I’ve been wearing Hedera helix almost daily as of late, sometimes by choice and sometimes just from making so much of it lately. My clothes are infused with the green, floral heaven that it is and since the longevity is tenacious I can often smell it on my skin the next day.
Last night Greg and I decided to re-watch one of my very favorite films of all time, the 1998 re-make of Great Expectations directed by Alfonso Cuarón. While breathing in the glorious green color script of this motion picture it occurred to me that Hedera helix is perfect for the Gwyneth Paltrow character Estella. Hedera is green, complicated, pretty, sophisticated, romantic, bewitching, dark and a tad snobby in a classic Chypre way.
