The Nose Knows

You Know Who You Are!!

A bit of an olfactory assault today in the elevator. Not quite as bad as a nasty fart, but still pretty pungent.

Ladies, a bit of advice:

As you approach "a certain age", do not despair. Though the cumulative effects of time/gravity/life might have left their marks, it's not all bad. There's folks out there that appreciate the experience and wisdom that you've earned. And that white skunk stripe bisecting your glorious black fall of hair? Drop dead sexy!!


There comes a time when you really need to reconsider your choice of perfume.

On a 20 year old hardbody out clubbing on a Saturday night, that deep musky-spicy scent is just the thing. On a woman closer to 50 than 40 in a business suit at 3:00 in the afternoon? It's a bit much. Remember, it's a fine line between sultry cougar and mangy coyote!

Perhaps something with a citrus/floral note? A touch of sandalwood and bergamot? You don't need to go with the old lady gardenias, but you really ought to tone it down a bit!
