Anna’s Orwell Prize shortlisted Blog: Madam Miaow Says
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
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 ?

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.
How observant of you. Yes, that was me. Please email me if you are looking for a chat. E: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Thanks, I’d never heard of those, Maria. Can you get them now? I shall do a search …
Sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner, yes you can buy those scents. I especially love Carons Tabac Blond, which has a light tobacco aroma. Women wanted to smell of cigarettes as it was classed as quite daring for young women to smoke.
Good Stuff, do you currently have a youtube account?
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
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.
