What Smells Like Old Lady?


That is only the question that my husband has asked me 15 times today.

"Do you have on a different cologne?" he demanded.

"No," I answer, "No cologne, no lotions, but I did bathe this morning."

He picked up the Victoria Secret catalogue that I was thumbing through, and gave it a good whiff, as to find to find the source of the offending aroma.

"Look, if you want to borrow my catalogue, just say so." (Of course I smirked when I said that.)

"No, not this," he said putting it down, only after indulging in a few ooohs and aaaahs over the sequin laden lingerie.

"Smell my hair."


"Smell my hair," I instructed, "I used a different shampoo and conditioner this morning." (...which is almost always the case, as I have a few dozen in the shower.)

He obliged. "OHHH YEAH! That's it? What is that, it's awful!"

He has since given my desk - yes, we work together - a wide berth every time he's cut across the office.

So, what did I use? Dove shampoo. Dove conditioner. Didn't even mix and match today!

I think I look and smell radiant, personally. But there you have it, one man's cosmetic critique of the day.


I love Dove Bars, but I didn't realize the made shampoo and conditioner. I need to get out more.

I was going to say Velociman smells like old lady, but I gave them up for Ramadan.

Phew..thanks for letting me know. I had a coupon for both of them and was going to try it out. I'm still unclear as to what an old lady should smell like though.

You look and smell so nice, you don't need anything, ever, take care, Cat.
