Lilac Bathed in White-Musk Light © 2016 CHANT WAGNER
Muguet Day on May 1st, has increasingly become lilac day, thanks to the business of selling flowers on sidewalks that Roms in particular have developed. Other one-day entrepreneurs tend to focus on lily of the valley, but Roms, living on the outskirts of the town, bring lilacs with them on Labor Day...
Lilac's delicate and intoxicating fragrance - with a kick of bitterness and soft medicine - has been given an opus of reference with En Passant by Frédéric Malle composed by Olivia Giacobetti.
This white light makes me think irresistibly of white musks in perfumery. It's the same effect : haloed and radiant.
