    Wink Who smells so good?

    Stranger/Co-Worker/Friend: Who smells so good?

    My reaction:
    Never leave the house without six sprays.

    My Top 5:
    1. Xeryus Rouge (vintage)
    2. Perry Ellis "m"
    2. Womanity
    3. Body Kouros (3rd reformulation)
    5. Alien Absolue

    That's funny! But it is a good feeling, it always is a nice surprise when someone says that.

    Hahahahah. Good for you!

    I just experienced the opposite. Was standing in line for TSA check-in and the person standing in front of me smelled of piss & poop. No exaggeration. Oy! I am hoping I'll have a better experience when on board. Fingers crossed!

    I have absolutely no tolerance for this sort of thing. Everyone should respect himself/herself and others enough not to enter the public sphere in that condition. There is no excuse for it. The person should not be allowed to board the aeroplane.

    He seemed so rush when taking the security check-in line and mentioned something to the effect that he might be late for his flight. So when I detected of a hmmm smell I wondered whether he was in such a hurry and completely forget to ......

    Congratulations! The truth is, so many great fragrances regularly applied here on BN, it was only a matter of time since it got more widely noticed.

    Hard not to be compliment-driven but it comes as a very welcome bonus to the day.

    Sadly simple hygiene is still not followed by surprisingly many - have a co-worker - I've seen that more than once when he's not washed his hands at the washroom & I just was in disbelief...

    My husband once made this remark when we were in line at a coffee shop- I said, "It's me, genius!" He didn't realize it was my Annick Goutal- Eau d'Hadrien (EDP). He tried to attribute it to another woman it line, but I knew it was me. At least, I couldn't smell any other perfume in the vicinity.
