    Give your Co-Worker two smellies from your collection because you are soooooo tired of smelling the same thing everyday (They only owned one.....Imagine) ....AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH....LOLOLOLOLOL

    This actually happened....They were told..."Please do not wear what you have on today...Tomorrow."..........

    Fragrance On,

    I think that makes me a better shopper. The $200.00 bottle of cologne? The $15.00 EDP?

    or when you tell the idiots at work that you're wearing Aqua di Gio when they ask because you can't be arsed with the cretinous conversation that would follow if you told them what you were actally wearing (that they had "never heard of it", or perhaps they would just stare with a puzzled look on their face that makes you want to slap them)....for example.

    ... walk along Grafton Street, the main shopping center of Dublin, Ireland, and have to write the name of Creed on a paper because no single SA in any perfumeshop even heard it and wouldn't understand what you actually want.

    I completely agree, it's nerve-wracking having to pick just ONE scent!

    Ditto this! Or maybe this is more "You know you have too many bottles of fragrances when...".

    Creed? I thought that was the first thing new sniffers picked up here.

    You're on a work related road trip with a good friend and co-worker, driving through the night and stopping at a very clean highway rest stop. You're at separate urinals and he remarks, geez, they really keep this place smelling clean, out here in the sticks. You know you're the snob you are when you reply, "Yeah, and they're clearly very into the restroom cleaning agents with heavy doses of heliotrope. Geez is right."

    I heard heliotrope jokes at the office for a month.

    -When someone asks you "mmm, what's that you're wearing, it's nice!" and you answer "pfff, you wouldn't understand."

    -When you correct everyone's French for the proper pronunciation of fragrance names, even when the names are in english like Silver Mountain Water, and when you say the names of all your fragrances, including the English ones with an affected Parisian accent, and also when you run around in general speaking in a fake Parisian accent...

    -When you can't decide which fragrance to wear to your morning shower.

    Or when you get mad when you're with friends passing through the fragrance counters in department stores and they pick out something you don't like and you say to them "dude, get this instead, it's soo much better.."

    ^True story, thats why I don't go shopping with them anymore when I wanna buy something (same with clothes too now).

    ...when you are able to identiphy mandarin, bergamot, vetiver and sandalwood smelling a fragance. That happened to me today when smelling an Allure sample. I am a newbie, and I have only five fragances!
    Yesterday I was talking to a friend, and I told her I could not wear Agua de Sandalo wearing a dark coloured shirt, and she looked at me like ...what the hell are you saying? I just feel scared of this new "hobby"

    ... look with unforced disdain at people when they say, "You smell really good. That reminds me of a cologne I have," knowing fully well there's no way they could own L'Artisan

    Everyone on here laughs when they hear "AdG/Fierce/Drift is the BEST cologne ever." from drunk girls at a party. And drunk guys. Like last night for example, when I somehow dropped the bomb that I have 51 fragrances (Not colognes), and one of my friends decided it was his solemn duty to tell me what the best ones were. Can you guess who passed out in the car from over-intoxication, and who didn't?

    Someone asks what cologne you're wearing, and when they don't recognize "Black Aoud by Montale", they feel it necessary to say "Well, my boyfriend used to wear this cologne that nobody had ever heard of, and it smelled really good too." As if that makes it OK for me to wear Black Aoud. It's like when somebody says "Well, I knew a Black/Gay/Atheist/Muslim guy in high school." And that's supposed to make it OK that you're Black/Gay/Atheist/Muslim. STFU.

    You get more concernicus than anyone else in the van when they pull out the can of Axe and start spraying people as a joke. You scream and start punching people. Then you drive Drew to the ER to get stitches....








    And you still haven't apologized.

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.
