Lily and I are in the north of France!
- Pierre Dinand, the man behind some of the world’s most iconic perfume bottles.
- I really relate to this illustration.
- Favorite vanilla perfumes? I’d like to add Memoirs of a Trespasser by Imaginary Authors.
- Perfumer Christophe Laudamiel is offering an interactive experience in NYC inspired by Suskind’s book “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer”. Sounds super cool. Also super cool? I met Christophe a few weeks ago. He’s great and he has a great dog.
- I want to see this ballet but I can’t figure out yet how to buy tickets. It also looks like Giselle and Coppelia are coming next year, both of which I’m super interested on.
- Sex and love on the streets of New York- introducing the Love Map project.
- The economics of consent: “Weinstein was a gatekeeper who could give actresses a career that would sustain their lives and the livelihood of their families. He could also give them fame, which is one of few ways for women to gain some semblance of power and voice inside a patriarchal world. They knew it. He knew it. Weinstein could also ensure that these women would never work again if they humiliated him.”
- Super into the trailer for Phantom Thread. Daniel Day-Lewis is the bomb dot com.
- The joy of not wearing a bra.
- Reading Jane Eyre while black.
- Teen Vogue on #FreeMelecio. So glad to see the Yale student body uniting behind this.
- Today is the end of Asexual Awareness Week.
- Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood Beauty Standards, and Abuse: “We need also to recognize that many wealthy and powerful moguls who dehumanize women in private, treating them like consumable goods to be used for their pleasure — like products — are the very same people responsible for the commodified images of womanhood that bombard us everywhere.”
- Seeing (and smelling) a blooming corpse flower is on my bucket list.
- Have you heard about this popular new Amazon service?
