I think the poet is the last person who is still speaking the truth when no one else dares to. I think the poet is the first person to begin the shaping and visioning of the new forms and the new consciousness when no one else has begun to sense it; I think these are two of the most essential human functions.

34 Bohemian Cafes is a jaunt into the cover of the coffeehouses and subterranean clubs, an experience of the spatial affection of bebop and the enlightenment of poetry. You are at once observer and participant from the shelter of your seat in the cafe with an open invitation to the stage.

Bohemian body heat warms the room around you while conversation and the rhythms of jazz fluctuate about your consciousness. Write poetry, play a long game of chess, smoke and talk until the late hours of early morning; if this joint closes you don’t have to go home.

Thin Wild Mercury is a fine fragrance line that draws from the many vibrant cultural eras of Los Angeles and New York, eliciting at once the factually historical and the purely fantastical.  In a 1978 interview, Bob Dylan described his 1966 seminal album Blonde on Blonde as having "...that thin, that wild mercury sound." While Dylan found the inspiration for this spirited description of his work through his band's lively, uninhibited performances of it at the time, ours is rooted in the illustrious history of the famous coastal cities; their renowned neighborhoods and hangouts and the nowadays fabled eras of their 20th century lifespan – told aromatically.

Thin Wild Mercury has a simple, traditional ethos of the masters: do it yourself. TWM's fragrances are like nuanced stories redolent of particular places and times of the past eloquently told by musings from the present. The result is something like a state of mind for the senses – for anywhere, anytime.
