"Love no one but me!" - "N'aimez que moi!"
Paris, 1916.

There is a dense crowd at the station. Young couples stand close together in front of the open doors of a long train, saying goodbye with quiet words. On the platform at the very back, a long train pulls in. The doors open, out slowly and wearily climb many men in dirty uniforms. Tired eyes stare into space. From the sliding doors soldiers lift other men out on stretchers. Their shouts and moans penetrate through the low whispers on the other platform. The couples pause and look over. Quickly they look away again and fix their gazes firmly on each other. A shrill whistle sounds.
Before boarding the train, he presses a small package into her hand, wrapped in parcel paper, and whispers, "N'aimez que moi!" The doors close, the train rolls slowly out of the station. For a long time she stands there, the little parcel in her hand, watching the train go by. Finally, she looks at the little package and slowly unwinds the wrapping paper, "N'aimez que moi" - "Love no one but me!"

Power-hungry men had driven Europe into a war that would be unparalleled in its cruelty for decades, one that would eventually engulf the entire world and cost millions of lives. In 1916 France was engaged in a war of position against Imperial Germany, which was largely fought as a battle of materiel, especially in front of Verdun: trains brought back the dead and wounded, healthy young men were taken with them to fight "the enemy" - young men of another nation - to their positions at the fronts, the machinery of the industrial nations reliably supplied the Hellmouth with supplies of men and ammunition. The men in the trenches had to endure constant deafening bombardment and gas attacks; not a few of them suffered irreparable psychological damage, if they escaped hell.

In this oppressive situation, Ernest Daltroff created a fragrance, to comfort and as a gift for the brides of these young soldiers who stayed behind: "N'aimez que moi".

The opulent prelude is a ravishingly beautiful bouquet of delicate piercing lilacs and interspersed with dark red roses, noble and dominating the garden with their fragrance: lilacs represent May, a month when the trees and shrubs have leafed out, giving hope for the end of winter. A lilac bush is covered all over with blossoms whose sweet fragrance can be detected from afar. May is traditionally the month for infatuation, the young love that matures during the summer. As a summer flower, the rose appropriately takes the place of the lilac. So typically, the somewhat powdery iris, as the flower of constancy and fidelity, supports the two expansive fragrance beauties. The scent of cedar permeates this powdery yet expressive trio, grounding it, strengthening it, giving it depth and serenity. and also the cedar, sign of permanence and strength. Sandalwood and vanilla are not only considered precious, but also aphrodisiac, in no perfume like this with love as a theme should they be missing. They add soft and gentle sweetness to the bouquet, rounding it out without overpowering the vanilla as in today's fragrances. Finally, Caron's classic mousse de saxe of vetiver and oakmoss, along with musk, give the fragrance a somber, even melancholy, progression as it progresses, which, like people's emotions, lasts "forever". The dark base in conjunction with the still predominant floral vanilla almond woody sweetness expresses as a downright olfactory oxymoron a paradox of love between passion and loss - again a bow of Daltroff to the sacrifice of these young people.

Daltroff's creation of "N'aimez que moi" weaves the hope and despair of the people of the time into an olfactory masterpiece. The fragrance lives and feeds on the contradiction of light (lilac, rose) and dark (cedar, mousse de Saxe), romantic love and loss, and thus ultimately also reflects the thoughts and feelings of the young women who have to let their lovers and husbands go to a cruel war with their eyes open, remembering the wonderful love, wistful because of the lost time and looking anxiously into the future. "N'aimez que moi" has a deeply melancholic side: it is the contribution of a gifted perfumer to his country, to the people of his homeland, in a war that was to produce no real victor. Like "Tabac Blond" or "En Avion", for example, "N'aimez que moi" is a thematic fragrance, but a rather little-known early masterpiece by Ernest Daltroff compared to the aforementioned Caron icons

Oh, lost...
Like when you
into imperfection
of the world
would fall in love,
you could see,
that most
Weaknesses
have their deep meaning.

And that you finally
if you could look at it,
that you
in this life
the independent flying
with
without
Propeller
no longer
will be able to learn.

It would be a
further
great failure,
a failure,
all along the line,
once again -
all mixed up
brought.
Bang! Bull's-eye.
Leafshot.

Hallelujah !

It wouldn't have to be like this,
and so sheared
it you
not even further,
because you would have been
made free:
of expectations
and the expected.

