There IS a mention of a candle though So I finally had a chance to get to the big city again for an afternoon of decent perfume sniffing and managed to catch up on some recent and not so recent releases and take home a bunch of samples. Some brief impressions- Bottega Veneta – I can see why...

My ears pricked up and I was ready for the compliments as I told him it was the one and only Azuree ! ( I sprits us both on the way out) Well........ Apparently we were stinking out the whole place with our 'very strong' old fashioned fragrance, his words ! Good I said – it's the smell of...
