    • Lol Lucas! The name is from a famous quote of his. But yes he is lucky. I would imagine that one day he will be reviewing your creations. In the meantime we have your bottle, his bottle and about 1330 actual bottles P.A. to enjoy (or not).

        • Sting! Sending out an SOS. Luca has sent out a few SOS’s about the state of perfumery or more specifically the perfume industry. I think perfume is a message in a bottle.
