I have been wanting to write about Serge Lutens’ Fille en Aiguilles since I was first introduced to it at the Perfume Lovers London Perfume and Well-being event. I’ve thought very much about its name, Fille en Aiguilles, which translates to “girl in needles” and “girl in stilettos”. I’ve thought about this duality and what it represents to me. Two wholly different representations of our public and private selves.

Perfume Lovers London Perfume and Well BeingStandard
Yesterday evening I attended my first Perfume Lovers London event, Perfume and Well Being hosted by Lila das Gupta and presented by Tanya Moulding of The Perfume Mistress. Aside from running fragrance workshops, talks, private parties and perfume events, Tanya also works as an aromatherapist and had an extensive amount of information to offer to us about a variety of our favorite perfume accords, their history and the various ways she uses them in her line of work.
