I was the secret lover of Marie Antoinette
I am having that experience!
I was the secret lover of Marie Antoinette and entered her room last night.
Now, the next day, it is the day she died.
And I am after that sad hour and all I can remember in my horror is her smell.
Or, saying better, our smell, hers and mine, mixed in my body odor, the geranium and the orris root mixing molecules will be my memory of the night I said goodbye to Marie Antoinette.

(this is the only perfume I have tested that I believe allows me to know how perfumery was once; it induced my museum delirium described above)

The here and now
So have to smell Arabian nights, in any case I can imagine very, very well.

So opulent, almost turgid, luxurious, powdery, pleasantly sweet, heat radiating, forgetting everything, and only I be in the here and now.
The scent turned me to once again the head. So infatuatingly beautiful he wraps me.
It is an immersion in another world.

I'll have to share a good "Little", what I have of this masterly work, me.
For the "Big" experience may I say many thanks to the donor.

Absolute powder bomb on my skin with a faint bright floral undercurrent. Dry, earthy, starchy, dusty powder. Very nice but just like talc.+1
