Confession time: I recently spent some time having tea with Guerlain's utterly charming, handsome (and funny with it) Thierry Wasser, and, to my complete chagrin, after an extremely pleasant, and polite, question and answer session, I - for it was, of course, I - managed to drag the conversation down so far into the gutter that Thierry ended up miming how to get into a pair of Spanx for the delight and edification of our tea-partners. I'm not proud of myself*. If, however, Guerlain ever do produce a fragrance named "La Petite Spanx Noir", I want commission.
Which brings me politely (or not - your mileage may, as they say, vary) to this:
"Close to the skin, in the very place where fragrance settles, our
lingerie lies... and this inspired Guerlain to conceive of an innovative
beauty ritual. A delicate new fragrance to spray onto lingerie,
creating a special moment of sensuality in which women are invited to
To which I say: " ...er ... does it come with a free tube of Canesten?" Now, admittedly my "special moments of sensuality" these days usually involve a jammy doughnut, a nice cup of tea, and a brief half an hour with the Hugh Jackman DVD+ of my choosing, but still ... a fragrance too far? I think I'd rather scent my drawers than my "drawers", personally. What say you?
It'll be available exclusively in Harrods from February. The perfect Valentine's gift ...
* This sentence may be a lie**
** IS a lie. It may be the single proudest moment I've ever had as a blogger. I am, however, now banned from the Connaught Hotel tea-rooms as a result.
