The Truth Hurts
I'm a typical Taurean in some ways. My unyeilding 'if it ain't broke' mentality often trickles into my beauty routines, in particular that of my perfume. For years and years I've been faithful to Calvin Klein's 'Truth' (ironically). Never once have I wavered from the distinctive citrus and bamboo top notes - until now. Truth is, I've got a new love. His name is Ron Robinson; but it would appear I'm not alone. Robinson, L.A. based perfumier of fragrance line Apothia, has managed to seduce the ranks of Hollywood with his West Coast inspired scents and now... he's hit Dublin. His three signature scents: IF, L and Velvet Rope have graced the shelves of Brown Thomas in both EDP and EDT varieties. If that's not enough, Mr. Robinson has provided aromatic candles that burn for 60 hours. "Ohhh, Mr. Robinson. Are you seducing me?"
