What Women Want

In Design, Film on May 13, 2012 at 10:25 am

What is it that women most desire? Ask Chaucer’s protagonist in the Wife of Bath and the answer is sovereignty over their husbands. Me? I’ll settle for marital equality and the right to a good, hot bath. I’m married to a man who gets this—and really good presents. For Mother’s Day this year I unwrapped a gorgeous natural linen bath towel I’ve been coveting from Brahms Mount.

Along with some delicious Malin+Goetz Bergamot Body Wash, which foams up nicely in the bath and smells like Earl Grey tea.

In fact, maybe I’ll have a cup of that, too, tonight while soaking in the 1920s claw foot tub in our guest bathroom under the watchful eye of Julie Christie in a 1960s vintage poster from Darling—a movie about a woman who cannot ever be satisfied but wears really, really good clothes. Happy Mother’s Day!
