You grow so accustomed to your own body odour that you eventually don't realise that you have one. When you can start to smell a little bit of your odour then its gotten to the point where you need to seriously take a deep clean. Had to learn this the hard way.
There is no excuse to smell bad all the time unless:
Emphasis on "all the time." I understand someone finishing a workout or getting off work and needing a shower. However, I have worked with people and been partnered with people for group projects who just down-right smell TERRIBLE. All the time. Soap is not expensive. Water is not expensive. In fact, I would argue that water bills are cheaper than energy bills or gas bills, but that's easily debatable. What isn't very debatable is people smelling bad. Everyone who smells them knows that they smell bad, but I can not remember ever hearing someone tell them to their face that they smell bad or need to go shower. I think it would be better for everyone involved to let these people know ASAP that they do not smell good and should consider taking a shower or using soap. Anything. Of course they should be told this... keep reading on reddit ➡
My wife’s mother has been staying with us to help with kids during the coronavirus. Yesterday I was on the floor in the den playing with the kids and kept getting this waft of soured smell. My mother in-law was sitting about 3 feet behind me on the couch. I initially thought it was feet or something. I asked if anyone else smelled it and everyone said no. I kept smelling it and was finally like “ y’all don’t smell that?? It reaks”. My mother in law turned bright red and said she would go take a shower.
It was so awkward. Today we’ve just acted like nothing happened. My wife and I talked about it last night and agree it was super awkward.
I think, that no matter how ugly you are and how much you don't fit in my preferences, you can still be attractive or hot (at lest somewhat) by just smelling really fucking good.
The right smell (especially men's smell) can change someones whole presence. You meet someone and if they smell good you automatically think that they have great hygiene ect. Also, who doesn't like to be arround good smelling ppl, right?
So, no matter how low of a self-esteem you have, go buy a nice and long smelling perfume and maybe that helps. Btw, I don't really think ppl are ugly, no matter how you look, there's still something about you that's attractive and handsome, but if you personally think that you are ugly (trust me I know how that feels), maybe try to boost yourself by being extra picky when it comes to your own hygiene/smell and maybe you will recieve some compliments (compliments about your smell is the best type of compliments, bc you can affect it, but you can't change your appear... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m Indian, Gujarati to be precise. Like all Indians my regional food is a point of pride for me and although I’m 2nd gen American I still love my homelands foods.
My wife is American and our kids our obviously half white half Indian. I’ve never taken an active interest in cooking Asian foods before but all of a sudden I have time on my hands and I miss my parents so decided to reconnect with the culture and start to cook for myself.
Anyhow I always clean up etc and use the regular old dishes and pots and pans, but my wife absolutely hates the smell of Indian food and says that not only does it stink but that my food is staining the dishes because I use a lot of turmeric / haldi.
She says that our kids find that food too spicy (7 and 8) and that it’s upsetting their stomachs if I give them that food. I have heard 0 complaints from the kids although they do find it a bit spicy but as a kid I ate it and it’s fine, they eat their food with a glass of milk and lots of roti and it tur... keep reading on reddit ➡
It was only when I was outside did I remember this was my weekend with the kids.
UPDATE on 5/16 11 a.m: I woke up at 7 this morning and the first thing I did was go look for the package. The package is gone, so I assume they’re alive. I also stayed up until 1am and checked one of their windows, it had a light on when I went to sleep and now it’s off. I dunno. I don’t think anyones dead at this point, sorry for worrying y’all. Might just be bad cooking. Will wait to see if smell comes back this afternoon. Or, maybe they’re hiding a dead body? I mean, it’s crazy unlikely but, it’s possible, right?
So for the last couple of months I’ve been noticing a “funk” in my apartment that seemed to show up in the afternoon. I can smell it right now and the only way I can describe it is like... really pungent cooked Brussels sprouts.. It’s not everyday, but it’s pretty regular, maybe 5 days out of the week? I’ve spent the last month being hyper-vigilant about cleaning because I thought it was something in my apartment.
