I would have to leave. It wouldn't be because the scent was
so bad but because they trigger a migraine in me.

It's the truth, though! You can smell that stuff 100 feet away. Like Desenex

Yes, you're right, it was "Poison" and it did smell like Raid. If you would
walk into a department store, there would be females there awaiting you to
spray it onto you. Yikes!

Yes, that's the whole thing for me: it's not the scent, but the illness
that the scent creates. So for me when I sniff this 'whatever' scent, I
run; and if I cannot run, I get angry because I know what is in store for
me.

Interestingly, I've always like unisex scents.

In college the femmes fatales wore Shalimar, the rest of us wore things
like Canoe, which was introduced for both sexes. My current favorite
is Calvin Klein "Be". It's not overpowering and wears off quickly.

<lol> For many moons I wore my own home mix of Patchouli and Bayberry.
Had a couple of co-workers that could not handle it.

Now I wear no scents at all except for whatever the shampoo and soap
provides...

Tee hee hee. I think there is a little of all of them in each of us.
Deciding which to be when is the balancing act we all face. It is a
question (using female equivalents ... or not <g>) that I have to ask
myself a lot when making decisions regarding the many irritations of life.
Erring on the side of the "high road" is much harder to do sometimes, but
it is usually worth trying first. Second is a "whole 'nother" ballgame.<g>

http://www.harbour.sfu.ca/~hayward/van/glossary/shalimar.html
Shalimar is a classic perfume from Guerlain, that was popular, although very
exotic, in the 50's. According to one reference, it "was inspired by the
timeless love story of an Indian Emperor who designed the Shalimar gardens
for the wife he adored. [...] The hint of musk from exotic spices such as
amber and vanilla were considered too overtly sensual for refined women at
first."

http://store.nordstrom.com/category/cat_medium.asp?category=2377897~2377899~2383884&origin=leftnav
Maybe this is the Shalimar version for men? It's named Guerlain, but I
don't know.

Shalimar is the only perfume I really liked. (Joy was the perfume of choice
of highschool girls in the late 40's where I was raised.)

Femme fatale from the early 50's.

I have a bottle of Channel Egoist that Kath bought for me (I'd liked the
Egoist Platinum in the past, light, zesty/zingy scent), she heard but
couldn't find it so got me this one - I like it but don't wear it often.
What I do wear fairly often Kath also bought me, recently - it came from
Body Shop - a Barefoot Doctor scent and it is absolutely gorgeous,
delicious! If I'm just feeling fed up, a bit blue, I'll put a couple of
squirts on the top of my chest and the scent soon cheers me right up. It's
not overpowering either, and even if you put a lot on initially, it mellows
within a few minutes and stays that way. First time I used it Taryn came
into the room and her eyes started rolling back in her head I swear, and she
said 'Wow, what's that smell? It's gorgeous, I want some!' - really is nice.
I just did a search but cannot find the one I have - it's in a long, slender
glass tube-bottle, silver/grey metal cap and pump spray, comes in a long
slim little box with the BD logo on it.



Hmmmm....

I adore this man. We borrow stuff from him. When he dies, and his house

That's what worried me, I think maybe my perfume would get around,
too. Opium. I also wore a mens cologne on occasion, that wasn't
as strong. Named something that made me think of tweed.
