The distinctive human problem from time immemorial has been the need to spiritualize human life, to lift it onto a special immortal plane, beyond the cycles of life and death that characterize all other organisms.
The history of civilization is the story of man's emancipation from a lot that was harsh, brutish, and short. Every step of that upward climb to a sophisticated way fo life has been paralleled by a corresponding advance in the art of perfumery.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
(And) always smell as nice as possible.
