I think it's a great book, very informative and well written. I didn't know the trade in ambergris is shrouded in secrecy. Weird stuff, the book makes me wanna smell real ambergris... To smell for myself what it's all about.
Does anybody know if someone ever found ambergris on the Dutch coast?

So this one in Dutch, I figured reading it in English would be too much of a challenge and I'd miss out on its beautiful prose.
Got a nice little perfume deal today. I found a tiny 15ml bottle of Tommy Girl in a department store today. Thought it would make a nice little gift for my wife. No special occasion, just because I love her. I like Tommy Girl very much, it reminds me a bit of Dior's Escale á Pondichéry. We both like Pondichéry. At the cash register the barcode of the bottle couldn't be recognised. It turned out to be a not for individual sale bottle that shouldn't be on a shelf. The sales lady cut me a nice deal: buy a larger 30ml bottle and receive the 15ml bottle for free. No-brainer.

Disappointing track: Michael Jackson's I'll be there. His music didn't float my boat and I doubt it ever will.
