Lucia van der Post
Just in time for Christmas, that wonderful old French company Cire Trudon, which used to make candles for the court at Versailles, has come up with a very jolly notion – perfumed stink bombs.
The idea is that scent can be fun as well as gorgeous. These Boules Puantes are intensely perfumed so that the moment the glass phial is broken the air is suffused with one of six exotic scents. They come in a pretty gold tin holding 10 “bombs”, price £29.
