    Wonderful shots and such marvelous & imaginative scent associations!

  3. Lovely photographs (instagram?) and I liked the accompanying fragrant pairings. And now, the peacock matched with the dandy? 😉

    I love that Eucalyptus Tree, and today I tried Carnal Flower for the first time. Not quite right for me – perhaps it’ll grow on me. Hope you’ll do a review of it some time. Lovely photos as always Sir Dandy!
