    Default Has anyone ever told you that you smell like this?

    I stopped by my parents house after doing some shopping today. Of course I stopped by a few of the fragrance counters and tried out a few things. Somehow I ended up taking home POLO explorer and being dissapointed in Tom Ford for men. Go figue. Now my parents are a little older, but my mother says to me right off "You smell like a french whore". I didn't realize that french whores had a particular smell as oppossed to say american ones. Anyhow I had a good laugh and asked her if she had ever had a french whore to compare my odor to.

    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    I've smelled French whores and they actually smell pretty bad.

    Never!

    And I hate the expression....when I read it on the websites I am always tempted to say "you should know" to the writer. It usually means a perfume the speaker does not care for. Lame, indeed.

    One member here told the story that he had that expression directed at him and retorted: "I'm not French!"
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Whenever I go home to visit my parents and I'm wearing fragrance, my dad always jokingly says "you smell like a French whore house".

    LOL- that was quick!
    The expression is also known where I live but never used within hearing distance of the wearer, least your own...son! Paris has been the city of love and liberties for centuries, thankfully also during the Victorian era! There is a lot of wishful thinking hidden in the mockery about French lifestyles .

    Some people have this as their stock remark directed to whoever around them (usually male) is wearing a fragrance other than their own Eau de Faecale Matteure.
    Current favourites: Silver Mountain Water - Terre d'Hermes - Erolfa - Fou d'Absinthe - Sequoia

    My mother is not a fragrance person. As a matter of fact she uses unscented detergent and deodorant. Something in certain scents plugs up her nose. She was probably half joking when she told me. However my father did tell me he thought something was burning also.

    The same applies to my mother. But when we are together -unfortunately it's too rare- and I put on my Bulgari PH she never fails to make the remark :'how good you smell!'
    She brought from Dublin my GIT and when I sprayed it immediately she didn't say a word...

    My friend's mother was ironing his shirt and said that he and his clothing smells like a whore. Then she went on explaining that whores wear different frags every day, they don't have one particular smell. we had neat discussion about smells of some other people that day.

    In German, a friend of mine once told me, the expression is "Du riechst wie ein siebstockiges Freudehaus." Literal teranslation: "You smell like a seven-storey whorehouse."

    Yes! Or ..'siebenstoeckiges Hurenhaus' - more common than the proverbial French whore. It's of Berlin origin, I believe, and from a time long gone. Then such houses were part of bourgois metropolitan life (Imperial days of 1870 - 1920). This expression, if accompanied by a grin, is mostly meant as a compliment among Metros & Company

    Well, back in my raging hormones teenage days the times I was going out literally drenched in screaming juices (who among us didn't have those days after all? lol) I heard this expression but referred to far more local whores than the french ones...lolol

    French whore? Nope.

    But I have been told that I smelled like a dryer sheet. Bounty to be exact. Not sure how they got that idea from TdH.

    I suppose that's better than smelling like a whore in church.
