    Sorry this happened to you. I love Aramis, but it can be pretty....potent...if oversprayed.

    That's how I feel with Sauvage or Bleu.

    I once saw a kid spraying continuously a bottle of Aventus at Neimans, 3 feet away from me. It was a horrible sight to see, must have been at least 20-30 sprays easily.

    Aggggggguueeehhh!!! I hate when I see fellow youngsters do this! The smell (stench, really) is so strong it feels like a toothpick being shoved up my nose.

    I remember it ruined my sniffing experience for that day, the Aventus cloud desensitized my nose.

    I saw a gentleman in Nordstrom at South Coast Plaza some time last year spray a profound amount of Green Irish Tweed from a tester onto himself and then onto a jacket he was carrying over his arm. He must have wanted his jacket to maintain the scent for a long time, because it had to have been 40 sprays or so. Creed testers are always empty...

    Got attacked by Sauvage and Bleu at work. The nose was left desensitized.

    Smelled Ariana Grande's Cloud at a bus stop yesterday!

    I also smelled a heavenly soft, woody and slightly spicy and subtle unisex-leaning scent coming from a woman on Monday morning...I kinda wanted to run after her and ask her what it is. It was beautiful.

    At the medical reception desk— something vanilla I didn’t recognize. It was nice to smell something through my mask. Also I think maybe DKNY Be Delicious or similar on the grocery store cashier last week.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    My boss's personal assistant walked by me today radiating a cloud of white laundry musks that I couldn't identify. When I asked her what it was, she said "Bath & Body Works something with 'sea' in its name." It was powerful. Whew. And I was chopping onions and peppers at the time.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    I got a face full of something "Bleu de Sauventus" like at the bus stop the other day. I say this because it smells like a clone that mixes the blue elements of Sauvage/Chanel with the huge vanilla ambrox base riff of Aventus/Explorer. That, or this guy layers.

    Ha! Being able to identify (call out?) fragrance layering is so next level. However, I’m not sure if I want to occupy that office yet. Funny. But so true.

    Sorry, I had to withdraw that comment. I just didn't think I could deal with the fallout.

    Either that, or they all literally smell the same from a distance.

    Which one is scarier?

    Caught a whiff of Sauvage again. This time I asked the wearer and had it confirmed. No idea which version though.

    Some members of the sales team stopped by the office today. I swear one of them was wearing BDC.
