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.
L’Heure Bleue was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1912.
Its “floriental” recipe includes:
bergamot, aniseed, carnation,
orange blossom, heliotrope,
Bulgarian rose, tuberose, iris,
vanilla and musk.
(It was the first Guerlain scent to use aldehydes.)
