Oh yes, mes petits choux fleurs we all know that no matter how much we adore the scented stuff there are, like people, certain perfumes that get right ups one’s figurative and in this case literal nose.
But what to do when such an offending aroma comes into one’s orbit not once but on an all too frequent basis…?
For we have suffered, have we not, at the hands of the perfume haters and seen the art form we love, if not destroyed, then sadly compromised and subject to the whims of IFRA and its armies?
And yet, and yet… there are freely available fragrances that have such a foul effect, I will admit they bring tears to my eyes.
So here is this weeks question…
What do you do if someone you must spend time with regularly wears a perfume that repulses you?
Not a loved one or a life partner, surely one should be able to tell them, but a colleague, or close-ish friend, a member of a club you belong to someone in your social circle.
Would you ever dream of telling another human being that, fragrance-wise, they stink?
I know, I know, it’s a toughie this week so I’m especially looking forward to all your sage advice!
