We’ve had slimming trainers, books that make you thin and ‘skinny patches’.
Well, here we go again!
France have beaten the rest of the world to it and designed their very own product that promises to suppress appetite and help you lose weight, AND it has a 6000 person waiting list in the UK!
‘What is it?!’ You ask with pure anticipation, that’s if your excitable eyes haven’t already skipped down the page to sneak the answer first.
It’s perfume of course!
The world’s ‘first weight loss fragrance’ is designed to slim with pleasure and is based on ‘extensive aroma-therapeutic research’ – so, well, it must work!
So how does it suppress your appetite?
Does it smell like a bin?
The instructions are to spray it generously in the morning and re-apply when you feel the need to snack and any cravings occur. It focuses on a ‘pleasurable experience’ rather than attach itself to the negative connotations of being hungry. The ‘slimming complex’ formulated with caffeine, carnitine and spirulina extract activates the two key enzymes directly involved in lipolysis (or in normal-speak: fat degradation).
There are top notes of bergamot, mandarin and grapefruit – which obviously combine to create a very fruity and fresh scent. [Perhaps it’s smells so sweet it puts you off anything, ever.?]
It’s called Prends Moi and if you want it, like I said, you’ll have to get in line behind the 6,000 optimistic people of the UK. It is £29.99 and can be found in The Fragrance Shop. So, what are you waiting for?
Results have shown that 75% of people it was tested on ‘felt the perfume limited the need to snack’, while 73% ‘felt a feeling of pleasure’.
So, it must be right… right?
Well, until we get a whiff of it for ourselves, we’ll never know.
What do you think?
