FRIDAY FRIPPERIES
LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL SYCOMORE 
I received a large sample of this last week and I have already burned through the entire thing. Sycomore smells of a woodland spirit turned posh socialite; a dryad living on the upper East Side; a ramble through the woods in Prada boots and an Hermès scarf.“In 1930, Mademoiselle Chanel had already dreamt of a woody perfume that would stand apart. The result is SYCOMORE: a dry, noble and powerful fragrance. A metaphor for her legendary tenacity perhaps? In any case, it is a perfect illustration of her masterly stroke of elegance: this luxurious vetiver, subtly dashed with spices, enchants with its aristocratic simplicity and leaves a long warm breeze in its wake.”
$280 for 6.8 oz

She was an openly bisexual poet and playwright who was also known for her feminist activism.
And also for being a total babe.
