Les Fleurs du Mal

“I love to watch the fine mist of the night come on,
The windows and the stars illumined, one by one,
The rivers of dark smoke pour upward lazily,
And the moon rise and turn them silver. I shall see
The springs, the summers, and the autumns slowly pass;
And when old Winter puts his blank face to the glass,
I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight,
And build me stately palaces by candlelight.”
― Charles Baudelaire, Les Fleurs du Mal

The Future is ‘Phygital’

Eric Hazan: We are entering the world of “phygital”—physical and digital at the same time, where there is not a physical world or digital world in retail, but rather a completely connected one.

World Book and Copyright Day!

“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

I have no words when it comes to Somerset. My all time favourite writer whose stories are flows of words about the life and adventures of ordinary people in ordinary circumstances.
Somerset’s artful gift of gab made them extraordinary people living in extraordinary circumstances.

Love is not a hot-house flower

“Love is not a hot-house flower, but a wild plant, born of a wet night, born of an hour of sunshine; sprung from wild seed, blown along the road by a wild wind. A wild plant that, when it blooms by chance within the hedge of our gardens, we call a flower; and when it blooms outside we call a weed; but, flower or weed, whose scent and colour are always, wild!”
John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga

Express your own personality with scent. May we suggest our amaranthine Lemon Noir? Accented with black cherries and saffron, this scent draws you in with a rush of seductive roses and jasmine. Then its heart is revealed, a trail of bergamot, a bouquet of oranges, lemons, vanilla and sandalwood.

Perfumes smell great, but they also make the world more interesting, more beautiful. And that’s what you want to radiate when you wear the right perfume.

Hopeful and Happy Easter!

“The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.”

The serenity of June roses

This painting steals my heart with its silence, serenity, reverie, and its roses.

It pins down to memory like Pearlovski number 34, the midsummer perfume. It smells like baby rose buds and freshly cut grass..

Perfume is the memory of a feeling
. In this case the memory of the happy expectancy of a long summer, guarded by flowers.
There is freedom in the rose buds in the garden. Freedom to shine and smell like heaven on earth.
