Bouquet de roses by Maurice de Vlaminck
By Marie-Hélène Wagner
At the very least, a perfume signals simple luxury and care, like the gesture of offering a bouquet of flowers. Likewise, it's a pause in the day, a parenthesis of beauty in the succession of ordinary events. A perfume which is a soliflore would paradoxically signal the effect of the bouquet of flowers brought back to you from the florist best.
