The smell of the exclusive candles set the tone of the store. It reminds you of Erykah Badu with a Givenchy twist.

Painters Aaron Maybin, Rags, Davon Carey & many others had there work displayed for everybody to see at the event. Poets showcased there work but putting there life situations & accomplishments into deep words. 1914 affair was amazing we danced to Tony Toni Tone all the way to A$AP Rocky & Drake. The light refreshments included Ciroc & Complementary wine.
