What do you get when you cross the elegance and splendour of Scarlett Strallen et. al in She Loves Me with the sumptuous scents of Penhaligon’s? As we discovered: the sweet smell of love.
In our tribute to the lavish and opulent world of perfume advertisements, we visited the revered parfumerie chain with the stars of the hit Menier Chocolate Factory show; the magnificent results you can see for yourself in the video above.
She Loves Me centres on Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie – and aren’t exactly the best of friends. However, they have something in common. They both rapturously write to romantic pen pals. Despite the anonymity of their secret admirers, they live for the love letters that they exchange and the day they will finally meet.
The wonderful love story has been the basis for the films The Shop Around The Corner and You’ve Got Mail, and plays at the Menier Chocolate Factory until 4 March.
You can book your tickets to She Loves Me through the venue’s website.
