    So the soap I use for showers is kind of like.

    .cherry candy scented? And the cream I put on my skin is coconut. So now when I'm around people they're just like "something smells like chocolate or cupcakes" and I'm like "yeah that's me." So I'm not sure if being told you smell like chocolate or cupcakes or cookies is a...
