 Lesson35:   香水 Perfume (法国)

原文:

K:Katherine     J: Jeanne

 

K:Whats that incredibly beautiful smell?

J:Thats my new perfume.I bought it in France.

K:The French werent the first to use perfume, though.It was the Egyptians, they used it in a pre-love making ritual.I guess they wanted everyone to smell nice. They used frankincense.

J:They may have been the first, but they are certainly not the ost famous. The French beat everyone when it comes to perfume.Did you know that perfume is mkde from twenty two percent essential oils?

K:I didnt know that ,no. Thats not the highest percentage, though. Eau de parfum is made from twenty three percent essential oils.  It says so on the bottle.

J:Eau de toilette is eight to fifteen percent essential oils and eau de cologne is just five percent. I always go for the alcohol free eau de parfum, Ive found it lasts longer.

K:But theres one with even less essential oils than eau de cologne. Its called eau fraiche, it only has one to three percent essential oils.

J:That one must be only for those who crave super subtlety. It would be too light for me,as I said.

K:There must be many different types of scent, I dont think Ive ever found two perfumes that smell the same.

J:There are Floral, Oriental, Floriental, Chypre, Green Marine and Fruit. I usually wear a floral fragrance with notes of lemon. Its a fresh smell, which reminds me of summer.

K:Where thould we put perfume?I think most women spray it on their nedls and wrists, but there must be a apecial rule about where you should spray it.

J:Actually, there is.It should be applied to the bodys pressure points which are inside theelbows and wrists, the backs of the knees and the neck. After spraying we shoukd never rub our wrists together, it crushes the fragrance.

K:I think themost famous perfume is Chanel No.5,even Marilyn Monroe wore it. She even put it on before she went to bed?

J:Chanel No.5 is definitely the most popular,one bottle sells every thirty seconds.

K:My goodness? Thats a lot of perfume.

K:   凯瑟琳        J: 珍妮

 

K: 这是什么味?香得出奇。

J: 是我新买的香水。在法国买的。

K: 不过最先保用香水的并不是法国人,而是埃及人。他们在示爱仪式之前使用。我猜他们是想让大家都闻起来舒服些。他们用的是乳香。

J: 埃及人可能是最先使用的,但肯定不是最有名的。说到香水,没人能与法国人相比。你知道吗?香水是由22%的香精油制造而成的。

K: 这个我还真不知道。渤,这不是浓度最高的香水。浓香水是由23%的香精油制造而成的,瓶子上就是这么写的。

J: 淡香水是由8%15%的香精制成的。古龙水只有5%的香精油。我一直喜欢不含酒精的香水,我发现这样的香水味道能保留更长久。

K: 但还有一种香水比古龙水的浓度还低,叫做清淡香水,只含有1%3%的香精油。

J: 那种类型的香水肯定只有那些喜欢特别淡雅味道的人才用。对我来说,我觉得香味可能太淡了。

K: 香水肯定有很多种不同的香味,我想我还没有发现有味道一模一样的两种香水。

J: 有花香、东方调、花香东方调香、柏香、海洋植物香和水果香。我经常用植物型带点柠檬味的香水。它味道清新,让我想起夏天的感觉。

K: 我应该怎么用香水呢?我想大多数女性都把香水喷洒在脖子和手腕上,但是往哪儿喷香水肯定还有些特别的讲究。

J: 是的,确实有。香水应该洒在人体压力点位置,如胳膊肘和手腕内侧,膝盖和脖子后部。喷洒香水后,不要摩擦两个手腕,因为那会使香味消退。

K: 我想最有名的香水是香奈儿5号,连玛丽莲·梦露都用它。她甚至连睡觉前都要喷洒。

J: 香奈儿5号的确是最流行的,每半分钟就能卖掉一瓶。

K: 我的天啊,那要卖掉很多了。
