Slept late - was looking to you guys for inspiration for today. Balenciaga's Michelle fell to hand (thankyouthankyou dear Mouse!!)
"Michelle is a classic floral blend from the couture firm of Cristobal Balenciaga, introduced after the designer's death. Michelle begins with snappy aldehydes and fruits. The bright mixture dissolves into a rich floral heart, supported by woody base notes with a sweet, powdery finish. ....Michelle is named for Balenciaga's top model from the 1960s."
Ackshully it start out like freesia for me - freesia and peaches!!???? After a half hour it's still flowery and quite elegant - models in the 60s weren't quite the free wheeling, coke sniffing jet setters they are today. They were more aloof and set apart and tended to marry serious businessmen with houses in the Hamptons, have babies and head up charities. (Think Suzy Parker - Dorian Leigh - Lisa Fonssagrives) Michelle is that kind of model!!
