May 1899, Foyer of the Opera-Comique, ParisDuring the Opera's intermission, a group of seven young men gather at the Grand Foyer in search of new flirtations. Women of all sorts are lured in by the crisp, green scent of the men's gardenia boutonnieres, enlivened by the bergamot and lavender colognes they war. As they draw closer, the "Opera flower" exudes its elegant masculinity, the last breath of bloom sacrificed on a black-tie lapel.
