    A sales assistant in Boots pronounced Guerlain "Jerlane" today. Now I'm no expert at French pronunciation but I thought this was pretty funny! Have you heard any funny ones?

    I bought the edt 30ml today, unsniffed as there were no testers. I love Guerlain, so I expected to enjoy this, but I HATE it. Shame I can't return it. :(
