Friends, as you are getting yourself sexified to go to work/school/wherever life takes you during your day…I’d like to remind you of the words of one Kyan Douglas of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy:
"Spray, delay, and walk away (through the spray)."
You spray THREE times in the air and walk through it. Do not spray on yourself. Do not bathe in it.
I say this as someone with a sensitivity to flowery or baby powder perfumes (remember Baby Soft?!). Usually, it triggers some minor coughing with a special dose of migraine fun. Today, I enjoyed an hour long coughing/choking/gagging/hairball affair with the addition of a migraine.
I’ve spent money on perfume that’s made me ill and I could never wear. Vera Wang! Shit’s expensive!
We all wanna smell good but there is nothing worse than being in an enclosed space with someone who put all the AXE body spray on prior to rollin’ into the bar. You smell him before you see him. Ladies, you’re not exempt. You don’t need to use the Bath & Body Works Lotion and Body Spray for the same fragrance. That just amplifies the smell. Rule of thumb, if you can smell it, you’ve got on too much.
Please, think of the children and their fragile little noses. Remember the wise words of Mr. Douglas: “SPRAY, DELAY, AND WALK AWAY!!”
