No, I’m serious…
This was the highlight of the In-Flight Shop magazine on a Singapore Airlines flight to Mumbai. It was an ‘exclusive’, I was seriously tempted, but was forced to be sensible by my long-suffering husband. Still, I took photos, which I present here for your entertainment.
The product, Prends-Moi (which is French for ‘Take Me’), is supposed to stimulate fat burning through lipolytic action. You fancy a naughty snack, you spray it on, endorphins are released which make you feel happy and you lose the urge to snack. This is the principle of neurocosmetics, or so the advert claims.
I do not pretend to understand the chemistry behind this, and very much doubt that a quick spray of perfume would deter me from raiding the fridge if I really wanted to. I would also imagine that using it 4 or 5 times a day as recommended would swiftly use up your S$69 pair of 50ml bottles, and buying more would leave you with a lot less cash to spend on edible treats.
But it would be lovely to be proved wrong, so if anyone out there actually bought this and believes that it works – please let me know!
