man, may be excused it they use
no perfume ; but a woman, young
and beautiful, imaginative, gay '
and happy, canuot forego the lux
ury, the elegance, the poetry , of
perfume. Fashion pas varied
greatly in this matter. In Paul
de Kock's day peppermint was
the rage, sweetmeats were flavored
with it, and aromatic dilutions
were mad of it. Ladies carried
it in their 'scent bottles and ' in
their bonbon boxes, in one form or
the other. Then came the turn of
what is termed aromatic vinegar,
speedily followed by lavendar
water, eau de Coionge, rose wa
ter, and patchouly. And since
the extreme popularity of patch '
ouly, the fashion of using perfumes
has somewhat subsided. . . In
these days few ladies positively
drop scent upon their hanker
chiefs ; they prefer to keep1 their
wardrobes well stocked with lav
ender, or orris root, or sandal
weed, so that their clothes emit a
pleasant iragrance rather tuan a
distinct odor. A young American
iudy I knew in Paris had the Clip

clothes were disposed, strewn
with sachets of strong smelling .
