Sortilege -wish , charm , spell , magic .
Le Galion fragrances are long discontinued . I never would have heard of them had it not been for the marvelous community of bloggers I call my friends . Octavian wrote about this obscure little house and their trendy parfums of the 1930's .
Sortilege (1937) is a fluffy cloud of white flowers and aldehydes and I own my own adorable little 1/4 oz parfum . I immediately e-mailed a photo of the bottle to Octavian in Paris . He wrote back that the amazing thing about Sortilege is it's overdose of tuberose absolute , yet it does not smell much of tuberose , so beautifully balanced and blended . I feel uber-sexy wearing this , I want to go see the can-can girls..Les Folies Bergere or something !
