I smell a rat
Yesterday Easy wrote about smells.
I’m very sensitive to smells, like a dog, I often find myself trying to track down certain smells at home, work, or wherever the crazy kicks in.
You gotta see me when something goes bad in the fridge, I stick my head in and start smelling.
It often occurs that nobody else smells a thing, but I insist in looking or smelling till I find it.
A couple of times when I eat out, the food smells weird, last time it happened was a vegetarian restaurant, I ordered couscous and steamed veggies. I grabbed a spoon full of it, the minute it was close to my mouth I smelled something sour (you know how sour smells like, right?). No way I was going to put that crap in my mouth, it’s my policy and applies for all “If I don’t like how it smells I don’t put it in my mouth”
There’s also the smell of Axe deodorant, that crap makes me sick, specially the chocolate one that is so popular in here. I rather wear lemon and baking soda on my armpits that wearing that crap.
For real, guys in here take showers of Axe, do they believe what the commercial says?
I hope not.
But not all is gross, there are smells that I love, cinnamon, green apple, cardamom.
I like the smell of orange blossom that inundates Seville in Spring.
I like how water smells. Ha! Don’t you tell me water doesn’t smell, cuz it does.
I love the smell of Hawaiian Tropic tanning oil, because it has coconut and I love coconut.
But by far my favorite artificial smell is a body lotion made by Victoria’s Secret, the description of the scent is as follows:
“Passionate Kisses is a sweet, opulent blend of cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, coconut milk, rose, jasmine, violet, amber and musk.”
What’s not to like about it?Sadly it’s a limited edition product, last time they put it out was back in 2010, I ordered 10 of each, I swear I’m no kidding.
Whenever I smell that I feel like eating myself up, it’s too good to resist.
What’s your favorite smell?
