If Mr. Hulot came to Martha’s Vineyard for his holiday I am sure he would find everything very much to his satisfaction. If he decided to bring his antique car over on the ferry he would feel right at home as in August we have our antique car show and many such remarkable vehicles can be seen on our country roads. Might I suggest the road to Aquinnah where drivers can sniff the salty ocean air smelling of driftwood and rocks covered with seaweed?
The Aquinnah Cliffs would make a fine walk on a foggy morning for Mr.Hulot, as would a stroll in Oak Bluffs by the pretty Gingerbread cottages.
Mr. Hulot’s artistic sensibilities would be tickled by the various artists seen painting Martha’s Vineyard scenes.
And the child in him would sincerely enjoy hunting for seaglass I’m certain…
Mr. Hulot might take his battered leather suitcase to a charming cottage by the sea… and later take a delicious supper at the Black Dog tavern…
To remember his sweet stay, and the lovely holidays many of us have taken, the indomitable Christopher Brosius has created a wonderful perfume called “Mr. Hulot’s Holiday” reminding one of salty ocean air, battered leather suitcases, and rocks covered with seaweed. I would describe the perfume as “sweet fresh and lovely”; a wonderful mood enhancer. Conveniently the scent is presented at Christopher Brosius’ Gallery and on his website http://www.cbihateperfume.com/ as a 15ml absolute, a 100ml water perfume (essential oils dispersed in water to retain purity of fragrance) and as a 150ml room spray. And of course, CB offers all scents in a 2ml perfume absolute trial/travel size.
Natural or Blended: Blended
Worth the Risk to Purchase Unsniffed? : Yes, if you like Oceanic/Rain type perfumes.
