Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker


"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford


Mémoire de Mustique by Eight & Bob

Mémoires de Mustique, the new fragrance from cult brand Eight & Bob is inspired by memories of the crystalline waters, breathtaking sunsets and timeless landscapes of Mustique, a small private island that is part of St Vincent and the Grenadines in the West Indies. The fragrance is a tribute to all those who have shared in the magic of this Caribbean paradise, including brand creator Albert Fouquet.
One night, during a summer vacation on the Côte d’Azur in Southern France, Monsieur Fouquet met a young student who was touring in his beautiful convertible. The student was none other than John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was captivated by Albert’s fragrance and while the parfumeur had thus far been reluctant to market his scent he was so charmed by the young American that he left a sample of his cologne at JFK’s hotel with the immortal words : "In this bottle, you will find the dash of French glamour that your American personality lacks".
Albert Fouquet created this fragrance as a souvenir of the small island known for its wild nature, white sandy beaches, and unreal sunsets. There are a core set of names whose influence created Mustique for what it is today : Colin Tennant, Oliver Messel, Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth II... David Bowie once owned an Indonesian-inspired multi-pavilion villa out there, which he left asserting that "the house was so tranquil and peaceful that he found it hard to get any work done".
Mémoires de Mustique contains a fresh and sparkling blend of bergamot, petit grain and neroli in its top notes; orange blossom, jasmine sambac, and sweet, honeyed aromas of osmanthus in the lush flowery middle; plus amber, precious wood and white musk in the subtle and creamy base. Bon voyage !
