    Hi Anna,

    I’m a big fan of Anna May Wong but don’t know which perfume she wore, have you any idea?
    I added you on face book I hope you don’t mind :)

    Regards Maria x

  2. Dear Madam,
    Is it you who encountered Keith Moon around 1975 ? I’m presently writing a book about him to be released this coming autumn. Would you have things to tell ?
    Yours truly, Daniel LESUEUR (all my books published and profesional experience are on

    Hello Maria,

    That is a really interesting question. I know Diaghalev’s favourite perfume — Mitsouko by Guerlain — which I have worn for years. But Anna May Wong … I wonder if Chanel No 5 was around then (famously worn by Marilyn Monroe). That’s another fave. I’ll keep an eye open although I can’t recall any being mentioned in the biogs.

    Hi Again Anna,
    I noticed that women of that era wore perfumes like Bandit and vol de nuit as worn by deitrich. They were developed for women that were a bit more daring and smoked in public.

    Luv Maria

    Thanks, I’d never heard of those, Maria. Can you get them now? I shall do a search …

    Hi Anna
    With your background and wide interests I am curious to know if you have seen or heard John Adams’ opera “Nixon in China”? I am a political activist as well as a classical music lover and I rather like his music. But so far I have not yet heard this particular piece and thought you might have done and wondered what you made of it both musically and politically.
    Yours sincerely and in peace
    Rudi Affolter

    Yes, saw it at the Colosseum a few years back. Loved it. Music was great. Humour was quite wry — it wasn’t crude China-bashing. Would like to see it again as I’ve forgotten much of it.
