I think there’s a mistake in this article – the author references Lampblack (one of my favorites) – but says its by Hans Hendley. I don’t think there are two fragrances named Lampblack.

I have a feeling the rent at AS (or anywhere in that area) is too high for that kind of specialization? But what I know about retail is just about nothing
