The word philtrum has 2 main meanings:
1: noun. The little groove between the bottom of your nose and your top lip. I have no clue what it is there for, but now you know what it is called.
2: verb. The art of performing oral sex while shaving. This originated because some kid at my school with a dirty mind thought it was 'full trim'. The term has since caught on and is now widely recognised.
1: You:"hi Steph! How you been?
Steph:"philtrum" *pokes your philtrum. walks away*

2: You:"hey sweety!"
Boyfriend:"her my giiiirl. Guess what I learnt today?"
