« I am in favor of maintaining the French habit of hand-kissing; after all, you have to start somewhere,» Sacha Guitry, French cineast.
1) When to do a hand-kissing
Nowadays, the hand-kissing is reserved to a conservative upper class or diplomats.
It is also still used in countries like Malaysia, Bruneï or Indonesia. There it is a common way to greet older people of both genders, primarily the closest relatives (both parents, grandparents, and uncles or aunts) and teachers.
The “hand-kissing” is chic but requires courtesy, restraint, and elegance.
It is never practiced in the street, or a public place: cafe, restaurant, opera, cinema, beach, etc.
It must be avoided with foreigners who are not used to it, except those who used to the international etiquette.
During a reception, a man can only do a hand-kissing to the mistress of the house, and the elderly ladies.
Umbert specifies that it can only be practiced with married women.
It is not appropriate for a gloved hand, except the one of a dear friend.
2) How to do a hand-kissing
The technique :
- The man must not raise the outstretched lady hand towards him. The lady gives her hand.
- The man must bow a little, and touch the hand he gently takes.
- He does not kiss the hand but touches it with his chin.
- The kiss must be fast, brief.
Don’t forget to train with a friend; it should be fun!
Umbert is looking forward to traveling again to these significant international events.
New York often misses him, but Paris is more into his heart.
What must be remembered: remember the technique, so when you go to an event where you see the others doing the hand-kissing, you will be able to do it.
