Books, Perfumed People, Pop Culture

“Marianne often would ease in to the dressing room so close to curtain that I was already wearing her costume. I’d whip it off and start to lace her up in it as she’d pin the waist-length blond wig to her hair and then wander onstage in a cloud of Robert Piguet’s Fracas perfume, a heavy distillation of hypnotic tuberose.”
