For my birthday, I got a Bond No. 9 Perfume Gift Card. With the card, arrived about two dozen samples, all wrapped up like cute little bon-bons. I’ve already tried about half of them and, so far, my favorite has been Cooper Square, with its woodsy, lavender-like scent.
My husband recently went to Berlin and brought back these heavenly chocolates from a company called Leysieffer. I never cared much for marzipan fillings when I was younger but love them now so much that I was looking for the other marzipan piece in this tin as soon as I found the first one.
My friends Eliza and Dina came over for brunch and brought sweets with them, including these ridiculously luscious donuts from Brooklyn’s Dough. They take donuts to whole other levels here with flavors like blood orange, passionfruit and hibiscus.
