It's June — time for the annual summer reading poll!
Please recommend a great book to add to our summer reading lists, and tell us what fragrance we should wear while reading it.
I have just finished two sad / nostalgic books, both excellent: About Alice by Calvin Trillin (on my to-read list since it came out, oh, 10+ years ago) and Between Them: Remembering My Parents by Richard Ford (which came out last month). Alice Trillin never wore perfume, but if she did I'd say something like Hermès Calèche? Just before those two, I finished The Black Russian by Vladimir Alexandrov, which Victoria at Bois de Jasmin recommended to me years ago, and Cold Earth, the latest in the Shetland mystery series by Ann Cleeves.
