It makes you feel important! 3. Lucky Scent 4. Straight to Heaven, by By Kilian. You ever wonder about that? Whether you should say "by By Kilian" or just "By Kilian"? If you have, you're probably doing pretty well so far ;) 5. Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles....I was thinking of adding an "SL" in front of FeA, but that would have been too easy.
