The nice profumo.it folks sent me a nice bottle of Sharif and some samples of it as well to give away to you guys. Yeah!!!!! So I have three generous samples and one 32 ml bottle to give away. Drop a comment to be entered into the drawing! It’s a great leather.
I read Tom’s nonreview about seeing The Help, and I went to see it Wednesday evening. I really liked the book, it was compulsively readable. The movie did a nice job of covering that territory, but I think this is one story that loses something in the translation just because what I liked about the book the most was the story-telling. It hooked early and drug me to the finish into the wee hours of the morning. The person that went with me hadn’t read the book, and he really liked the movie on its own. So I think the story holds up in both formats.
And with that, I’m off to put a heating pad on my back and some painkillers. Not sure how I strained it, but I did, and it is being incredibly loud and complainy since this afternoon!
I’m not that familiar with the profumo.it line, except that I know that the guy that owns/runs/composes for them is incredibly nice and generous, and I hear that from multiple sources. Leather scents aren’t really my thing most of the time, so what should I sample from this line? Favorites? Recommendations?
