Wearing it, I am my best self – it is the way I ought to smell. It feels so much a part of me that I can’t believe it isn’t organic, essential. I feel a faint sense of outrage that, after all this time, I can’t generate it myself. It should have saturated my skin. It should have soaked, by now, into my bones.
