5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and profound, 15 Aug. 2013

Why is it that a text like this one does not permanently feature on the top-selling charts around the world?
It is food for our soul. Its luminous teachings (please try and read his other works if you can) will hopefully touch the lives of many. Thank you dear Master.


Travalo Pure Essentials Refill Perfume Atomizer
Travalo Pure Essentials Refill Perfume Atomizer

5.0 out of 5 stars What a nifty little gadget!, 20 Nov. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Every girl who owns a perfume wardrobe will put this little gadget to good use! This will quite likely be for me the first of a long series... As a perfume addict, I own a number of different scents to suit any occasion, with Travalo I can just pop it in my purse and I am ready to go without dragging a heavy glass bottle with me. I will never be without!

BT Sonus 1500 Single Digital Cordless Phone with Answering Machine - Gun Metal /Silver

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 16 Nov. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Probably not the most technologically advanced device on the market, still if you are looking for a cordless that it is easy to operate and gives you a clear sound, this is it. It is easy to set up and the screen is straightforward to navigate, the built-in answerphone can be personalized. Maybe not for the gadget lover but certainly for anybody looking for a reliable, decent handset.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for perfume lovers!, 11 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Perfume Lover (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Difficult to tell what the author is trying to convey with this book. In a nutshell, we are faced with an extremely long-winded "dissertation" about various fragrance compounds and relative methods of extraction, interspersed with non-descriptive passages about the author's "risque" encounters and other stereotypical personal experiences. If you love perfumes or have an interest in perfume making you will not learn anything new, if on the other hand you are a perfume newbie, this book will not encourage you to learn any further. Sadly, just give this one a miss.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Jubilee celebrations!, 19 April 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is certainly worth its price for the amazing recipes it contains. Not sure about the whole "Retro" style paraphernalia it is packaged with. I would recommed it for foodies in general and anybody who can appreciate a lovely picture. As for the "Rule Britannia" vibe, it is not my cup of tea... it would probably make an excellent gift for someone who is into the Jubilee Party mood...

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great stuff..., 20 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you, like me, are trying to steer your life towards a more holistic/spiritual direction, this is a real find!
It is a goldmine of tried and tested hints and tips with a very useful directory of all the sources she refers to throughout the chapters plus recommended readings. I have just finished reading this book and frankly cannot wait to experiment with her recipes for a sensible, greener and happier life. It is important to start from somewhere and this is probably a pretty good starting point... Let this be your little book of reference!

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a "Hotch-Potch"...., 11 April 2011
This review is from: When God was a Rabbit (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quite disappointing, to be honest. If this is one of the promising literary stars of the British panorama, there is not much to celebrate... The style, apart from an excellent use of similitude, is fragmented and sterile. The plot just does not hang together. It feels as if the characters have all been thrown in for the sake of hyperbole to the detriment of real substance. Definitely not a classic. Unless you are a big news/drama consumer, just give it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating...., 13 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had the pleasure, a couple of years ago, to attend a conference within the perfumery industry, where Mr.Burr was one of the speakers. His intervention was sharp, concisive, knowledgeable and utterly spot-on. The same pleasure I have experienced in reading this book which literally draws you into a reality not every perfume lover may be aware of. A very interesting, intelligent snapshot of the current "scented" panorama. We will hopefully be reading more by the same author, of no-nonsense, able journalists we are in need!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 12 Dec. 2010

This review is from: I Miei Numeri (Audio CD)
He is really big in Italy and with reason... If you have not yet discovered Renato Zero, this is a great opportunity to listen to some of his really big tunes. Outstanding voice and smooth arrangements make for a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience. The beauty of the Italian language (lyrics are included), great sound and atmosphere. It is in a league of its own... Grazie Renato!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a lot of tosh!, 14 Sept. 2010
This review is from: One Day (Paperback)
This book was a waste of time and money. The fact that so-called novel experts dare to plaude it as a must-read from magazines and tabloids, just beggars belief... Unfortunately, I was naive enough to believe them! Just another boring, predictable, piece of chick-lit. Please do not bother.
