    Summary

    '...in the closet (the one used by guests just off the hall) he'd had the boy put out scented soap (Coty Chypre) and a little pink hand towel which was obviously brand new. I had the feeling it had been bought especially for the occasion. (The soap in his own bathroom was Lifebuoy, so don't jump to the wrong conclusion!)' -- Daphne Manners to Lady Manners, 17th July 1942.

    And as Sister Ludmila notes, Ronald Merrick 'looked right but he did not smell right [...] he smelt all wrong.'

    Note: usually I use 'is his own exhaustive list of content warnings' as a bit of a joke. It's not a joke here, but I think the tags more or less cover it.
