God is a Clean Bathroom
I hate to have to say this, but I was reminded recently of Dow aerosol bathroom cleaner, a product which invariably “graced” our bathrooms throughout my childhood. I know the smell well, although it's true that I'm working from memory, having not depressed the nozzle of one of those ozone-inimical cans now for many, many years. What, pray tell, has called up a memory best forgotten? That would be Philosophy INNER GRACE, a fragrance touted as a “one-second solution” for “grown-up girls on a spiritual journey, when you don't have time to meditate.” The unstated assumption, of course, is that the wearer partakes of the practice of meditation, and looking more closely at the bottle of perfumed lotion accompanying my 1oz bottle of the fragrance, I find a text strikingly familiar to another childhood memory.

My family was nominally religious—well, my father was but my mother wasn't—so at meals when asked to recite grace, my sisters and I obliged with the following etched-in-our-brains prayer: “God is great. God is good, and we thank him for our food. Amen.” When my dad, a true believer, said grace, it was always quite a bit more elaborate. But I, being religiously agnostic for as long as I can remember and probably even before I knew what the word 'agnostic' meant, always cleaved closely to the above text. To be perfectly frank (quoi d'autre?), I never really understood what my dad meant when he ended his otherwise appropriate to whatever was going on at the time prayer with these words: “We pray in Jesus Christ our Lord's name. Amen.”

On the INNER GRACE lotion bottle reads the following text, not at all dissimilar to the prayer I used to parrot: “God is love. God is peace. God is trust. God is joy. God is family. God is friendship. God is fearless. God is breath. God is life. God is wisdom. God is eternal. God speaks in whispers.”

Well, it seems that they forgot one: “God is a clean bathroom.” But could God truly will that we destroy His ozone layer? I really think that INNER GRACE smells hopelessly industrial and is certainly not a scent that one would have been found in God's state of nature before human beings mucked it up. IMNSHO, this is about as far from divine as a so-called perfume can possibly be. The harshness of this review reflects no more and no less than the harshness of the hopelessly misnamed INNER GRACE. Désolée.
