    Wearing l’heure bleu today and it may have been inspired by this x

    • did you ever actually buy it?

      if only i could find a bottle at the flea markets….it’s extortionate here, only the big, glorious, fried foodish, marzipan, almond, glorious 30 ml extrait.

      so GORGEOUS.

      the dandy’s review of it the other day was a meisterwerk of pale miseria : i loved it.

    A lovely photograph. So evocative of Fall when the big garden spiders build their webs. My parents brought me a bottle of L’Heure Bleu back from a trip to France they took in the 1970s. The fragrance that reminds me the most of it is Esprit de Oscar, which came out last year. I wonder if a modern version would be as pleasing as I remember it…….

    Gorgeous! An entire world within each drop.

    • I know what you mean.

      They were there, stretching out over the fir trees, and I made us stop until I could at least attempt to capture one full nest.

      I have never seen such full, opalesque, egg like, huge, lounging drops that still somehow managed to remain intact.

      For me, in the arachnid context, it was both compelling, and appalling.
