About This Series Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade bas...

Battle of the Nerolis: Neroli Portofino vs Cologne Indélébile

What is compelling about the comparison between Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino (2011) and Frédéric Malle’s Cologne Indélébile (2015) is that we are also implicitly duelling the historical stalwarts of perfumery’s past on which they’re based: 4711 (1729) and Acqua di Genova Classica (1853), respectively. These two vintage classics, as a unit, defined what “cologne” meant for well over...

Natürlich sind die Grundlagen in der Bezeichnung enthalten: Wenn du multiple Orgasmen hast, kommst du offensichtlich mehr als einmal. Wenn es aber um den Zeitpunkt geht, werden die Dinge kompliziert.
