Is it sacrilege to dilute a parfum?

 

 

 

 

 

Maybe – I do think so,  but I had this Michelle, you see – Balenciaga, in vintage parfum, and also the eau de toilette, from the same era (all based on Michelle Stevens, who you see above, who was one of Cristobal’s favourite models of the time:: 1979), and they just weren’t quite right somehow, in and of themselves, and I knew that I had to mix them, (even if it was wrong and I might hugely end up regretting it later)…

 

 

 

 

 

 

and so I did, last night

 

 

 

 

 

 

and came home, tonight,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND THE RESULTS ARE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  1. Sometimes he does.

    Haven’t done it myself. Yet. But it’s been tempting . . .

    Michelle, as we’ve agreed before, is a helluva tuberose.

    What was each lacking to make you decide to take the plunge, Neil?

  2. You are truly one brave soul. I never in a million years would feel competent enough for such alchemy.
    So thrilled it turned out wonderfully for you.

    I saw you mentioned Miss Dior. In a recent episode of “Call the Midwife,” Trixie, one of the younger midwives, extols the virtues of Miss Dior to her co-workers. I have an old, old bottle and it really is a masterpiece. But there is nothing “Miss” about it.
