I suppose I might be able to make room on my shelf for Eau Triple La Baigneuse, the fragrance perfumer Daniela Andrier created as an interpretation of the Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres painting The Valpinçon Bather, which hangs at The Louvre, who as you may remember asked Buly 1803 to come up with a few fragrances based on their collection. The collection is out now, 8 fragrances, each available in a variety of items including scented postcards, candles, soap sheets, alabasters (I'm still jealous of Jessica's) and spray perfumes. Here's the description for La Baigneuse, which is €125: "Steam rising from marble sluiced with waves of heated water, dampened muslin wraps the shining limbs, delicately soaped; susurrations of the hammam. After bathing, resting on fresh sheets, the skin, still beaded with moisture, is chafed with lavender and orange blossom; now refreshed, its velvety pallor like an iris petal pearled by a mist of incense and musk."
I thought I saw some comments here? That website is a time sink for sure. I want several of those things. Ugh. Sticking to my budget and not buying any of them, yet!
It’s a serious time sink, and I will probably never buy anything there.
