Oh, what a great film, and a shimmering performance from La Davis.
In an earlier scene when Charlotte pins Jerry's camellias to her elegant black evening dress, she reaches for the perfume, tips a little into the palm of her hand, then pats the front of her hair with the palm as her disapproving mother looks on. It is a wonderful scene which fixed perfume in my mind as a form of liberating self-expression.
What would Charlotte wear? More camellias, or something else? Light, like Apres L'Ondee, or more seductive, like Narcisse Noir?
