What would Matthew McConaughey do?

Talking about forced confinement it rings the bell of Interstellar when Cooper said:

"Oh we are not prepared for this. We have the survival skills of a Boy Scout troop! "

I am a huge fan of Matthew McConaughey from Contact to Interstellar. I bought last week the Carhartt weathered Detroit jacket. See [below] the fantastic resemblance. Kids are always kidding me here when I ask them a question they respond ironically "What would Matthew McConaughey do?"

"I am ok to go" would have said Jodi Foster a.k.a Professor Arroway in Contact, so am I ;-)

Robert Altman 1994

David Lynch 1984

"I am still hoping being the
chosen one as there is another sky walker somewhere said Yoda, so it could be me, but in the meantime I carefully follow my wife’s instructions when lost in the supermarket."

Hope all is fine for you and your family!

Fantastic list of movies, and a good amount of the ones you picked are easily my favourites. Would be awesome to have a scent inspired by Laurence of Arabia.

Thank you for making the world a more beautiful and attractive place. Madrid, Chueca, summer of 2016. Partner and I were having breakfast and a rugged Spaniard passes by and his scent captivated our attention. I had to ask him what was he wearing. He replied RIEN by Etat Libre d’Orange. Rien hasn’t stopped from proving it is a dangerous perfume. From that day we have been incrementing our ELDO collection. Thank you again.


I love your movie recommendations and your perfumes!!! The fragances have comforted me through these trying times. Thank you and stay well.
