Parfum du Jour: Fumerie Turque (Serge Lutens)

Why wear it? Again, the weather is unseasonably frigid, with a stiff breeze that lowers one's core temperature with merciless efficiency. Such a foe must be fought with fire.

What does it do? Fumerie Turque emanates an air of Victorian British cozy-corner done over as Oriental fantasy-- brocade draperies and throw pillows mixed together with Staffordshire bric-a-brac and back issues of Punch. Ornate, yet familiar and welcoming.

How do I feel? Girded against the dread polar vortex. Boreas, do your worst!
