|This photograph was somewhat of a last minute attempt to enter this contest, because let's face it, I love books and I didn't want to miss out. =)
Somewhere between spilling a ridiculous amount of this perfume on myself, accidentally soaking my braided hair in the waterfall, and it being ridiculously cold outside while I wasn't wearing a coat (it was 38 degrees Fahrenheit when I took this), I decided this shot would have to do. I edited some for color and contrast, gave it a vignette, and called it a day.
And what a day it's been. I still smell like Victoria Secret's Noir Summer! Haha.
"In the slums of eighteenth-century France, the infant Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born with one sublime gift - an absolute sense of smell. As a boy, he lives to decipher the odors of Paris, and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs. But Grenouille's genius is such that he is not satisfied to stop there, and he becomes obsessed with capturing the smells of objects such as brass doorknobs and frest-cut wood. Then one day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him on an ever-more-terrifying quest to create the "ultimate perfume" - the scent of a beautiful young virgin. Told with dazzling narrative brillance, Perfume is a hauntingly powerful tale of murder and sensual depravity."
