Linden Wilson The Goop Pops Dinner Diaries: Reviving the Art of the Hostess Book (Assouline, $50) is a charming book filled with everything one should already know — but many of us don't — about how to throw a sensational dinner party. Author Daniel Cappello (The Ivy League) takes the track of questionnaires answered by a group of dinner-party wizards, who also happen to be very unstuffy. For example, no dinner party would be complete without: "Booze!" says Allison Aston emphatically. Cornelia Guest states, "No dinner party is complete without 'some sort of mayhem.'" Coffee at the table or served in another room? "We don't drink coffee, we dance after dinner," writes Nanette Lepore. Small talk: Is it an insulting waste of time or social lubricant? "Neither; big brains make small talk smart," says Shirin von Wulffen. What makes for a bad guest? "Me in a bad mood," warns Becca Cason Thrash. All are words to live and dine by. Toward the back of the book, pages for table seating wait to be filled in, as well as a set of blank questionnaires to be parceled out and answered by hosts you admire. Holly Moore Dinner as Theater This past year has been a big one for Matt Alexander. In November 2013, the London-raised, Dallas-based entrepreneur launched his startup Need, an online retail destination for men — a curated selection of clothing, furniture, literature and more. This past September, he hosted an exclusive pre-sale for Spring 2015 during New York Men's Day at New York Fashion Week. In celebration of Need's one-year anniversary, a special birthday collection launches November 5 — and on November 1, Alexander's first pop-up shop, Unbranded, will be unveiled in Deep Ellum. "I wanted to experiment with bricks-and-mortar retail and in-person returns during the holiday season," Alexander says. Together with good friend Bryan DeLuca, creator of Foot Cardigan, Alexander will host brands Quixotic, Wrong Side, Ministry of Supply and Edo Popken, who were selected via an application process to have the free space to sell their wares and host events. Companies rotate in and out every week or two, while coffee shops such as Houndstooth and Tweed offer beverages. "All of these groups have built- in customers and fans who frequently don't have a place to congregate," Alexander says. "We're bringing them into the same space where they can be exposed to some of the fantastic creative work happening in the city." Need pop-up shop, 2614 Elm Street, November 1 through January 8. Linden Wilson All You NEED P aris-based Maison Francis Kurkdjian dips into our collective memory with its new men's fragrance, Masculin Pluriel. Leathery with hints of vanilla and lavender, this nostalgic scent brings to mind our fathers and grandfathers, freshly shaven and splashed with a dash of cologne. The fresh, woodsy scent mixes a traditionally masculine fougère accord with notes of lavender absolute from Provence, Eastern red cedar, Indonesian patchouli and Haitian vetiver. Its creator, master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, rose to prominence in 1995 with his first scent, Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier. During an appearance at Neiman Marcus Willow Bend last month, company co-founder Marc Chaya said of Kurkdjian's new olfactory creation, "It plays on the impression of the smell that you feel very comfortable with, but it's unique because it has the creativity of Francis. He wanted it to be timeless — something anchored in our collective imagination." $185, exclusively at Neiman Marcus NorthPark and Willow Bend.

The candle is part of La Mer's new collection that also includes rejuvenating serums, balms, creams and a limited- edition illuminating powder. $80, at Neiman Marcus Downtown and NorthPark.
