A City On FireSold Out
Devante Valéreo was raised in a dusty Spanish village on the Balearic Sea. He fondly recalled going to the bullfights with his father, an ex-picador, and credited those early experiences with inspiring his most popular novella, Bull’s Blood. The book’s lurid tale of seduction garnered obscenity charges against the author. Though the charges were rejected by the court, a ban on the sale of his works persisted for a number of years.
A fixture in Barcelona, smoking cigarillos and writing in the cafés and bars into the night, Valéreo disappeared as a fugitive in 1967 after a highly publicized bar scuffle with American sailors, one of whom later died from his injuries. “A man who has killed,” he wrote in Bull’s Blood, “is a man who knows passion.”

I ordered a parfume I’ve been wanting to try for a while! They sent it right away, and everything was perfect!
“A City On Fir” is an interesting scent, a mix of burning and benzocaine! The benzocaine type scent dissipates with the dry down and your mostly left with a scent like you have been standing by a campfire for a good while.
I, personally, really like a different type of scent, one that might have someone say, ”something smells like a fire!” And I can reply, “it’s my scent!” I love that!!
I do wish it longer lasting though.
