Here’s Beauty School Dropout’s personal promise to you: If you wear Diptyque’s Lait Frais Body Lotion this summer you will not need to wear or pack fragrance.
Here’s a for instance – Beauty School Dropout was taking advantage of a brief window of splendid summer weather and an improbable moment of inner peace to float around a pool on a lilo. Unfortunately there were other people in the pool. What’s with there always being other people? Anyway, one of these other people suddenly piped up. “WHAT is that smell??????” The other, other people started sniffing the air which led them, in a profoundly unnerving way, towards BSD’s lilo and eventually to actually rub their rapturous noses along BSD’s limbs. And the Lait Frais had been applied hours earlier. True story.
The scent is so sensational – a kind of fresh floral (Orange Blossom) with a dash of green citrus (Petitgrain) – that BSD cannot think of a more celestial summer fragrance, and the heat from your skin will keep the fragrance subtly present for hours. Simultaneously, Orange Blossom Water tones, Organic Sweet Almond Oil soothes and regenerates and Macadamia Nut Oil nourishes. The Jo Malone London Body Crèmes are also excellent at body moisturising and ‘holding on’ to their fragrance.
And you know what? It’s just classy. That’s what it is. It’s what Grace Kellly might have done. Alcohol-laden perfume? Not this time. Just… Lait Frais.
