Alternative Choice 1: Snow Crash is almost the apotheosis of the cyberpunk novel, the book that took the idea about as far as it could possibly go, then sent it spinning off in an entirely new direction. Set in our near future, and perhaps 100 years before The Diamond Age, this is a story of a computer virus that affects people, because the virus is language itself. This is 'early Stephenson' but of his his works, it's probably his most easily digestible, most action-packed and 'fun' to read. If you want to start reading Stephenson, this is a good book to start with. It's also a seminal work in the Cyberpunk genre.
After years and years and years I finally got around to sampling this iconic fragrance this afternoon and evening. In a nutshell, Back to Black is a gorgeous honey-tobacco fragrances and deserves all the fanfare; it's just a fine fragrance from start-to-finish.
Sadly--actually, not so sadly--I purchased a bottle of Man Made Sweet Tobacco Spirits in the Spring of 2016 and this much less expensive fragrance (one-quarter the price) smells just as great and performs just a swell as Back to Black. They're not quite identical, but they are very similar and I may actually prefer Sweet Tobacco Spirits.
Back to Black is truly an outstanding fragrance when it comes to the honey-tobacco scent genre. However, I'll be investing my money in a 2nd and 3rd bottle of and not By Kilian. Your mileage may vary and, as mentioned, I find this to be a excellent fragrance.
This question seems to come up every winter when the outside temperatures drop precipitously! It depends on the alcohol content, but most wine will freeze at about 15 to 20 degrees F, and it would need to stay at that temperature for a while before it freezes solidly. Alcohol's freezing point is lower than water, but as the water content of the wine begins to freeze, it will begin to expand, and this will put a lot of pressure on the cork, which might begin to be pushed out, and on the bottle, which might crack. Don't freeze your wine bottles!
