From the journal of Mme Celia H Faucons, Epicurean explorer, 7 June, 1897: After much preparation (and a startling amount of bribery) I made my way to the Neath to visit the vanished city of London. After nearly four decades, she and her denizens seem to be adjusting to life beneath what is now referred to as "the Surface". In terms of climate, the change in location surprisingly did not affect the fog. The air is as cool and damp as it had been when I visited shortly before its exit from the face of the earth. However its current scent could be described as notably earthy, which I cannot say is out of place for a subterranean city. The almost-fungal bouquet intermingles with the typical odors from the busy port city and makes for a fragrance that is unique to post-Fall London. It is a dark aroma, with hints of peat, malt, saline, and roasting street fare. It is a perfume that settles into you and resists erasure, both from the garments you wear and the memories you hold.
