Italy is a country of contradictions. But then, everything and everyone who is even remotely interesting to me is a mix of old and new, good and bad, mild and passionate -- with every nuance of feelings and experiences in between.

I think hidden within the soul of this cultural blogger, inside the heart of a devoted cinema writer, there has been a fragrance lover hiding all along.

As the first outfit from Ivory Coast's Dent de Man came out, I felt goosebumps, wowed by its beauty and style.

Everywhere I look in Florence, it seems that no self-respecting fashionist-o is going out without some tartan. The colors aren't the traditional Scottish blues, greens or reds and some may even be tempted to call it tweed, but I insist it's a new kind of tartan.
