So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Scent of a Man

Guys (and ladies, too) ... listen up.

If your cologne/perfume announces your arrival three seconds before you actually show up, you're putting it on way TOO strong.

And, if I can smell you in line behind me at the pharmacy (and you're two feet behind me), it is too strong.

If the smell lingers in the area for seconds and minutes after you left, you're definitely putting it on way too strong.

I've had this happen several times lately. Just adding to how awful the situation is, I'm congested and can't smell very well right now anyway. I had a guy at the CVS almost smell me out of the store. He was in the same aisle at one point and then I knew he was in line behind me when I smelled him again. Your expensive cologne no longer smells appealing to me when it is assaulting my senses from several feet away.

Remember the RGX Body Spray commercials with the hot chick? She is right, guys. We don't want to smell you across the room. We want to catch a whiff when we're shaking hands or close to your neck in an embrace. That is when it is sexy.

Just something to think about.

    One more thing... Body sprays are NOT an acceptable alternative for a daily shower. Twice Daily showers for you teenage types. Y'all can funk up a room real quick with some nasty B.O. pong hiding underneath your AXE body spray.

    Good post Mom. This is one of my pet peeves also. One of my most favorite lines ever heard; "Nice scent - must you marinade in it?"
