"Perfume is a stimulant of the senses, a concentration, a contour. It is our own shadow. It is a luxurious image, our transparency, a majestic choreography, a kind of inner palace, an architecture of exquisite crystal."

Serge Lutens

  4. @Fashion, Art and other fancies: it really is! I found it inside the perfume box and thought it sounded absolutely beautiful. Lutens is such a creative person - I wrote about him and his works on my blog back in winter, so if you are interested, you can always have a look.

    P.S. I think Sarah and I will have a few more interesting posts in the future - it's such a pleasure to work with her and be featured on her gorgeous blog.
