    Thanks for sharing the photos Riannon. Sudsy's posts always made me smile no matter how I was feeling. Her energy and enthusiasm was infectious and still resonates with me.

    I was going to wear VIW for Sudsy too, but it gave me a rash when I wore it earlier in the week. I think I get these rashes when I'm a bit run down. I have a slight sore throat and a massive mouth ulcer right now - the friend I visited last weekend now has a cold so hope I'm not getting it. Bleh.

    Tabac Blond for me.

    I'm confused today, put on NR for Her, which I haven't worn in nearly a year, then dabbed some Love's True Bluish Light on my neck and wrists.

    Somehow it works. But I don't know what to call it.

    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!!

    Cedre performed beautifully all day: through a stressful day at work trying to get comfortable with a new campaign, warming me up in the grey autumn rain, never becoming overpowering or out of place when the sun shot through the clouds, and still softly present this evening for our regular Friday date with friends for nibblies and drinks. What could follow this up?
