  French style/Geisha style
by Geisha_Girl

Edith Kunz, the author of the recently published "Fatale: How French Women Do It," went on a quest to find the answer to a most crucial question: What is the secret behind the power of seduction of French women.

Ms Kunz plunges into French history to find the key to this powerful and yet mysterious power.

She revisits troubadours who were the first to codify the rules of courtship, to introduce a ritual into the relationship between men and women, in the Middle Ages. She ends with the modern era, the era of Catherine Deneuve.

The historian of seduction examines every aspect of the French woman's charm: her diet, the culture she is raised in, the ideology that shapes her, the decor of her bedroom, her role as wife and mistress, the issue of age and what she calls "the art of brilliance" which Frenchwomen use to dazzle French men.

What's the secret of French women?

One word: confidence. They are confident in themselves, confident with their age, their body, with their power.

They are sensuous even at work. They charmed men to death, and it is fun for both. It looks like a lot of sensuousness.

Hmmmm.......I suppose a "Geisha" can learn a lot from that (or vice versa perhaps?) ;-))
