mademoiselle de la Vallière

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

this guy from barneys was trying to sell me this 100 dollar CIRE TRUDON candle once, i was not sold cos of the ridiculous price tag, but i finally got it, on sale now. the oldest candemaker in the world, founded in 1643, even marie antoinette and napoleon were fans, the scent i have is mademoiselle de la vallière, secret powers of a naked flower, named after the love of louis the xiv. it feels like poetry flying out from an absinthe green candle glass. the smell of love, and unicorns, and fantasia.
