As I was passing this bookshop, I noticed a Beatles documentary was playing on the television set. (Click image to enlarge)


You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright
Alright. ...

Revolution a Versailles Parfum by Jean Desprez (1989) A sweet, energetic revolution.
A sparkling daytime scent. This is a fruity floral with notes of plum, some sort of berry, rose, jasmine & frangipani in a vanilla, sandalwood, amber base. My sister has a bottle of this, and I like it. It's still available here and there, but might be off the market now.
