Just after the start of the year I popped over to the British Museum to check out the Witches and Wicked Bodies exhibition, which primarily featured illustrations depicting witches and witchcraft from the Renaissance all the way through to the 19th century.
Today I popped into Bonhams on New Bond Street to check out a selection of pieces from the Lauren Bacall Collection set to go on auction in New York on 31st March. The collection, which is currently on its international tour with stops in Hong Kong, Paris, Los Angeles, and London, was only available to view for five days at Bonhams’ New Bond Street gallery.
Legendary perfumer Edmond Roudnitska once said, “A beautiful perfume is one that gives us a shock”. That was my initial impression when I happened upon the bottle of YS-UZAC’s Sacre du Printemps I found at the November Perfume Lovers London event.
Like perfume, baking is another thing that really takes me out of my present state. For a short while, it’s just me, butter, flour, and usually a lot of sugar (chocolate is typically not far off either).
Today I attended my second Vintage Scent Session hosted by Odette Toilette at Les Senteurs. The Vintage Scent Sessions are such a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Just as before, the Scent Session was super fun and very informative. Not to mention the delicious cakes…
This evening I watched the 1971 film, The Panic in Needle Park, starring Kitty Winn and Al Pacino in his breakout role. The film, based on Bill Eppridge’s 1965 photo essay for LIFE Magazine, tells the tale of Helen and Bobby’s descent into the murky world of heroin addiction.
