In Beauty & Health

The discontinuation of me (Roger & Gallet)

Of all the first things to blog about, I envisioned it being about a restaurant I just so happened upon or my latest trip to a fabulous 5-star hotel, but none of those things can compare to the thing I think we all cherish most: our health. More to the point, our bodies and how we smell! Well at least, some of us have the pleasure of having clean water to bath in and an ample supply of beauty products to leave us smelling and dare I say looking good. Therefore, I ask “have you ever wondered what happiness really smells like? And no I am not talking about how Benjamin Pratt or Sarah Jessica Parker’s body smells fresh from the shower; although… I am however talking about a smell so fresh and clean it brings not only a smile to your entire face but in the words of my husband, “you smell sexy!”

May I introduce to you “Gingembre” from the genius minds of French perfumiers Roger & Gallet. If I’d know back in high school that one day I’d be wanting to get down on bended knee to ask these two, please please not discontinue what has become my signature scent, I would have paid more attention. Instead all I can say is, “Ferme ta bouche” (shut your mouth) because this was all my French teacher would say to me, “Ferme ta bouche Jacqueline” my chosen French name as I still very much disliked my birth name. Anyhow, Roger & Gallet if you can hear me, I am so happy to not Ferme ta bouche and beg of you; please please (S’il vous plaît) ok two things I can say in French, don’t discontinue Gingembre. I have driven, walked and bicycled all over the city of Munich buying up all the Gingembre products I can find. With desperation asking the clerk, to check in back one last time. One positive thing about all this sadness is that since it is being discontinued, I’ve been able to purchase it at 50% off and while I do love most of their products, I have often had to forego buying lunch in lieu of walking out of the store with my Roger & Gallet mini shopping bag. The days of fighting my sister-in-law (I won Pam) for her stash are over. I hesitated in writing this for fear of others finding a secret hide away of Gingembre stock somewhere out of my grasp. However, I have learned that it makes me happy when I can smell happiness on others because if we all have learned one thing, it is that happiness does make the world go round. @Roger & Gallet, if by chance you are cleaning out leftover stock of Gingembre, you would make me the happiest of ladies if you would just package it right up and send it to Woodluv Diaries front door. Merci beaucoup, oh my french teacher would be so proud. Woodluv Diaries luvs Roger & Gallet! Remember to Liebesüss/ Love sweet
