As Perfume Doth Remain ...
As perfume doth remain
In the folds where it hath lain,
So the thought of you, remaining
Deeply folded in my brain,
Will not leave me; all things leave me:
Arthur Symons (1865-1945)
Today's fragrance: Serge Lutens Sa Majeste la Rose with its notes of white rose, chamomile, lichee, geranium, Moroccan rose, gaiac wood, clove, white honey and vanilla. Initially the herbal rose of high summer, a spiced sweetness emerges much later. Long, long -- if faint -- drydown of pale honeyed vanilla.
