Hype Means Everything

ex-nihilo-perfume-house-paris-3

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.

asics-onitsuka-tiger-1

On a very a cold day a few weeks ago, I had a lot of fun doing this modest shooting for well know sneaker brand Onitsuka Tiger. Despite the freezing wind, I was pretty happy to exchange my worn-out loafers for a fresh pair of bouncy sneakers and pose, walk, run, jump and sometimes seat to feature those burgundy Shaw Runner. After the shoot was over, I kept the sneakers on until I had to go to bed. Soles don’t lie! So comfy and pretty good looking! I guess my Reeboks and Nikes and Vans have to be worried for they’re going to spend a lot more time piled up in my closet…

Just when my Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille is running low, I realise there’s a new baby in the Tom Ford Private Blend collection. Tobacco Oud is Tom Ford’s latest take on a masculine eau de parfum with dirty, ashy, smoky scents. Although I’d have a hard time dismissing my current Tobacco Vanille, I love how frank and however pretty unclear this scent is. I couldn’t put it better than a US guy who reviewed the scent: “Masculine as heck, like I just hid some freshly wrapped cigars in my well-worn flannel shirt after toasting a visiting neighbor with some well-hidden stash of whisky in my garage (don’t tell the wife) after chopping some wood for my fireplace.” Or put it funnier than this… passionate Youtuber:
