Lernert & Sander
“Everything is a perfume by consisting of all fragrances launched in 2012. Over the last year Lernert & Sander collected almost 1400 samples of newly launched fragrances. By mixing the content of all of these bottles, they created 1.5 liter of Everything. This unique perfume comes in a specially designed and hand blown bottle, an enlargement of a classic sample bottle. From March 1st to 9th, the bottle will be showcased at Colette in Paris. Visitors will have the rare chance to try it. Watch the Making Of video.” (colette.fr)

Hound love 2.14
Dark, puckered hole: a purple carnation
That trembles, nestled among the moss,
the wet of love still covering the gentle curvation
Of the white ass, just to the royal eyelet.
Threads resembling milky tears there are spun;
Spray forced back by the south wind’s cruel threat
Across the small balls of brown shit has run,
To drip from the crack, which craves for it yet.
Not wishing the prick to have its bent,
My mouth too has often mated with that vent,
My sobbing tongue tried to devour the rose
Flowering in brown moisture. The chute unmanned,
It’s a heavenly jam-pot, the Promised Land
Which with other milk and honey overflows!
- Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, ca. 1871
