“The classics stand the test of time”_Yohji Yamamoto
In the middle of another book I started reading My Dear Bomb by Yamamoto. Just couldn’t resist to the beauty of the cover (which is black on black in bookstores)…
Each paragraph, each sentence is meant to inspire you
The book Journal d’un Parfumeur (editions Sabine Wespiese Editeur, Paris) is a book on Jean Claude Ellena’s (head perfumer at Hermes and acclaimed top nose in the business at least in the last decade) course as a perfumer and contains Jean Claude’s reflections on his art from.
The book is written with a rare delicatesse and beauty.
I recommend this reading to everyone (who unfortunately speaks french) and to those who have an interest in the art of fragrance.
One of the most inspiring autobiographies I read was D.V by and about Diana Vreeland.
As fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue,
Diana Vreeland takes us around the world with her and shares her life and passions.
Every once in a while I will post a book that I just finished reading.
This week is a french book called La Folle Allure by Christian Bobin. The writing is absolutely beautiful and each sentence is poetic. I usually underline the parts I like in books and in this one I ended up underlining every single paragraph.
If you can read in french this one is a must!
