Parfum du Jour: L'Interdit (Givenchy)

Why wear it? For a haze of fragrance on a foggy November day marked by unseasonable warmth.

What does it do? For one thing, it surrounds and soothes but does not suffocate. For another, it reminds me of childhood breakfasts consisting of sliced ripe peaches or nectarines and milk eaten with a spoon. No cereal, no sugar, no fuss. Just sweet, cold, creamy delight.

How do I feel? Cautiously optimistic.
