On their sofas of spice and feathers, the concubines also slept fretfully In those days, the earth was till flat, and people dreamed often of falling over edges. Blacksmiths hammered the Edge Serpent on the anvils of their closed eyelids Wheelwrights rolled it, tail in mouth, down the cart roads of their slumber Cooks roasted it in dream pits, seamstresses sewed it to the badge hides that covered them, the court necromancer traced its contours in the constellation of straw on which he tossed Only the babes in the nursery lay peacefully, passive even to the fleas that supped on their tenderness. Alobar s castle, which in fact was a simple fort of stone and wood surrounded by a fence of tree trunks, contained treasures, not the least of which was a slab of polished glass that had come all the way from Egypt to show the king his face The concubines adored this magic glass, and Alobar, whose face was so obscured by whiskers that its reflection offered a minimum of contemplative reward, was content to leave it in their quarters, where they would spend hours each day gazing at the wonders that it reproduced Once, a very young concubine named Frol had dropped the mirror, breaking off a corner of it The council had wanted to banish her to the forest, where wolves or warriors from a neighboring domain might suck her bones, but Alobar had intervened, limiting her punishment to thirty lashes Later, when her wounds had healed, she bore him fine twin sons From that time on, however, the king visited the harem each new moon to make sure the looking glass had not lost its abilities. Now, on this day, the new moon of the calendar we know as September, when Alobar conducted his routine inspection, he looked into the mirror longer, intently than usual Something in the secrets and shadows of the imperfectly polished surface caught his eye He stared, and as he stared his pulse began to run away with itself He carried the glass to an open window, where refracting sparks of sunshine enlivened its ground but refused to alter its message So soon he whispered, as he tilted the mirror Another angle, the same result Perhaps the glass is tricking me, he thought Magic things are fond of deceptions Although the day was rather balmy, he pulled up the hood of his rough linen cloak and, blushing like blood s rich uncle, thrust the mirror into the hands of the nearest concubine, who happened to be Frol The other women gasped They rushed to relieve her of the precious object Alobar left the room. With some difficulty, for others tried to insist on accompanying him, the king excused himself from court and took the giant dog Mik for a romp outside the citadel gate Circuitously, he made his way into the woods to a spring he knew There, he fell to his knees and bent close to the water, as if to drink Smothered under a swirl of cloudy mixtures, his reflection only spasmodically came into focus Yet, among the bubbles, twigs, and jumbled particles of light and color, he saw it once a hair as white as the snow that a swan has flown over It spiraled from his right temple. Undirectedand unencumberedby thought, King Alobar s hand shot out as if to ward off an enemy s blow He yanked the hair from its mooring, examined it as one might examine a killed snake, and, after glancing over his shoulder to assure that none save Mik was his witness, flicked it into the spring, in whose waters it twisted and twirled for a long time before sinking out of sight.

Though the "creative nose" of the company, his latest ideas on evolution of a new consciousness have got his uncle, the owner, Luc Lefever, more than a bit unsettled. In Ancient India, a heinous widow commits suttee , a ritual of self-immolation.

Alobar consoles a young girl, Kudra, who was horrified at the sight of the woman attempting to escape the flames of the funeral pyre. Years later, the girl, now a young woman, arrives at a lamasery where Alobar has taken residence for two decades. The two fall in love, and as with most of Robbins' couples, their mutual libido is enormous, and their love quite like something out of a comedic fairy tale.

Jitterbug Perfume: A Novel

Kudra reveals that she recently escaped suttee herself, and the two find a common bond in their defiance of death. Alobar tells Kudra about his encounter with a mysterious group known as "The Bandaloop Doctors," who are masters of immortality. The two set off to the caves of the Bandaloop to learn immortalist practices. Through the remaining vibrations of the now empty caves, the lovers begin a daily practice of controlled breathing, regular fasting, frequent sex, and bathing in extremely hot water.

Alobar and Kudra, successful in their practices and never aging, find they are constantly on the run, moving around Europe to avoid the threat of violence against them for their heathen practices. After several hundred years, they have settled and opened a perfume shop in 17th century Paris. When a group of monks threaten their lives, they try to create a perfume to take "stinky Pan" to the New World with them. When time runs out, they attempt a sort of new transcendental meditation and become separated into different astral planes.

Alobar completes the perfume formula with Pan and they voyage to the New World. Alobar ultimately loses not only the love of his life, but the precious bottle of sweetly scented perfume.

The pair are in hiding after witnessing the murder of Bingo Pajama. But Dannyboy relays the good news that Marcel Lefever and his good friend, the thousand-year old Alobar, will be coming to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and that he will arrive shortly thereafter.

Priscilla recovers the bottle when V'lu and Madame Devalier return. Together, they learn the secret of the mysterious beets, the perfume and the story of Alobar and Kudra. In Paris, the story makes a final stop in another dimension, led by Kudra, discovering the way to immortality. The main message is summarized in the words spoken in Alobar's 8th century Bohemian dialect Erleichda, loosely translated as "lighten up".
