|"That had better not clash with my Geranium pour Monsieur, lady!"|
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought their toothy grins, careful grooming and game-for-anything graciousness to the recent revelries in the tiny South Pacific nation of Tuvalu. But did they pack the right perfume? As one of the perks of being long-distance members of the Tuvalu royal family, William and Kate were invited to partake in the tradition of spraying fragrance on the grass-skirted hula dancers gathered at the celebration.
It seems they were caught on the hop by this "spritz 'em if you love 'em" custom, but thanks to a last-minute scramble by one of their aides, Kate and Wills averted diplomatic disaster with a sudden bottle of Paul Smith London for Men. Well, at least it was British...ish (as much as a coconut scent can be). But with a little planning, they could have done better. Read my full article in the Guardian for my best-of-British alternate recommendations, including the spray paint blue of Wode Paint by Boudicca.
|Wode Paint caused an international incident, but at least everyone smelled good.|
Fumies, any suggestions for what fragrance Kate might have showered on the dancers?
