Follow the scent of the legend of Conrad the barber...
The barber, Conrad by name, knows the most beautiful beards and moustaches in the village and... the most beautiful teeth, you'll understand why.
Every morning, even before he drinks his first coffee, he takes out his rag to shine his blue-white-red sign. He likes to see the children pointing at it, amazed to find a "strong candy" sign that is still turning! There's no question of taking Conrad by surprise, he's always in an even and cheerful mood.
An immutable plaster bust, representing the famous Menick, the barber of the sportsmen, thrones on its pedestal. It is the only face that doesn't make the potato lamb's lettuce go, because at barber Conrad's, you should know that those who didn't know each other when they came in know each other when they go out! We give each other "Salut Poilu" and "Aille, mon Tondu" to who better! As long as we're fooling around, even hitting each other on the thigh and even on the neighbour's thigh!
People swallow for miles to come and get their favourites trimmed, shave the coconut, bare their necks, but most of all, to hear the drinking stories standing up and hear the surrounding laughter. Thin skins, as well as thick ones, Conrad shaves them all with a cabbage patch. Because his hand is secure, he rarely gets hurt. However, don't venture to tickle him, or make him laugh too much, it's at your own risk!
When someone tells him a "too good one", after laughing at him, Conrad has to take out his alcohol, known as "rubbing", to disinfect the scars. But what a fire on his cheeks, what a burning pain for his customers for having sinned through the stuffing! They have even gone so far as to avoid making Conrad laugh to prevent his hand from shaking when shaving them closely.
But Conrad likes to laugh too much to contemplate shaving without getting a laugh. One day, he challenged the village apothecary to come up with a special, foaming soap that gently disinfects. The apothecary, who knew as much about beards as he did about beards, went to work on a new science, adding antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal essential oils, ideal for repairing and disinfecting small cuts, as well as large ones.
And, since that day, we've been laughing out loud again at Conrad the Barber.
