Hype Means Everything

Hot Stuff


Sometimes, I’m glad I can’t afford to buy myself a ride. ‘Cause if I did, I’d end up with this furious-looking Maserati Alfieri. Yes, I know, it is still a concept car. Never mind. Like I said at the beginning, I can’t afford that 4.7 liter V8 that pushes out 460 horsepower anyway. Keep calm and save some money.

With its aged gold and rich amber colour, the Lagavulin 16 year old is one of the classic single malts available over the counter today. You just can’t dislike the smoky finish reminiscent of a Johnnie Walker Blue Label or a Caol Ila Moch.  The peat and salty aromas are married to perfection and make a single sip a one-way trip to Islay in Scotland. The easiest way to get yourself a similar treat is to pay a visit to my favourite destination for online spirit shopping Alexander & James. I love how the bottle is packed and that the service is simply perfect. Plus the choice and variety of whiskies available on their website is something surrealist. Check for yourself!

Is there a better way to enjoy your fine spirit collection than in French crystal glasses by Saint-Louis? I’m an absolute fan of their tumblers, shots and other cups. You really got to touch a glass to appreciate how fine, precise and litterally cutting-edge the glasses are. If there’s any Old Fashion cocktail fan around here, I bet you wouldn’t mind a little Trianon or Caton or Manhattan!

On my way to the new JM Weston store the other day, I ran by this new boutique called Ex Nihilo. The tagline says “Ex Nihilo is an alternative Parisian perfume house that designs personalized luxury fragrances and promotes emerging creative talents.” Being rather annoyed by mainstream over-the-counter perfumes and other eaux de toilette, I welcome this original Parisian concept store and its obsession with French-Savoir Faire and the bespoke universe. Ex Nihilo will propose you a fully personalized fragrance experience through its newly opened Parisian store located 352, Rue Saint Honoré Paris.

aquabotix-hydroview-sport-remote-underwater-hd-video-camera-coverHydroView is a remote operated underwater vehicle with a high definition video camera and LED lights that employs motion control technology. Pretty awesome (unaffordable – see here) gadget I guess, but I must say I’d rather dive in with the liquid image diving mask to explore underwater relics and fish!
