The only paradox being that nothing has changed since Lancôme Hypnose.

Ha! You mean this is not the new Chanel no 19? You really had me there. (Excellent fun to go perfume browsing with you in Jarrolds yesterday. I forgot Space NK…) xx
Saw Peter here today.
Slightly falling in love with the place ( or at the very least rediscovering it).
You aren’t here, are you ?
( I thought you were in Kenya )
What? How come I wasn’t there! Norwich is a lovely city, I’ll be visiting my mum there in a few weeks.
I’m not in Norwich, nor Kenya – we moved to Brussels in… well, it’s kind of hard to say because it happened in dribs and drabs over 2020/21. Now both employed here!
How dreary !
The closest we’ve got to meeting in years though. I bet your French is amazing by now
French amazing? No, sadly not. Altogether too much English spoken here! Not just by the international community – it also sometimes seems to be a lingua franca for the Walloons and Flemish.
Probably a good thing then
Brussels: dreary? Truth be told, one could do worse. I lived there from 2010 – 2017: first hated it, then rather enjoyed, now miss it.
I would like to go to correct my misperception. A Portuguese human rights lawyer on his way to East Timor lives there and says it is a very stimulating place in terms of ideas and changing the world over chocolat chaud – I can certainly see the Brel appeal of it all even if it has never drawn me
It’s a very comfortable place to live, perhaps a little too comfortable. And if it does get a bit dreary, it’s very easy to get to Paris, Amsterdam, London, Vienna…
Not Luxembourg though, that really is a bit dull.
I’d love to know the subtle differences between all of these places.
The only Paradoxe I like is the one from the 80s, by Pierre Cardin. That is a truly sublime Paradoxe.
Shame on Prada for reusing the name of a vintage scent, and making it uninspiring at best.
Hypnose meets Jean Paul Gaultier meets all the rest.
Perfectly nice – but ..
I actually liked this one! It reminded me of the OG Jean-Paul Gaultier Classique, but without the skank. I’ve definitely smelled worse!
Definitely : I got the JPG reference immediately too.
I sprayed some in the bathroom at D’s parents’ house and Daphne liked it immediately.
It’s just …. not original enough AND NOT REMOTELY CONTRADICTORY
A very interesting thought actually.
The same thing but with kerosene and red thyme in the top ?
