Sniff sniff....I stink!
In todays world of the ultra sensitve, we are concerned with our personal hygene. Let's face it, you don't want people to look at you and wrinkle their noses, do you? Admit it. We have body odor. You want to look, feel and smell clean. Sexy.
Let's start the day shall we? You drag your feet out of bed. Your mouth feels like a sewer, and you don't smell so well either. You head off to the bathroom and brush your teeth and shower.
You may have all kinds of products that you use. A body soap, face soap, shaving soap, shampoo and conditioner. So many fruity scents to choose from. You step out of the shower and wrap that towel around you. You may even sniff it to make sure it does not smell, well... moldy yet. It wouldn't do to have just showered and dry your self off with an old musty towel. Sniff sniff. Nope. April fresh.
If you have not already brushed your teeth, now would be a good time to do so. As you run your tongue across your teeth, you think, "Ahhh, minty fresh." Perhaps you use a styling agent on your hair. A leave in conditioner, mousse or hairspray. Now comes the key.
We would'nt want to go through all of that just to stink in an hour or so. Dont forget the deoderant. There are so many kinds of deoderant. Roll on. Stick. Wipe on. Mens. Ladies. Secret, strong enough for a man, but made for a woman, in a nice powedery scent. If you are a guy, don't forget the aftershave. Ladies, perhaps you would like to lotion after your shave.

Time to Paint the Town Red
Perfume. The term Perfume stems from Latin; Per Fume, or Through Smoke. This originated from the early burning of incense. The distillation of fragrant oil, probably came from India. In later times essential oils were worn on the body to mask body odors. You can see why people in old times would use perfume before making love. The amount of “scented concentrates” to alcohol are what determines the type. These are labeled from the highest concentration to the lowest. Perfume. Eau de Toilet. Cologne.
I Smell, therefore I am
As a civilized society, we are conscious of our body odor. As a modern consumer society, we are constantly bombarded with images and products that make us more self conscience. They use these images to make us feel better about our selves for using these products. They have a product to sell, and try to create a need for them based on our weaknesses.
Think about all of the products that you use that have “scents” in them. Many of your products are scented with perfume concentrates. Lotions, creams, powders, body splashes, aftershaves, soaps, and other cosmetic products may contain variable amounts of fragrance. Mix this chemical cocktail with the clothes you wear, dish detergent, floor cleaners, counter cleaners, air fresheners, anti bacterial wipes, scented trash-bags, furniture polish along with a plethora of deodorizers, and you have a virtual toxic hazard.
Most of the time, these “scents” do not blend well. Our olfactory scenes are inundated with a barrage of different scents. Our noses start to become less sensitive to smell, so companies are putting ever increasing higher concentrates in the everyday products we use.
Companies are trying to find cheaper ways of putting fragrance in their products. Many of these are becoming more and more abrasive to sensitive people. This also is the source of more pollution.
Many companies use cruel and unnecessary animal testing to test the abrasiveness of their fragrances. Think about considering “fragrance free” products the next time you go shopping.
