Once upon a time, back in the 90’s, when it seemed like Jean Rochefort was much younger by not a lot, he starred in one of my favorite French films, The Hairdresser’s Husband.
As with many French films I’ve watched, The Hairdresser’s Husband contains its fair deal of sex, passion, romance, love, and some sadness.
The story revolves around a 12 year old version of Jean Rochefort’s character who falls in love with his hairdresser. Later on in life he romances and marries a similiar such hairdresser. Obviously his wet dreams about his childhood crush have carried well into his adult ones. And so begins an odd romance….!
Without giving too much away there’s a scene in the movie that showcases the characters having a drink of cologne and aftershave because they don’t have any liquor. It’s morbid, comical, and it always made me laugh.
Funny enough, leave it to Lush, to create a perfume based on this foreign film and dub it the Hairdresser’s Husband. I’m surprised that Lush didn’t make it edible as well so we could wear it and drink it as well.
But sorry, no reenacting fabulously memorable movie moments here, this is simply for wearing not drinking.
Made with oranges, lemons and neroli it sounds like something I would be comfortable pouring over ice and drinking up although I don’t recommend it.
Lush doesn’t really specify the scent as being feminine or masculine. Knowing Lush’s track record with some of their other colognes for men I can safely say I’d probably use and love this even if it did smell masculine.
Unfortunately Lush doesn’t offer in a sample size so I’ll just have to commit to a full size and hope for the best.
I’m sure it’ll be amazing, I don’t doubt it.
