“You knew of it as an unholy place that society ranted and warned you about. Located in West Village, NYC, was the Stonewall Inn, a shady bar frequently visited by drag queens and outsiders. In the early hours of June 28, 1969, this area became the birthplace of the Stonewall Uprising, one of the most significant social turning points in modern history. Some even - truthfully - state: 'The first pride was a riot`.”
Keywords for the fragrance are enigmatic, sultry and gourmet.

FRAGRANCE JOURNEY JUNE 28
SO, WHAT’S YOUR BUSINESS?
In a leafy part of the suburb there is a beautiful lane with well-kept residences and flourishing gardens. This includes the household of Jim Olmeyer and Jim Berkley and their small dog Bitsy who tends to bark a lot. New to the vicinity however, is the Fitts family. The father, US Marine Colonel Frank Fitts sports a strict crew cut and a classic brown cardigan with a checkered shirt. Reading glasses on, he studies the newspaper at the kitchen table while his wife is preparing breakfast. The door bell rings. Frank: “Are you expecting anyone?” Mrs Fitts: “No. No!” Frank answers the door where Jim and Jim wait, both eager to greet their new neighbors to the community. Wearing suits and ties, there is a pleasant waft of fragrance as they present a wicker basket generously filled with homegrown vegetables, pasta and fresh, colorful flowers.
Jim O: “Hi!”
Jim B: “Welcome to the neighborhood.”
Jim O: “It’s just a little something from our garden.”
Jim B: “Except for the pasta. We got that at Fallaci ́s.
Jim O: “Right. It is unbelievably fresh. You drop it in the water and it´s done. Jim Olmeyer. Two doors down. Welcome to the neighborhood.”
Frank: “Colonel Frank Fitts US Marine Corps.
Jim O: “It’s nice to meet you. This is my partner.”
Jim B: “Jim Berkley, but people call me J.B.”
Frank: “Let’s cut to the chase, okay? What are you guys selling?”
Jim B: “Nothing. We just wanted to say hi to our new neighbors.”
Frank: “Yeah, yeah, yeah... You said you’re partners? So, what’s your business?”
Jim O: “Well… he is a tax attorney.”
Jim B: “And he is an anesthesiologist.”
The Fragrance Journey is based on a scene from the drama film American Beauty (1999), written by Alan Ball and directed by Sam Mendes.
