Creed Green Irish Tweed – The best men’s fragrance in the World

I researched the fundamental question: What is the BEST men’s fragrance in the World? I got this fragrance recently, after having my eye on it for 2 years! (Saving up). Its pretty good – its PERFECT actually. Its the real deal, its high luxury, its sophistication, its superlative. Creed has pedigree they have been around since the 1700’s and literally Europe’s royalty would wear Creed since hundreds of years ago. Hollywood leading men wear this at the red carpet events. This whole thing falls into the category of things such as whats the difference between a $19 bottle of sparkling white wine and a $95 bottle of French Champagne. Often there’s no difference in my experience. However in the case of Creed Green Irish Tweed, it is a great deal better than most every other fragrance, subjectively by smell and objectively by things like manufacture process and ingredients used. It cost me $379 from David Jones in Australia for the 3.3 oz bottle. You can also get it from Amazon for a bit less.

Roald Dahl – Going Solo – A book about WW2 air combat.

Going Solo – Roald Dahl’s WW2 air combat experience

The above is a BBC audio book and Audio CD formats approximately 3 hours long, covering both ‘Boy’ and ‘Going Solo’.

The above is a Kindle version of ‘Going Solo’. If you have a Kindle reader, or if you have the App on your device, you can read Going Solo in Kindle format.

The above is a Mass market paperback version of BOTH books combined. It (The physical format at least) also has the Quentin Blake cover illustration. I believe he was Dahl’s preferred illustrator. The link above gives options for paperback, audio cd and kindle… Take your pick. lol. I reckon paperback is probably the best option, if you just want the book to read in an affordable and trouble free format. I dont think you could go wrong with either the new or used copies available from Amazon. At least it’s something tangible you can hold in your hand. The Audio CD or the Kindle would also be useful if you are certain you have the required equipment to play/read them.
