Following up the line of thought that perfume brand names are all on the same message, I took Lillian’s idea and used it on a list of French perfume brand names.


La vie est belle


La petite Robe noire


Eau des merveilles

L’air du temps


La nuit de l’homme

Mon paris

Rive Gauche

Habit noir




La nuit trésor



And I got this


À Paris, mon Paris,

ma rive gauche,

moi, en petite robe noire,

toi, en habit noir,

nous goutons

l’eau des merveilles,

et l’instant vibre,

intense comme la nuit trésor

cette nuit de l’homme,

toi en noir, sauvage,


la vie est belle.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