Now that I’ve disinfected every nook and have been very... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened a couple nights ago. Eldest child wondered what the smell was in the house at 2am and came in to wake us up. She often has an over sensitive nose and it was probably a skunk or something outside. After talking for about 10 minutes, I decided fine, I'll go look.
As I started going downstairs, it hit me. We actually had a gas leak. I could smell it going down stairs. My brain stopped. How could this happen. I went back up stairs, and told her to get to her bedroom. Wife was up at that point as well.
I decided to hold my breath and go back down. We just replaced the igniter on our oven, and I wondered if somehow that go bumped, didn't light up and is dumping gas into our house.
The scene from Jason Borne popped in my head. Please let the toaster be off...
Holding my breath as long as I could, I opened the back door then went to the kitchen. I heard the hiss at first and tried to figure out where it was coming from. Finally I found one of the burners didn't... keep reading on reddit ➡
I like the smell. Ever since I was a child my parents would take me to a gas station on the way home or something and I loved it. Some of my friends hate it and I have no idea why. It feels wrong but so relaxing at the same time. Almost like you're on the brink of anxiety but not really.
The title says everything, actually. When Im at the gas station with for example my mom, she pretty much always says that it stinks. I dont think so. I dont know what about the smell of gas i like, but it is very relaxing.
I’ve lived in this town named Tattletoe since the moment I was born. When everything smelled like nutmeg. It’s quite a beautiful place. Everyone that lives here is being gifted with anything they could ever wish for. Each family has a big house with enough rooms so that generations can live together if they wish to. They receive a car, although that one is quite unnecessary if you ask me. No one ever leaves anyway and the town is small enough that a bike would be more than enough.
If you want to take a stroll down the town center you can easily do so by foot. You can watch all the little shops and restaurants. Each and every place is an individual masterpiece run by important members of the community. There is a flower shop growing the most peculiar plants with the brightest colors. There is a store making boots that will make you want to start dancing and never stop. There is a jewelry store with diamonds you have never seen before.
However, the most important place, the one that ma... keep reading on reddit ➡
For me it has to be Creed Silver Mountain Water. I got a 2ml sample from creed boutique and that’s when I was so thankful for samples because my goodness, silver mountain water is disgusting. It smells like sweet rubbing alcohol and ink. It was the only fragrance that EVER had people tell me I smell bad/weird. It’s funny because Green Irish Tweed and Aventus are 10/10’s but SMW is a 0/10
Neither did until I was asked to clean the school bus.
Our sense of smell is tied closely to memory. Smells have the ability to powerfully evoke memories in a way that fading images in our minds cannot compare to. The next time you go on a trip that you would like to remember, purchase something that has a smell and use it during the trip. Years or even decades later, anytime that smell is presented you will be immediately transported back to the memories of that trip. It doesn’t necessarily have to be something expensive like perfume. I have found that simple things like deodorant, shampoos, and powder can be highly effective at transporting me back to positive memories of long-forgotten trips.
I now realize they cant smell anything through my computer hahah
This is me (15), my brothers (13 and 12) and my younger sister (11) writing. We’re back at our mums house now but this happened from Monday 11th May - Friday 15th May.
Our dad has a new girlfriend who’s from Japan. She’s a bit rude and we don’t really like her. She’s ok when our dad is around but when he isn’t she gets snappy and rude to us. She is pregnant with her first baby/ my dads 6th baby.
He insisted on having us this past week because he was off work and hasn’t seen us in a really long time. We didn’t want to go but our mum said we might enjoy it. Spoiler alert: we did not enjoy it.
My dads girlfriend insisted on cooking for us all. Normally we eat sausages and beans or jacket potatoes with cheese. But she makes things that are really smelly that we don’t like. She likes fish eggs and dried shrimp paste and she puts a lot of seaweed in her food.
Me and my siblings have never eaten that stuff in our lives and we don’t like the smell or the taste. We had to leave the hous... keep reading on reddit ➡
