If you stroll down my blog, you will find an earlier post on Carner Barcelona. ByKilian is near and dear to my heart, so my fingers are crossed for Amber Oud to bring home the win for the team.

Perfume and Paris

Count down to May 17! Until then, I live vicariously through my friend who is walking the Parisian streets at this very moment. She was kind enough to take this flick and post it to my FB with a caption, "Kim, took this for you." Very dope!!!! Getting more excited by the day. I actually visited the Fragonard Perfume house in Nice on my last trip in 2011(second picture) but totally looking forward to checking out the Paris location.

Oleg Cassini Crystal Perfume bottle

While browsing the racks at Loehmann's in Paramus NJ recently, I came across this beautiful Oleg Cassini crystal perfume bottle for a mere $19.00! It reminded me of Lalique crystal, quality and unique only less expensive. I filled the inside with ByKilian Love, Don't be Shy perfume and placed it on my dresser. It's a little fancy, but fancy can be good at times!

Handsome Actor, Lance Gross, stops by Kilian counter at Saks

I had the opportunity to meet and take this picture of actor, Lance Gross, when he stopped by to pick up a refill of Kilian's Back to Black "Aphrodisiac" perfume on New Years Eve. The handsome and approachable actor, was very patient as he waited for my colleague Sandra to refill his empty bottle. Not only did he look good, but his style was smooth and sexy as well. Dressed in all black everything, reminiscent of a Kanye West look, the Tyler Perry House of Payne star, topped off his attire with a killer coat, an impeccable smile, and Kilian's Back to Black Aphrodisiac.
