A small one.
I’ve been wondering about that for some time now, but it became clear today. I cannot deny smelling other people’s perfume and thinking they might consider improving their perfume taste.
Honestly (it seems this is going to be a rant), I can understand companies forbidding perfumes because if my colleagues wore stuff like that, I wouldn’t mind the ban.
I don’t know if I was specially sensitive to it today or it’s the fact that everyone is back from vacation but the times today I inwardly cringed (at least I hope it was inwardly) at the marine and synthetic musk notes in the air is still making me wonder how much money do those perfumes actually bring to their companies.
They are actually the ones guilty for the companies being allowed to ban perfumes from their midsts. I mean those perfumes are radioactive – they take over the space of 5 square metres and once there, they are relentless in their need to occupy it forever. I shudder just thinking about it.
I don’t think other person’s perfume should clobber you over the nose and then keep you there without any help. Because that’s what they do, they take over your space if you closer than 2-3 metres from it.
Sillage is all good but if I can smell so much of it in the middle of a city, well, I’d say that is way too much of it.
Now I’ve said all this, I generally don’t judge people by the perfume they wear. Personal taste is just that, personal. But when your personal taste takes over my space and won’t let me be, well, I do have a problem with it. And I do believe it’s a modern perfume problem, sillage used to go with you in times before and lessened after an hour or so, this seems to hang there in the air for what feels like forever.
Is it just me? Is there anyone else who slightly judges people by the perfume they wear? And is it just me or are the synthetic long-lasting musks going on other people’s nerves as well?
