On the brink of stink - Don't be a Nasal Terrorist!!!

I have encountered this so many times, I just have to get it out. It's a subject most people won't address, even though many are affected by it.  Obviously, many people are not even aware of it.  Millions of people spray on some kinda smell good every day. This is fine - unless you smell like you took a bath in it. Moderation is the key, people!

I mean, I know all of you at one time have been in an elevator, or perhaps sat next to someone, passed someone in a hallway or maybe even work with someone who REEKS of their perfume/cologne, right? I love the smell of a good scent, but when faced with a smothering, overwhelming scent devouring me from 15 feet away, my allergies go FULL BLAST.  Really, Less is BETTER!!!

Within a few minutes of the application, if you didn't overdo it, you shouldn't be able to smell it anymore. If you can still smell your scent a few minutes after putting it on, it's too much. And you will choke the ones you love and hate. Equally. So please, apply sparingly. It says this on the labels for a reason.

Now, that being said, let me share something else with you. While today that perfume you didn't bathe in smells nice, 24 hours later it's a whole different story. If you don't shower that stuff off before you go to bed.  A big glass of day old, southern sweet tea is the nectar of the Gods!  Day old scent??   Hell to the NO.

Perfume or cologne that you have marinated in all night long has a funky smell the next day. It does NOT smell ANYTHING like it did when you first put it on. The combination of  body sweat and the ingredients in that stuff does NOT mix well. I don't care who you are or how clean you think you are or whatever, you will smell funky if you don't wash it off. You become the dreaded NASAL TERRORIST!! Assaulting the unsuspecting olfactory receptors of countless victims in a single day!

If you knew this already, then you've just read a blog that made you feel good about yourself.  Score!!!
But if you didn't know this, please go easy on the fragrance!! Don't Be a NASAL TERRORIST!!! Most people won't say anything about it, but they are suffering around you. So PLEASE WASH IT OFF AT NIGHT and start with a SMALL AMOUNT of fresh perfume/cologne each day. You will be much appreciated by everyone you run into and nostrils everywhere will thank you!  :)


  1. Love this! And for those who don't wear perfume/cologne, please remember to at least wear deodorant! (and some need to reapply thruout the day!)
