Sunday Firesides: Care, But Don’t Care

“I want to be liked. I want to be loved. I want to be recognized. I want to be a success. I want to win. I want a happy resolution.” “It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of me.

Tom Ford Bitter Peach – for the Dude!

  I was reading Eddie's Sour Bark With No Bite reivew of Bitter Peach Tom Ford, simultaneously smelling the perfume from my wrist, and couldn't agree more. It was a very poor interpretation of a fruit, even an unripe one. At the same time, I couldn't believe that Tom Ford could have made such a sluggish fruity fragrance.
