As I was reading my current Emilie Loring book, Fair Tomorrow, published in 1931, I was curious about a perfume mentioned in the first chapter. Pamela Leigh has served an authentic Cape Thanksgiving Dinner to a couple. The young woman counterpart of the couple is wearing a scent that Pamela immediately recognizes as Nuit de Noel by perfumer Caron. Pamela recalls that in the 'good days' when she was independent and able, she'd once splurged 'recklessly' on a precious ounce of the perfume.
I was curious because Loring often made reference to current fashions, operas, plays, etc., in her writings, but this was the first time I recalled a mention of a named perfume. So I looked it up. What I found was a lovely little history.
