audio review : a song from Pretty Woman : He Sleeps

This is the music playing as Pretty Woman Julia Roberts (Vivian) discovers Richard Gere (Edward) sitting asleep on the bed. She kisses him, which leads not just to sex but the metaphorical making of “love”. It’s a nice scene and a good movie. The song is even better.

It, a homestyle orchestral ballad composed by James Newton Howard, in fact deserves a more timeless presentation. The visuals of director Garry Marshall and cinematographer Charles Minsky will become dated, but this beautiful; forget Pretty; music will remain exquisite.

Rosen Moisturizing Soap : White Tea And Aloe Vera

Rosen Moisturizing Soap : White Tea And Aloe Vera

You’d think a soap “exclusively created for guests of” Rosen Hotels And Resorts would be mild and unobtrusive, but this is anything but. The bar looks pleasant enough and the lather is okay, but it smells like a mix of lemons, pepper and wood burning under a chimney. It also makes your skin feel sticky, which is weird.

Rosen Oatmeal Soap : White Tea And Aloe Vera

Rosen Oatmeal Soap : White Tea And Aloe Vera

This soap is “exclusively created for guests of” Rosen Hotels And Resorts. The Cleansing bit is redundant; what soap doesn’t cleanse; and the scent is surprisingly pungent, but it’s fancy stuff. There’s actual (visible/feelable) Oatmeal embedded in the bar, which, beside looking like it fell on a dirty floor, is fun to use.
