"L'eau De Collecting Dust"




Still taking up space in the bathroom..

Now you're thinking "Oh, I LOVE Christopher Brosious fragrances!"

If you had read this blog from day one (which you haven't) you would know that the only perfume worth name-dropping is 'Velviona'.

2001 Helmut Lang decided using a synthetic macrocyclic musk-note by Givaudan as the only note to an entire fragrance was a good idea.
It was, believe me.
Only 500 bottles was ever made and sold at the (now long gone) H Lang perfume store on Greene St in NYC.
I still regret buying only one.
(At 250 USD for 15 ml it was a decision made by my wallet, not me)

Annick Goutal and Czech & Speake does very nice stuff as well.

My wife tells me I have a natural scent of cinnamon at the back of the neck.
I love her for that.

Off the wall

A vintage Dior scarf I got at an auction couple of years back.

No, I didn't frame it, it came that way.
But for someone who looks like a homeless person I'm in pretty close
contact with my feminine sides.

GANT by Michael Bastian

Since I'm a geek and have a huge thing for bromance, of course my pics
ended up more reflecting the ambiance than the clothes.

1917 IWC / Gimme!

1929 Omega

Want.
Can't.

3 685 bucks / Wtf

Seriously, you've got to be fucking kidding me.
Anyone prepared to shell out almost 4 g's for these?
Nay, I must not think thus..

Allthough, I must admit, it is a smokin pair of Chuck-a-roos.

"Putting my picture on the line to save harvards ass"




http://www.ivy-style.com/putting-my-ass-on-the-line-to-save-harvard.html

"While chatting with the founder and checking out the clothes in the trade show booth, I noticed a piece of marketing collateral sitting on the table. It was a montage of vintage images meant to give potential buyers the vibe of the collection. I recognized a number of images from Ivy-Style, then went back to chatting with the founder, when suddenly I did a double take because right next to Aga Khan is mymadras-clad posterior.

It’s true: Harvard is using my ass to sell clothing. I should be getting a cut off the back end. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD"

Now, I would like to draw your attention to the picture below Christian's ass, depicting a vintage Gant Shirtmaker label. I took that picture and it was later published on ACL.

It's a small world.

By the way

Hong Kong / Blown away.

Hong Kong.
Regardless of how many times you take the Star Ferry across the river,
the skyline and the IFC Tower still blows me away.
(As does the white truffle pizza at Isola)
