Laurel is Monocle’s second collaborative scent produced by Comme des Garçons’ perfumer, Antoine Maisondieu. Taking hints from Lebanese fragrance gardens and their hand-crafted laurel soaps, Scent Two atomizes a fresh, clean scent that has warm laurel notes. Available now at Blends (Socal) and Monocle Shops worldwide.
The Regal Beagle Ale House in Mission Hills had just opened up and a few of us headed over for a few pints. The tap selection was pretty atypical for San Diego — where most ale houses lean towards a west coast IPA-dominated selection. Pretty refreshing though. Its good to see a beer list that most people can appreciate.
En route to the Casbah, we tried to catch the Heavy Hawaii set but managed to get there just as they played their last song. All Saints Day (Vivian Girls/Cat power) was on the last stop of their west coast tour and played a 5-song set that ended with a cover of New Order’s Age of Consent. Definitely excited for their upcoming 7″ on Art Fag Recordings.
