Eau de Canal

Here's an interestingly-named perfume I found in a local budget shop. "Ecluse" means "lock" as in "sluicegate", I can't imagine why the makers thought anyone might want to smell like one, or what sort of romantic image such a name might be expected to conjure up!

Mind you there is a better-known French perfume called "Calandre", which sounds rather nice but actually means "radiator grill"; I understand that the reference is supposed to be to a high class car like a Rolls Royce.
