Chanel Cristalle (Chanel 1974) is a super green, elegant, lemony fragrance. And, it is, in fact, a lot like Chanel no. 19 – a another sharp, very 1970’s Chanel scent also by Henri Robert.
As a floral-chypre it’s strong. It takes no prisoners but does so with an Earthy gracefulness. On a warm summer day it’s perfect – reflective and wonderfully reserved.
Top notes: lemon, bergamot. Middle notes: rosewood and hyacinth. Base notes: vetiver and oakmoss.
This month, while I don’t have a photo of the book yet, I will be reading, Brideshead Revisted. Written by Evelyn Waugh and published in 1945 it’s often regarded as a classic and one of Waugh’s best works. I’m sincerely looking forward to reading it.
And on a personal note, our son is growing up very fast, especially recently. It reminds me of how important it is to savor every moment. Time goes by way too fast.
Until Friday. 🙂
