Today I wore Paradis Perdu. Don’t know about Paradise, but the scent is perdu by now. It’s a good sharp green scent, not your usual boozy Frapin frag at all.
Intriguing is a good word for that outfit. I think he has done extremely well in mixing black and white patterns (including his mo) and I have to confess that it looks quite elegant, until you get to his head. That’s just a monstrosity that screams “look at me”. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s a milliner, and he’s chosen to make a billboard out of his head, trawling the racetrack to get himself photographed to pump up his business.

Tabac Rouge today. Thunderstorms and driving rain, seems right.
