LESLEY KEATING: To fake or not to fake, that is the question

Lynx have brought out something called a ‘daily fragrance’ body spray for men, which I can’t quite get my head around.

The fragrance is old wood and dark vanilla scented and it’s described as, ‘A subtle, woody fragrance that gives you a memorable touch. Your style refined.’

A perfect mix. Just the right amount of  lumberjack in every drop.

Now I know some advertising can be a load of old tosh, but I don’t know of any man who would particularly want to smell of wood.

Even lumberjacks don’t really want to smell of wood that much, and we know how women love them.

Also how can smelling of wood make you more refined? You’ll smell like a joiner!

n Please can someone tell me why are old fashioned barbers allowed to put black and white photos of male models from the 1960s in their shops?

As far as we know these models didn’t go to that barbers to get their hair cut, and it’s not like many people are going to want a hairstyle from 50-odd years ago, so why would you bother having these pictures there?

It’s the haircutting equivalent of the pictures you get in McDonald’s of those big tempting burgers, which never end up looking like that when you buy them.

There should be a rule that says barbers should only be allowed to show pictures of people who’ve actually had their hair cut in the shop.

n Why is it that when a loud alarm goes off in our house, we get up and out in seconds, even if we’re naked, but when one goes off in a restaurant, café, or a shop we’re in, we just sit there looking confused until someone tells us we may be in danger and to get a move on.

n You know those spotlight, those trendy little lightbulbs that kind of fit into your ceiling rather than the big ones that hang down? I was just wondering, how many of them have to blow before anyone can actually be bothered with the incredible hassle of changing them? I reckon it’s about 90 percent of them! Stuff trendy lighting.

It’s a total pain.
