Who would have thought? But, then again, pourquoi pas?
It started out innocently enough when I asked my great friend Christine (pharmacist and co-owner of our dee-vine pharmacy of choice): “Do you have any lovely bath powder on your beauty shelves?”
“No,” she said. “However, we can make a bath powder for you.”
“Really, a one of a kind custom-made just-for-me, no one else in the world will have it product?”
“Yes,” she said.
Next Christine interviewed me. She takes her job verrrry seriously. She asked me the following questions:
1.) When do you take your shower, morning or evening? Answer: Evening.
2.) Do you like lavender? Answer: Yes, but not too, too much please.
3.) Do you have trouble sleeping? Answer: Yes, very often.
4.) Would you like a powder that would help you relax? Answer: If it’s possible, count me in.
5.) How about you close your eyes and I’ll let you smell oils and zests? Answer: Oui, oui, oui.

At this point Christine brought Angelique into the conversation and they gave me quick whiffs of various essences. Some were quite unpleasant even though they apparently had calming properties. I passed on those. Geranium was one.

Then, because it is a pharmaceutical preparation, under utilization on my label it says: “La soir après la douche.”
I think it works, but it may be mind over matter. My bathroom smells wonderful and the light perfume clings to my skin.
