Vintage Parfum du Jour: Nuits de Scherrer (Jean-Louis Scherrer)

Why wear it? They don't build 'em like this anymore. There are heavy metals less dense, planets with lesser gravitational fields, suns that wish they could afford this brand of heat.

What does it do? It does for lilac what Sleeping Beauty's curse did for thorn bushes: triggers a growth spurt that would leave even the bravest knight feeling timid.  Then it unleashes the amber. Hoo, the amber.

How do I feel? A little overwhelmed myself. One spritz would have been sufficient, but three? I must have been in the throes of temporary insanity. Now I feel like Sisyphus rolling a giant spherical floral arrangement up a mountain. God help those who live on the other side of the summit!
