Question of the Day

Sparked by a commentary heard last night on NPR:

Do you wear cologne/perfume?

Me: No.  Allen once got me some cologne for Christmas and I tried it.  But it mixed with my body chemistry to give off the scent of cucumber salad.  That’s not a bad smell in and of itself, but I got some funny looks at potluck dinners.

9 barks and woofs on “Question of the Day

  1. Nope. Nurses don’t because it is obnoxious for the patients. Even the scent of deoderant or bath soap can be annoying.

  2. For work: Reaction by Kenneth Cole. Low-key and fresh. Comes from being in The Great Steam Bath – er, Florida – for all those years, and not wanting clients to be exposed to bantha sweat.

    For play: Fahrenheit by Dior.

    For both: minimal application. I wear cologne, I don’t wander around in a cloud of it.

    And depending on the cucumber salad, I bet you’d smell absolutely edible. ,-)

  3. Somtimes, but not too often. As for the cucumber salad, I had a bad gall bladder about 15 yrs. ago and I was severely allergic to cucumbers; they doubled me up in agony. I cannot to this day do cucumbers.

  4. Rarely. I react badly to something in the carrier liquids of most perfumes. But when I do wear something nice smelling? I buy it from a cool place called Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs…scented oils only, no obnoxious carriers. And I can use these oils to scent the rooms as well….dripped into a tea light and such.

    I actually now get inspired to mix some of my own scents using essential oils and something neutral like jojoba oil as carrier.
