Do you know what I have been thinking?

A phrase which has been known to strike fear in the hearts of the most stalwart of men. And how I always preface a new scheme for some change or other. Schemes which would either test the patience of Job or gamble our last farthing. Usually, it's both. Luckily this time, aside from we need to move that wall, change those doors, I want a showroom, etc., it's nothing drastic.

I have been thinking that there is something missing. In my quest for a new scent it struck me that it is richness that is missing. Not splendour, that is too superficial, but richness, like that found in old scents. That deep shading of tone that is an amalgam of different layers. Layers that are not necessarily analogous.

Life should be lived in an excessive regal way, not in a comfortable bourgeois way.

How true, how true.
It is, after all, too short to live otherwise.

I agree! As long as I can have comfort in the excessive regal-ness. ;)
