Melbourne is a beautiful long dinner party in someone’s over interior designed home, drinking local Victorian wine, eating local food; a night of engaging conversation and by the end of the evening you are life-long friends. Whereas Sydney is the best night of your life. You go to three different bars and restaurants, you meet hundreds of people and have about five minute conversations with most of them. You barely eat, but you drink cheap champagne and at the end of the night you’ve met no-one. But that’s what makes it fun. That’s what people come here for. Eastern suburbs: Paddington – Bondi.


The scent does not linger. It’s not powerful or impactful. It’s upfront and there are no layers to it. You can’t contain it, you can’t hold it. Cheap moisturiser and jasmine.
