    I Hate When People Wear Too Much Purfume

    It makes me cough and gag and it just smells bad to boot. I don't know where they think smeling like a cosmtics counter is going to get them, other than asked to leave some public places. Do they really smell so bad that this is better? If so then they need to see a doctor. I...

    They Usually Smell Gross

    i'm not a big fan of citrus smelling freshners. i once put one in my car and about a week later it smelled like rotten fruit. i also find those outdoor smelling ones like fresh rain or mountain breeze rather pungent as well. to me they kind of resemble the scent of burnt...

    It Sickens Me...

    To smell something that's scented or even "flavored' a certain way (as it will still have a certain smell). Say for instance, you have a pancake/waffle scented candle. (These are actual things- I kid you not.) It will smell like at least two of 3 things: 1) Smells like what it...

    I Love Natural Smells

    I love the smell of rain,of freshly mowed grass,of the herbs I grow(culinary),fresh flowers. Perfume or any other artificial smell is so strong to me it's almost like a slap in the face. If it's in a store I just walked into I turn around and walk out.If it's in someone's home I...

    That Perfume Makes You Stink

    I have this thing against cologne and perfumes. I think most of them stink and it’s a real turn off. Seriously, who wants to kiss someone’s neck and get a mouth full of rubbing alcohol? It kind of ruins the moment. Not only that, but a person’s natural scent is much more...

    What Defines Stinky? Artificial Perfumes Make Me Sick!!

    I have an acute sense of smell, but the worst smells are artificial perfumes. They assault my senses and if I am around them for more than a few minutes, I get a migraine.  People don't get it. I ask them to please not wear these fragrances when they visit me, and they...

    Totally Fab?

    People always think it's weird that I don't wear cologne.  As a gay man, I guess I'm expected to be like "Oh yes, I got this Chanel Lacoste Hilfiger cologne at the Dilliards.  Totally fab!"  I think I'm too much of a hippie, I dunno.  Usually I just...

    Been Allergic For Years

    One day in 8th grade I was in my Language Arts class when I went to the cabinet at the front of the classroom to get something from it. (I don't remember what it was now.) My teacher was also the ASB adviser, so she had things in that cabinet that were needed for lunchtime school...

    I enjoy both natural and artificial smells, but one must consider that all artificial scents are derived from something that exists naturally.

    Dishwasher Scent

    Don't Wear It, Drink It

    I think to myself everyday... "Find out how toxic that crap you put on your skin really is... go on, take a big swig, you nasty selfish ape. May your children be born with one eye in the middle." I really REALLY hate perfumes, colognes, scented lotions.... oh btw, there's...

    Headache

    cologne and perfume are way too strong for me to handle. i get headaches and can't breathe very well. and i always wonder why people insist on wearing it unless they otherwise smell bad. i say take a shower, wear deodorant.

    I use the pill. I don't like condoms because they make sex feel artificial, like I want skin to skin, not skin to rubber. It feels nice but nothing beats actual human touch. xx

    Life is too short to worry about whether you like me or not. Who cares if you don't, there's probably a good chance that I don't like you either.
