A Smelly “Turn Off” Events

Just this morning, I was in the elevator and couldn’t help but stare as two good looking men came walking in. As a matter of fact, there were three other ladies (with me) that couldn’t help but gaze as well. We were checking these two from head to foot, then rear side. Hahaha! Couple seconds after, my sense of smell suddenly kicked into third gear. It smelled like someone poured themselves with a whole bottle of awful cologne, mixed with sweat and body odor.

It was horrible! I even had to hold my breath for a while. My appreciation for these two guys went down the drain, as I was turned off by their smell. Someone needs to hit the darn shower. I am not making this up, it can make anyone throw up. It’s that bad! Without any hesitation, I just had to get off on the third floor and decided to take the stairway. The three other ladies did the same thing. We were all rushing to get out of the elevator. We ended laughing out loud, soon as the door closed.

With that story told, I’m reminded of Malu Fernandez Unwitty Tale. When she said that her so called Jo Malone perfume evaporated into thin air and instead, savored the smell of AXE and Charlie cologne. But with the experience I had earlier, I’d be delighted to inhale a whole bottle of both AXE and Charlie rather than getting in the elevator with those two guys again. I’d probably passed out before I get to the fourth floor!

SARDONIC FACT: There’s very few scents my precious nose can tolerate. So up to this day, I still put on the good old Nenuco. Hahaha! Feeling baby…

    corek, sister! there’s nothing better than soap and water, dba? minsan nga we can get by pa without cologne as long as all clean. my golly! alam mo ba half hour later i took the elevator to go downstairs. may musky smell pa rin, tapang talaga ng amoy. mabagsik!

    nenuco din ang gamit ko nung gradeschool ako! hahaha! i love the smell of baby colognes, pero parang wala ako masyadong makitang baby colognes dito sa US. yung mga johnson’s and johnson’s na tulad sa atin sa pinas. bath and body works na body mist tuloy ang ginagamit ni abby. hee hee! 😀 happy long weekend!

    yung asawa ko, dati ang katrabaho ay mga tao mula sa yuropa, medyo alam mo naman notorious sila na may hindi kasipagan maligo. pabango lang lagi ang katapat! since sa isang kwarto lang sila nagtratrabaho, natuto ang asawa ko huminga sa bibig, hehehe.

    pagkatapos ng experience na yun, napunta na si hubby dito sa amerika, akala niya tapos na ang kanyang paghihirap. biglang na-stuck naman siya dun sa mga asyanong galing sa timog (sana hindi ito naintindihan ng mga kinauukulan, hahaha). balik hinga sa bibig ulit siya. 😀

    as in LOL ang beauty ko, meeya! kawawa naman ang hubby mo, napunta na sa europe then america pero sa bibig pa rin ang hinga. you need to get an oxygen tank with a mask and all, hahahah! to help your hubby breath.

    speaking of asyanong timog, meron din yan dito sa office. pero salamat kay Lord at nilagay sila malayo layo sa akin. i only have to endure the smell on quarterly meetings, hehehe =)
