Dope on a rope

I totally need, want and desire this scented wax doorknob hanger-ma-jig from Diptyque.  It's French, nearly useless and the object of my wanton desire.  The fragrance is a blend of black currant, fig leaves, iris, violet and smoky woods.  Which is exactly what I believe Colin Firth to smell like in bed.

Mmmmm... it's Firth-y.

I came across the very same thing flipping through a magazine at the hair salon! - I think it's a sign that I must get one

The mad woman behind the blog said...

Yes please! And make it a double!

It wouldn't be weird to wear it under my clothes, would it? Or only if I kept my nose buried in my shirt all day?

This post has so many of the reasons why I love your blog: prurience, good taste (both the product and Firth), imagination, hilarity (I totally LOL'd) -- and it's educational. Who knew there was such a thing as a scented wax doorknob hanger? Brilliant. Now I have to have one, too!

Oh, Raina, your brain just functions an echelon or so above most, and I DIG THAT so much!
(could dig a bit of 'ol Firth, too!)

Kathy said...

And...if you put it under your sheets...you won't get the "jimmy legs"......k

susie q said...

Yes, FIrth-y goodness. Love it.

you crack me up. and firth-y might be my favorite scent.

Raina Cox said...

Mad woman - I would totally do that.

Stephanie - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

Julie - Diptyque would be a lovely addition. Be warned - the line has requires a hefty opening order.

Dave - Oh, you.

Alison - Oh, you. Too.

Kathy - Oddly enough, I actually have the jimmy legs. It's damn annoying.

Just think how many more they could sell if they marketed it as "Firthy"!

I needed this whilist I was on the plane the other day. Someone behind me forget to adhere to basic hygiene etiquette.