You could
cheerful
your new,
this time intensive
flowered,
with lurex threads
and tracer velvet soft fibres
interspersed
Circus jackets,
which is NOT !
is tailored to growth,
for the first time
execute.

So let it all out what you have don't pull anything in
and do not force anything in the form:
today everything is allowed !

28° outside,
envious looks
from all sides;
"Such splendor,
where did you get this,
where can you get that?"

"Well," you said "this is like everything in life
a matter of the heart,"
throw provocatively
promising
a kissing hand
into the quantity
and otherwise leave
continue on your way.

You encountered all kinds of things
People and funny fellows,
who greeted me kindly
Creti and pleti,
Klaus Gause
and Gundula glue;
today both
with new trend hairstyles.

Fred from Jupiter,
and the
Friend of all women.

You cared
not
the disgruntled neighbour,
not the janitor,
not the knocking
in the outbuilding
and not
the current table status
the
Bundesliga.

You didn't give a shit not.
Nothing.
And nobody
And it would be you
never mind,
that in answer to Robert Lemke's question
"What am I?"
in this life
no answer
will give more.

You would be so
trallala,
that in these
Let's-be-well-being-and-change times
not even more
to the
"3 Weather Taft"
Can be relied upon.

And you'd be fine also past the ass,
that in the evening you'll be.. at nineteen-thirteen
only advertising
for pensioners,
instead of you from

to want.

(Say, 'br /> which has got a lot
you've put on a few pounds, haven't you? )

Actually
it would only be
a little something,
someone unknown
to confess your love -
even if it is;
ahem,
maybe not
whole
w a h r is...

And it would only be
an asterisk in the surf,
and it would only be a
Flapping of wings
and
supple
Shrug worth,
once
to look closely,
to be approved
to be touched
and then afterwards >br /> to turn away
and to leave,
into the fog,
into the flames.

The rest
would not be a
Chanterelle
value
and
high
on the yellow
Wagon
if it were possible
next

through thick
and thin
and stupid.

_______________________________________________________________br />
And then something comes along,
that happens so easily,
in the world,
all at once,
like a tender
behind you
breathed here
Declaration of love,
a stroking of the cheek
and a
heart connecting
Totals.
Something,
that makes you tender
plucked from the tube
and you
vanilla breath
promising
Promises
makes:
from a world beyond
of all severity
and flowerlessness.

And asked for it,
how you see the whole thing,
you say:
"That simple?"

And you say, "Yes! So easy." And, "Why not?"
And: "N' aimez que moi !"

A perfume

vanilla-iris lilac blossoms timelessly beautiful
through the universe

Oh,

The most luxurious rose I have ever sniffed, as only Caron can.
I tried this because I was looking for a violet perfume. I did not get any violet at all. Not a hint.

It is, however, the most divine rose. Soft, creamy, luxurious. It's a classic, timeless scent. Rose perfected. It's not "old" but classy, strong, like the woman of our past with steel spines and delicate hands, enduring a world men could never understand.

There are no violets in here. It's all Roses. The vanilla and sandalwood give it a creamy texture. There is also amber mingling in the base with a little oakmoss and perhaps some musk.

Forget Me Not at All
Caron's website says:
The First World War was raging, young women yearned for their loved ones who had gone to the Front. N’Aimez Que Moi was given by young soldiers to their sweethearts before they left. It was a pledge of faithfulness, so they could renew their love vows every day until their men returned.

My Caron catalog says:
N’Aimez Que Moi (1916) Flowered Chypre
To boost the morale of the troops and their Penelopes, Caron introduced this fragrance-"Don't love anyone but me"-as forget me not. Luscious notes of candy and violet on a tender yet intense chypre base.

I was wondering how this hypnotic fragrance could possibly come from only the three listed notes. Try not to sniff it while driving or walking or doing anything requiring sight because your eyes will want to close to prevent sensory input other than what's delighting your nose. The oakmoss is strong, supported by sandalwood, amber and musk. Yes, there are other florals, but a beguiling rose is at this perfume's heart. There's history in the scent (almost 100 years of it), but this is one of the most amazing perfumes I've ever smelled. It has that lush base that undergrids so many Carons, but N'Aimez Que Moi is no copy cat. It is a star. Think powdery rose brilliance and you're close. Longevity and sillage to the max, of course. N'aimez que moi made the quarter finals in my sniff fest still underway of 96 rose perfumes. A must buy if you love great scents of yore.
