FAROUCHE HAS BECOME A NECESSITY

Unfortunately, Farouche has become a necessity. ‘Unfortunately’ : because it was long discontinued and is something of a rarity, and because now I need a stable and regular supply.

It is so beautiful. Of all the woody aldehydes , it is possibly the most understated, subtle, elegant, ‘difficult’; moody. The most androgynous. And possibly the most poetic.

It has been a slow burner. And it is certainly not sexy on me. But I find it immensely calming and dignifying; and the bottle you see above is now down to a low third.

We are going out to Yokohama tomorrow, where in one particular shop, locked away in a glass cabinet in a basement antique place near the sea, I know for sure that there is a long untouched vintage parfum.

  1. I know exactly what you mean about Farouche. You know it is one of my favorites, has been since I discovered it in 1986. I hope you will get that pristine bottle as soon as possible, you need it. As I say, perfume as armour.
