There’s a lot of reasons to be upset with the uber-wealthy but I think one reason that most of us can agree on is that most of the uber-wealthy do very boring things with their money. I am sure that all of us have sat around, even those of us that only gamble by buying perfumes unsniffed, fantasizing about what we would do if we won the lottery. Once we get past the things that could make us very comfortable, we can fantasize about what we would do with the extra or what we’d… Continue reading | 2 Comments
Ormonde Jayne Tsarina is supposed to be the brand’s “opulent” fragrance, the brand itself describes it as a “powerhouse” with imagery of brocade, furs and jewels.

Zizan has all of the elements of a popular fragrances marketed to men but one could argue that… Continue reading
