The structure was completed April of last year. Standing 85 high and 490 by 230 feet across it boats being the largest wooden structure in the world. The structure is comprised of four levels, an underground level called the Antiquarium, where Roman and Moorish remains discovered on-site are displayed. The street level is the Central Market. The upper two levels are the two stages of the panoramic views, offering one of the best views of the city centre.

Some of the most memorable advertisements I see are for perfumes. Fun, luxurious, emotional, and electrifying, they evoke great tradition. When I smell the drops of perfume smashed between the folds of a magazine I am immediately taken back to a memory. With Chanel No. 5 I am completely eraptured with thoughts of my grandmother who wore it for decades. She always smelled of Chanel and upheld the scent with her amazing style and charisma. Not only do these advertisements take us to memories or places with the scents they hold, they also inspire us and stylize our lives by featuring models, actresses, giant bottles, animals and more. With each scent a personality is born, it is a huge decision to make and the perfumers and advertisers know this, making the advertisements reflect the woman who would were it perfectly, by showing her with a little added aspiration, charisma, sensuality, or craze! So take a look a some of my more recently favorite perfume advertisements and decide which woman you are!
