Favourite shopping destination?
There is no particular destination from where I can shop from.
Clothes you are comfortable in?
I am most comfortable in a pair of classic straight fit blue denims and a white cotton/linen shirt not tucked in with brown leather shoes.
I like anything that is a mix of wood and citrus with a dash of sweetness. I often find myself using fragrances like Narciso Rodriguez, Guerlain, Jpg, Aaqua di gio and Polo blue.
