I got a 1/8 lol. It was a fun quiz though. I love etymologies and stories about how things came to be. I'm even considering majoring in linguistics because I love it so much :) btw, isn't Le Beaute de Paris Sothys's other name? I remember seeing that name somewhere but I just can't figure out where.

yeah, 2/8. But what really tripped me up was Stila. I was thinking of "le stylo" -- Lancome's eyeliner. And aren't the romance languages all related anyway?
