Bijoux Indiscrets is a french inspired sex toys and accessories brand which prioritises elegance and style alongside the manufacture of highly enjoyable sexual products. From first glance the Bijoux Indiscrets collection seduces you with glossy dark packaging with hints of luxurious gold, as well as classy script on the boxes which describes the contents.
As well as sex toys, Bijoux Indiscrets offer a selection of intimate cosmetics and bedroom extras to benefit your sex life. I was very interested in trying some of these out and was delighted to be approached by Bijoux Indiscrets to test and review a few items. I received these products free of charge in exchange for a fair and honest review.
With professional, courteous communications and a fast, discreet delivery, I was impressed right from the start. Let’s take a look at what I received:

Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint and Feather
Forget saucy sex, I want this drizzled over dessert.
Ok don’t forget the saucy sex. But the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint is putting up a strong fight to become my favourite of all the edible sex products I’ve tried. Spanning over six years of product testing, that’s some accomplishment.
Let’s start at the beginning.
I feel I must have extolled every virtue of the Bijoux Indiscrets packaging by now in my other reviews, but it’s worth mentioning once again how beautifully the products are presented. You can see what I mean from the photo gallery below.
A black feather plume, quill, or good old ‘paintbrush’ is the first thing to be removed from the box, carefully contained in protective cellophane.The glass bottle of body paint comes next, feeling solid, square and with a screw top lid. The bottle has a deeply indented concave base, which gives the appearance of receiving much more body paint than you do. This isn’t really a problem, as you only use a tiny amount each time (don’t gulp it down) and you receive 50g in the bottle which is more than adequate for the price.
Not only is it easy to use the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint, it’s exciting, sexy and feels like a new experience. Other “bedibles” (my new word for bedroom edibles) are simply drizzled on or used as sexual lubricant, but somehow the addition of a feather quill lends a sophisticated touch. Maybe it’s the old school writer in me, or perhaps my deeply ingrained love of stationery. Whatever it is, the feather touch is intense.
The stem of the feather is made from a material which feels like rubber. There’s a hollow centre to it which helps to pick up a decent quantity of body paint from the pot before writing or painting on your lover. It’s wise to take care not to get any of the paint on the feather area, as although it is possible to clean it this is a painstaking process if you don’t want to ruin it beyond future use. You will also need to dry it fairly quickly, atop a radiator or in an airing cupboard for instance. You could also use a hairdryer. The body paint is quite sticky, so removing it from the feather would be, for want of a better word, a nightmare.
Getting to the body paint itself: it’s a shock. An insanely pleasant one. Having experienced less than sexy edibles in the past, I was hesitant about trying another taste-reliant bedroom accessory. Flavoured lubricants are hit and miss enough, then there’s the cheap chalky texture of novelty boobie and willy chocolates. Not my cuppa tea. Body paint can often be sickly sweet or resemble the flavour it promises about as much as Gordon Brown resembles Audrey Hepburn.
For a body paint set under £20, the taste of this stuff is ah-may-zing. Genuinely. That incredibly rich taste you get from an overly ripe strawberry? This is its essence, beautifully packaged up and ready to complement your next sex session. Or dessert. Or slice of toast.
The colour, as you can see from the pictures, is deep and rich. I have placed some on my hand so you can see how it looks over skin. I would imagine there is a risk of this staining sheets and clothing, although I don’t have any proof of this – just call it momma’s intuition. Get naked and don’t care a jot about your sheets is my advice. Or you know, use old towels or a PVC sheet or something.
Once it’s on your partner, it doesn’t run off quickly like a looser formulation can. Sure, if you dollop a larger amount than a pea and dangle them upside down, it will run. Using the feather and writing or painting with a small amount creates a beautiful effect on the skin that you can then follow up eagerly with your tongue. This is the cherry on the cake of oral pleasure with your partner, whether full oral sex or tender loving kisses. Or should that be the strawberry on the cake?
In my opinion, care should be taken during and after using the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint. We found it important that there is a flat surface to rest the bottle on and that you don’t just ditch the used feather quill on any carpet you don’t want red marks on.
As well as offering a supremely seductive and romantic experience, the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint would make a fantastic surprise gift for a partner or lover. It screams luxury and sophistication from the first glance. Ok, maybe more of a teasing whisper than a scream.
If you’re of the inclination to get more kinky and taboo than purely romantic, you could even include the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint in faux blood play, such as in mind fuck BDSM scenes and vampire lover roleplay.
I would highly recommend this body painting set. As you can tell, I absolutely adore it. If you want to give it a go yourself, you can buy the Bijoux Indiscrets Poême Wild Strawberry Body Paint Set here for just £19.99.
One issue you may find is that the shipping comes to a quite hefty £14.35 for courier to Europe, so my advice is to make yours a worthwhile order if you do decide to purchase from Bijoux Indiscrets. You do receive free shipping on orders over €60. From what I can tell, the Bijoux Indiscrets HQ is in Spain.
