I used to do what some people call “layering”. Meaning I would find a scent I liked, go to a high-end franchise bath shop and buy everything from the body wash to foot balm to hand lotion just to make sure that I could smell like lavender all day. Of course, I ran out often because my skin always felt dry.
One day, I came to work early and stayed hidden in my corner cubicle. Some others followed and someone asked if I’d made it in yet. A couple of people joked that if you couldn’t smell me then no. At first, it was funny but about five minutes later, the joke went somewhere else. I guess people are a little too polite to tell you that you stink too good.
