At 9.54 our mole in Zoflora contacted us.
(Yes, quite a good starting line, that. Quite blase. “What? Oh a mole? Yes, we have a mole inside Zoflora. No Biggie. Haven’t you got one?”)
Our phone trilled proud; a new text message. Normally, we ignore them. Our children’s school sends out text messages in a manner which suggests that someone has just learnt how to use the text message sending machine, and that that someone is very proud indeed of this. Overly proud. It’s like a toddler on speed; so many words.
But some sixth sense prompted us to look. We nearly fell off our seat. (Mind you, that is because our seat is rickety, not because of the news)
In a Bleach and Tonic world exclusive we can announce that shortly Zoflora will announce a new fragrance.
A risky move from Zoflora, no question about that. A very, very risky move.
Grapefruit is the most devisive of fruits and Zoflora are at risk of alienating the (sensible) half of their loyal following who think that grapefruits taste like fermented lizards piss. Not the sort of fragrance we want airily drifting around the house incase a visitor should call.
On the other hand, it’s quite a cool thing too. (“What? Oh that? Yeah, Pink Grapefruit. Exclusive new scent from Zoflora. Rare? Haven’t you got one?”) Quite a good way to open a conversation with a visitor. Let them know who’s boss
Anyway, we’ll keep you updated as soon as we get a review unit.
Remember, you read it here first. Our first world exclusive. We’re acutally quite proud
(“What? Oh a world exclusive?”) etc
