This blog depicts my interpretation of a chosen scent. I write a description and then list the notes and illustrate with a painting or photograph.
Thomas Gainsborough-Portrait of a Lady in Blue
Guerlain- L'Heure Bleue
Heliotrope- powdery, cherry almonds,
good enough to eat,
surround one in a joyful cloud.
Cool tones strike wistful notes.
Imagine the days when scent was so precious,
only the wealthy had this luxury;
the tremendous pleasure it gave
in a gray, dreary world.
LíHeure Bleue was created by Jacques Guerlain
