Scent Sense

For those of you women who think that it's alluring to leave a trail of your overly-perfumed self in your wake...it's not. Whomever recommended that you take a bath in your favorite eu de toilet should be properly reprimanded; and if this is a tactic that you've taken on solely, please stop immediately! You only want to leave a hint of your scent, not in your wake, but to those who are in your immediate personal space. If you're unsure of what constitutes "personal space", hold your arms out at shoulder height and spin around. That is your radius/circumference. Keep your smelly smells there, please.

I, along with others, are not impressed with your choice of cologne. We are equally unimpressed with the brand or the cost. The only thing we do notice is that we're still gasping for fresh air long after you've left the elevator, office, supermarket check out line, _________fill in the blank, etc. Just because you believe you have good taste in scent selection, word to the wise, everyone does. Just as everyone thinks they have good taste and a sense of humor. We do not all possess these attributes. Your overpowering scent takes on a life of its own, clinging to any fabric your fellow members of society are wearing, or the piece of furniture you've resided on.

Do yourself and the rest of us a favor...after showering and moisturizing, spritz one, I REPEAT *ONE* mist of perfume into the air directly in front of you and proceed to walk through it. That is the proper amount needed. That's it. No more, no less. Please help stop the madness!

Peace.

One of my strongest pet peeves! Why do women douse themselves with perfume BEFORE coming to dance class at 6:00 am or 8:00 am?

One club I belonged to had a "rule" in place, that women could not wear perfume to class as other women were allergic to some scents. I wish my current club had the same policy.

They're probably the same women who come to class with a full face of makeup and their hair done too. That's a good rule your former club had.
