Patchouli, BO, mull, strong rollies, and other people's BO, that unwashed hair smell, unwashed clothes smell (BO and dirt) and feet stink.

That's what you hippies smell like to us clean people.

YUCK!

Wash your ******* self and put on some deoderant!

not all hippies smell. <br />
I shower daily with ivory, use degree deodorant sport and never, ever use anything else that has a sent. <br />
But I love the smell of patchouli mixed with vanilla.. on a woman

Yeah well, as previously mentioned in the comments intrepid, this is based on my experience. my experience of hippies.<br />
<br />
And frankly, its tended to go either one of two ways: smelly hippies, or unfortunately hypocrite hippies.<br />
<br />
Sounds like I would have benefited greatly from knowing the many generations of your family intrepid. And I hope that in future, my hippy experiences are based on balance, and mutual understanding.<br />

Ok, I wrote that last night after coming back from a gig. quite a good band actually, gypsy rock. I stood near the front to see the band with my friend, and in the throng of people, I ended up coming home smelling like someone else, or actually, quite a few someone else's.<br />
<br />
The reason I wrote this, is because in my home town, there is quite a thriving "Hippy" scene. Big groups of people who consider themselves either environmental, cool, or whatever, who just don't value much personal hygiene.<br />
<br />
Now I know some perfumes are gross! Trust me, I do. And I actually wear quite a subtly scented roll on antiperspirent deodorant. My goal in life is not to smell at all.<br />
<br />
I've known quite a few hippies in my life time. Quite a few. And they've all smelt like one or another combination of these things.<br />
<br />
I could add personal musk, and some bad perfumes to this list I suppose to make a more complete list. <br />
<br />
My experience of hippies may seem stereotypical to you, but that's because the people I've experienced haven't chosen to rise above the stereotype.<br />
<br />
Such is life.<br />

i also second what somewhatbent said.....<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
none of the hippies i know smell bad........

I find that rather offensive. patchouli maybe sometimes, and strong rollies yes, but my dreads and my clothes are always clean.......... grrr to stereotypes....
