The perfect description of Russ!
Yes, “a patchouli-scented oil slick” is wonderful, though I am unsure about the patchouli really; it’s a bit Old-Style for Russ, isn’t it? Or has it come into fashion for middle-aged wannabe-trendy-young artists?
Possibly, though I could imagine him going for flares and tie-dye…
Mind you, Freddie ought to be all for it; “its ability to work as an insect repellent has been known for centuries”, apparently, so he might hope it would repel both Russ and Lily.
