Stream it please! ;)


Sounds good thou, but i still believe that today's artists and creations are much creative than the eras back then, knowing that by comparing the vintage fragrances and today's creations.

I can't deny that most (if not all) of today's creations are completely inspired by those vintage eras as they do have that rich materials and aspects that translates those pictures and stories they hear about historical personas into liquids & blends that make minds goes back in time.


Fascinating! I hope to hear more about this, what an evening it will be!


What an incredible event! I so wish I could attend. I hope you'll give us a detailed report of the gathering.
