I love shopping for food and everyday stuff in different countries. The joy is only diminished as nowadays you find the same brands pretty much everywhere in the world. How boring! I guess I´m something like an anti-globalisation shopping addict.
Anyway, if you search hard enough and have an eye for the detail you can still find unusual items.On my roadtrip from England to Germany I had plenty of opportunity:
Mr. Propre, the well known cleaning brand in the smell "Savon de Marseille". I don´t know why I wanted to sniff this one (although I seem to be the one constantly sniffing on fabric softeners, cleaning products, shower gels, etc...) but: the most perfect of scents! Smells lemony and like a pine tree at the same time. Smells like I want to bath in it not just clean my flat. So from now on call me decadent: If I need to stock up on a universal cleaner I will always travel to France now first ;-)
