MY INSTINCTS DID LEAD ME TO A HARDWARE STORE

The Black Narcissus

A place with nothing but unappealing, cheapo knick-knacks, hideous furniture, second hand electrical devices, bits and bobs, ugly jewellery boxes…..a place I would never even sully your mind with for its intrusion of drab, functional banality, for fear your very eyes would suddenly fester on their stalks.

I suppose we had wandered in because we once got a fake leather sofa from there, because D has an eye for a bargain, and because they had once gotten hold of some coconut incense that for a while I then became vaguely addicted to.

As we were about to leave, my head turned, my synapses connected, my heart lurched, and I let out that familiar OH  MY  GOD, as my startled orbs alighted, dazzled, on a very cherished sight in a cabinet right in front of the cash register that I had somehow, in my visual boredom, overlooked: a classic, vintage, Guerlain…

  1. Wrapped in a fata morgana and awakening in a dream. Truly wonderful.

    After your advice on greens i went on a spree for Infini by Caron And I discovered an Extrait de Parfum for 70 €, approx 85 $. Should I buy him? I don’t know it but after Reading your comment I almost could Smell him, And I became curieus as befits a Gemini.
    Hermes caleche I’m still pursuiing, but that’s a fast and expensive drive. And So many trees in the wood, Kelly, perfume, EdP…. That will keep.
    For now. Thanks for the advice.

    • I think that’s a bit expensive for Infini and the quality varies so greatly in the vintage that you might be disappointed. Also, NEVER buy the vaporisateurs, they are always off. A really good Caleche parfum is DIVINE though ( I sent one to Birgit of Olfactoria and she treasures it to death). It is so beautiful: green, poetic, yet removed.

  2. And now you have adder other scents as well. Femme was my first perfume. Ma Griffe was my mother’s but she discarded it after discovering that my father’s Mistress used it as Well! Then she hopped on to Joy, good second marriage.
    I have such a way to go … But keep on advising me. About Infini? See my beforelast post.

  3. i alternate between soap and perfume in my Posts. Sorry!
