Long Ago Journeys
This is the first of the new Vuittons I tested and for me it was a shocker. I don't know how they did it, but this is the smell of steamer trunks, of wardrobes loaded onto pullman cars and the decks of ocean liners, ladies in fur standing at railings, waiting for the ship to sail. I can see my Grand Aunt's luggage, all packed, ready to take her who knows where and I, a toddler, crawling in among her pretty things before the trunks were closed. True, there's raspberry here and osmanthus and iris, saffron, leather of course, but this is the scent of someone leaving who loved me long ago.
