Oh, Opal, I sympathize. I have a sensitive sniffer and I HATE when I can’t get rid of a nasty smell. But first - did you get that lotion at Bath & Body Works? Because if so, I know exactly how yucky it smells, and the truth is, it doesn’t smell all that bad in the bottle. It’s not until you purchase it and use it on your hands that the yuck comes out. (porcupine - if Opal was already wearing some fragrance, a tester in the store would have been futile anyway.) Advice for you, should you happen to get some on you again: wash your hands with coffee grounds. It REALLY helps get the yucky smell off (also works if you have garlic or onion smells stuck to you.)
And Zette, one of my dearest pals wears Fendi perfume. If you’re not familiar with this fragrance, I can sum it up in two words: bug spray. And yes, I had to break the news to her. What’s the name of the tampon perfume, so I can be sure to avoid it?
