In the 18th Century, there was a French composer and conductor named Jean-Baptiste Lully. ÊIn the baroque era, instead of the short batons we know today, conductors would use large, wooden staves to beat out the time. ÊOne evening, Lully was conducting a concert and brought the heavy staff down on his foot and seriously injured himself. ÊThe wound developed gangrene which spread throughout his body, and within weeks he was dead.
Now donât get me wrong, I LOVE Gucci pour homme. ÊItâs positively one of my favorites. The woods and incense are intoxicating and I find it perfect for blowing away the morning cobwebs. Ê But I am worried that some morning, when Iâm fresh out of the shower and slippery and still somewhat bleary-eyed, Iâm going to reach for my HEAVY bottle of Gucci -- a heavy bottle with rather sharp edges! -- and I will drop it on my foot and undergo a fate similar to Lullyâs. ÊThis worry gnaws at me, and has prevented me from fully enjoying my bottle of Gucci. ÊYes, the bottle is beautiful and its heft is part of its beauty, but I think there is danger here as well. ÊPlease, if youâre going to use Gucci, make sure your grip is very secure and be very careful.
