"Carmen, the Spanish rose, has settled down in her courtyard for a relaxing sunshiny morning. She has some time to reflect and daydream away the serene morning hours. After hours of romanticized bliss, she decides to go out,
start her day and fulfill those dreams."
this is one of my fave shoots i've styled to date.
"Derby is an oddity, the only case of a Guerlain masterpiece gone unnoticed. Guerlain's gush and guff would have us believe that every one of Jean-Paul Guerlain's best fragrances is a paean to the eternel feminin. The truth is he's always been rather better at composing things for his own use, exhibits being Vetiver and Habit Rouge. Derby sits halfway between the confident swagger of HR and the dry restraint of Vetiver, on what might be described as the center of gravity of male fragrance. In structure, it is woody-balsamic with a touch of smoke. In radiance, it is like a kirlian photograph of a healthy leaf, projecting a deep green aura no farther than an inch, but surprisingly intense and durable up close. One of the 10 best masculines of all time."
