5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless cologne, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cologne seems to have gone full circle in turns of taste and popularity. I remember using it many years ago when it was one of my favourites. Finding it again has been a joy (and at such a great price). Ironically, it now feels very up to date. With its fresh, citrus and woody smells, it is reminiscent of several expensive, and contemporary, Eau de Colognes.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring book, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't understand how some have criticised the photography; it is of a consistently high standard and some of the shots, especially those taken in atmospheric lighting conditions, are very lovely.
Most importantly, the contents are fascinating, and a great source of ideas for those embarking on garden design. Its division into various categories, such as division of space; boundaries; water features etc., makes it a joy to use, and each category is explored comprehensively with examples taken from all over the world.
Many of the garden design books I have bought have quickly found their way to the charity shop. This one will undoubtedly remain on my shelves and, more importantly, will often be used as a valuable trigger to my gardener's imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic performance, 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi: Requiem (Audio CD)
With Harteros and Kaufmann amongst a stellar cast of soloists, and a chorus singing, in it's native tongue, music by a composer that is in its blood, this recording is one of the most exciting, moving and 'operatic' recordings of the requiem that I've heard. I'd never have put Barenboim down as a Verdian but it is a most impressive performance that is well worth hearing / owning, and the recording is atmospheric and dynamic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice looking pouch that holds the phone securely (one can hold it upside-down and it doesn't fall out!), and the pull-tag releases it smoothly from the case. It seems well made, and durable, and I am pleased with the purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Emperor's new clothes?, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been taking three a day for the last three months. Maybe it is too early - I can always live in hope - but they seem to have made no difference whatsoever to mild, wear-and-tear, knee pain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair value for money, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ideally I would have liked the bowl to have been a bit thicker, as it feels a little insubstantial. However, I will only be using it infrequently (to make macarons) and it does the job well enough, and at a reasonable price.

This book covers the subject from all angles and, as someone trying to find a literary agent, I found it very useful.

Clear dial, can be suspended from rack or stood on shelf, and has performed well so far. It seems good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of the cinema, 14 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone even vaguely interested in the history of the cinema should see this film. Einstein's use of the camera - a stunning sense of composition and viewpoint - has never been bettered. This edition has a sensitively chosen soundtrack of music by Shostakovich, and it works effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good balance of familiar and unfamiliar, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MOVE CLOSER (Audio CD)
A very enjoyable compilation that includes some less familiar tracks alongside the classics. Recording quality is good and the running time is generous. Well worth purchasing.
