A WORD FROM THE BUTLER

  • Posted on 26th August 2016 by Lucy

  • Somewhere in the rolling hills of the English countryside, nestled
    under a majestic canopy of oaks, the sun is gently rising over a country
    mansion whose foundations date back to shortly after the arrival of William
    the Conqueror. (Or thereabouts.)

    Two or three domestic servants are arduously at work drawing baths, opening curtains, lighting fires and
    viciously beating carpets in preparation for the first family gathering of
    the day.  The happy delight of their first
    greeting. But is there more to this scene than meets the eye? ‘Manners
    maketh the man’, but are they also useful as a tool of subterfuge?
    What really lies behind the good manners of Britain’s aristocracy?
     
    Soon it is time to find out…A VERY BRITISH AFFAIR.

    • How Too Choose?

    • I have so many 'favourites' it's hard to choose one. I do wish there was a line in bath oils, body lotions and deodorants in more of the lines. I like to layer the fragrance.
