    I would love to see that. I just read Tilar J. Mazzeo's book, The Secret History of Chanel No. 5. It was so interesting and it had me craving No. 5 while I was reading it. -- Lilybelle

  3. Wish I could go and see it. Probably because I adore no 5.

  4. L,

    it's a very interesting book, based on interesting research on several issues (and I should know, saw it getting developed as we communicated a bit with the author)

  5. e,

    one can adore much worse things... Wear some and think of all the people who were entangled in its creation.
