Cognizant to a grand finale that nature has been saving up all year round, the residual moments of summer is cognizant to a flower bursting its last beauty. Flourishing so graciously for passers-by to see and adore, a mighty flower blossoms under the spell of Summer the enchanter — from a novel bud, full of life and enigma, to an exquisite flower replete with grace and charm, to an apparatus of petals that eventually relinquish the last grasp before taking a bow on concrete floors.
Bold and daring, timeless and infinite. Those are the words to describe the latest fragrance in the eponymous Chanel N°5 line. Composed by Chanel perfumer Olivier Polge as a modern interpretation of the classic scent, its fresh and sophisticated aura is reminiscent of blooming May Rose, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang within the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera. Rejuvenating. Dynamic. Clean.
Fall is right around the corner, and one of my favorite color combo in this pre-layering era is the sartorial arsenal of black, white and grey.

“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” – L.M.
