112941903127218383_pEKC9TJK_cIn honor of the birthday of  Edgar Allan Poe, here is a glimpse of what Clarimonde wore to the Masque of the Red Death.

Here is the story Masque of the Red Death.

As an immortal, she  witnessed  and survived the scenes described.  Sadly such events have been replayed time and time again and again.


Jeff Buckley reading Ulalume, whose beauty and untimely death joins in the haunting legend:

The essence of a former time pervades the poetry and stories of Edgar Allan Poe, like perfume rising from the page.  For perfumes to read Poe by, I recommend the sonorous Oud Louban and Immortal Mine as conduits to the experiences described in Ulalume and The Masque of the Red Death.

A tribute to the divine Edgar by Tarlesio, a friend of Clarimonde’s: A Man of the the Crowd.
