Then there was the Ambassador Hotel--also long gone--it was okay and again close to my office. And Bikram taught yoga there (which I did regularly). It also had a great spa for facials and massages.

The heart of the fragrance plays on an exclusive contrast between the overabundant aquatic notes of cascalone® and the powdery accents of violet. The vibration is provided by spices, bourbon pepper and nutmeg, and galbanum.  The woody base notes mix essences of cedar, vetiver and patchouli that exude a warm masculinity.  The end result is a woody, floral and fresh fragrance packaged in a bottle shaped by the Mercedes-Benz brand
