung

Strawberries, Lindenberries....dusted with icing sugar, served on top of giant bowl of whipped cream.  Elderflower cordial on the side.

 

 

Digestif

Chai Shahi:

 

A feroriously savage assault of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, mace and saffron...all steeped into darkest Ceylon tea...thickened with whipping cream and a giant dollop of clotted cream iceberg floating on top, dusted with ground pistachio and served while breathing frankinsense burned on the side...

 

 

 

Sounds like a nice meal.  How would you feel about a pair of custom-designed Viberg boots that were inspired by you?  Something with Italian leather to represent the wife you seem to have forgotten about, made in Canada of course like your new lover, and sold two pairs at a time to symbolize your twin boys.

I can't even sell them because they're such a tiny size😭😭😭

I'm now having to try to sell my £2,500 Burberry navy coat as its a mix of cashmere and wool, so I can't wear it, will have to get my cashmere lined leather trenchcoat (bespoke in 2008) tailored to fit me, or just wear my shearling jacket and thermals under my jeans😥

Btw I don't seem to react to cashmere, cotton, or silk, but my 2 navy cashmere sweaters have some wool in them- I wish I'd bought 100% cashmere....more money wasted..I didn't even wear them, I'll just let them hang in my closet..
