    "You have enough of those f***** perfumes already. Are you turning gay or something?"
    -My friend to me at the perfume counter.

    Later we went to the bar and I chugged downed a glass of Guiness.

    The stuff is awesome

    I forgot to add it's an in-joke between me and him, Guiness = manly beer blah blah blah

    But on topic, that little anecdote is the only time I got talked out of buying a perfume. I usually talk myself out of it!

    Man o man, do I get hassled from friends. Everytime we go to a mall or anywhere that has perfume, I need to go in to check if anything different is there since 3 days before. As my cologne interest has become an obsession, my friends have become more and more annoyed and continue to question my sexuality. I just shrug it off though, I smell good, and know I'm straight so that's there problem.

    I wish I could talk myself out of buying a little more often. It is my one and only true addiction. A cocaine habit would be much cheaper!

    Isn't it interesting how people can think that an interest in olfactory artistry and sexuality have anything to do with each other? My friends just think I'm a little weird when it comes to my perfume buying habits. No one ever asks things like "what's chypre?" to me anymore, because they know I'll be talking for much too long!

    Hopefully, it gets to that point, where they respect my interests, as opposed to constantly voiceing there negative opinions about it. They're trying though, I can understand how it can get annoying constantly being dragged into Sephora's and Macy's.

    I feel your pain! I just tell them I'll meet up with them later, I'm on a mission; or better yet, I tend to go to the mall alone!

    LOL. Just buy what you want to buy.
    At the end of the day, it's your money, your frag, and your decision.

    OMG I LOVE GUINNESS!!!

    "What the H*ll do you do with all those colognes"
    "Why are you looking at that perfume, isn't Mitsouko for girls?"
    "Your Weird"
    "O God, Another Fragrance store, You Know Mark's gonna spend at least 2 hrs there"

    Yet, I flirt with more women, I know more women, I actually appreciate fragrance and the world around it, and I don't purchase the boring scents that I know people around me will have on.

    Hmm, its 12:04 a.m. and all im thinking about is going to the fragrance store and picking up Jicky. Is this normal? For us BNers, i think it is.

    While my wife ask for my permission to buy more new fancy Guerlain shades, she would never try to talk me out of buying perfumes!
    At least, I`m in charge of HER PERFUME WARDROBE too!
