This beautiful polish valse-hésitation written by Harry Waldau (music) and Konrad Tom (text) is about a beautiful woman envied for her perfumes, gowns and men. Her perfume, as mentioned in the song was .... Coeur de Jeanette, the exquisite creation from Houbigant.
There is something tragic about this song from 1934. In 1943 the perfume of life became the scent of death because the composer would die in Auschwitz. This recording with "Madam Loulou" is from 1943. It is captivating and sad like the permanent hesitation of the perfume - we enjoy it as it evaporates. Hesitating molecules between the paradise of scents and the bottle. Its disappearance is our joy.
