A Sense For Beauty, Part V: Hearing

A Sense For Beauty, Part IV: Hearing

OK, so the way that your compact snaps shut, or the sounds that your atomizer makes may not have the same effect on your senses as the way your body lotion feels on your skin, or the way a smoky eye makes you look sexy, but don't kid yourself, hearing does play a part on the the beauty products that you choose to purchase.

For example, Estee Lauder and Lancôme have both created a snug-fitting lipstick cap that makes a clicking noise when it's closed. This gives you the assurance to know that the cap won't fall off and cause any mess inside of your makeup case or purse.

Similarly, music is often played in the background at spas to help create a calm atmosphere in which to relieve stress and anxiety. Conversely, fast music is typically played at salons to create an upbeat, energetic environment. Do you have a favorite type of music that you play when you perform your at-home spa treatments?

When I'm going out at night I have to play fast paced music I can sing along to while getting ready. It pumps me up.

The click of a Chanel lipstick case while Dave Brubeck's "Blue Rondo Alla Turk" plays in the background is simply unbeatable.

Baths get Norah Jones or something equally soothing along with the essential glass of wine. Showers get peppy Stevie Wonder ish music. Blowouts get the SATC soundtrack!!!!! My best friend and I always have The Devil Wears Prada going on in the background when getting ready to go out! I love the little click of my YSL compact closing. It signals I'm done getting ready.

I'm not quite sure and I don't give myself bubble baths often enough, but right now I would probably choose music like Donovan, Syd Barrett, Broadcast, Pram and maybe the soundtrack from Amelie and also Georges Delerue's music for movies like Jules Et Jim

I observed that in boutiques and other shops in the mall, the rhythm and tempo of the background music determines the pace of the shopper browsing the products. Slow day and need shoppers to stay in shop longer to fill the emptiness? Play slow R&B or classical. Need people to get out of your shop faster so it's not so congested? Play fast-paced rock or pop. Need to discourage people from going back to your store again? Play crappy music at TOP VOLUME. Also incorporate overwhelming suffocating fragrance for general atmosphere. (This is for you, Hollister at Eaton Centre.)

When I take a bubble bath, I like to play nature music, like a rainstorm or ocean sounds. It's just so soothing. When I blow out my hair, I like to play upbeat music that I can sing along to or move with the beat. Hey, anything to make such a mundane task a little fun! ;)
