The vampiric message here is even more subtle, though the enchained skull might give the game away. After all this vampire costume choker appears to depict nothing more sinister than two fairies delivering a shining Swarovski crystal.
Until, of course, you look again at the name of this vampire choker. La Fleur de Baudelaire, the flower of Baudelaire; and who was he?
Charles Baudelaire, a 19th century Gothic poet, and he did indeed give us flowers. Les Fleurs du Mal - the Flowers of Evil - a collection of verses deemed so diabolical, that most were banned in his native France until 1949.
And amongst them was the boast of a vampire seductress turned into stanzas. In Metamorphosis of a Vampire - a poem penned in 1857 - we find the truth behind this choker's 'fairies':
"My lips are moist and yielding, and I know the way
To keep the antique demon of remorse at bay.
All sorrows die upon my bosom...
...Upon his bed that groans and sighs luxuriously
Even the impotent angels would be damned for me!"
Beware this Gallic vampire queen. Even the angels have been subverted to her will.
