The Moon & the Lights in Paris, or 3-Ways Lights: from the sky, the cars speeding by in the traffic and the city lamp posts...
The only olfactory reference I can think of is that I was wearing Calvin Klein Euphoria, which I had rediscovered and find arresting.
What happened next? Researching an illustration for Euphoria, I happen on their 2012 advertising campaign. I then realise that there is a moonlit night sky in the background behind model Natalia Vodianova.
I am a bit shocked. It is however not uncommon for a perfume reviewer to conjure up shared mental images with the perfumer that are communicated via the silent language of perfume.
So, it worked once again. This time, I clicked on the camera button unknowingly instead of writing down words. And maybe it is the case that I was inspired by the moonlit, brooding yet bright fragrance notes of Euphoria, subliminally felt rather than consciously experienced.
This remains true and intriguing: Euphoria is very characteristically both dark and very bright.
