    The smell of a ravioli soups in a Chinese restaurant this afternoon.

    A friend of mine works in retail and she's always talking about how tons of people - regardless of age - simply don't know how much perfume or cologne to wear, or even their proper clothing sizes (she's actually argued with women abut their own bra sizes). Riding thru an area with a nightclub or downtown during rush hour, I always pass several people that have over done it.

    And I'm flabbergasted to learn they still sell/make Brut. I haven't worn that since high school (late 70s). It's like finding out they still make Hai Karate. :)

    That is so true about clothing sizes....I think a lot of women are in denial about their size and bras in particular......but most women don't like to be fitted for one so they just keep buying the wrong size. Kinda silly really!

    I have a keen sense of smell myself and just loath being near women who have drenched themselves in cheap perfume. It just goes straight to my head!

    Late 70's is when Brut became huge here.....everyone was wearing it.....but you know I kinda liked it back then and my big brother wore it too! Just loved those little bottles!

    I had to look up Hai Karate....I don't think we had that brand here in OZ. ;)

    Hai Karate's gimmick was that you had to fight the women off. The ads were hilariously cheesy, with a geeky guy in a leisure suit pursued by tons of models. If you've seen The Incredibles, Frozone is putting some on just before his wife's dinner party, when he sees a helicopter crashing outside.

    Thanks! I smell cinnamon every morning for breakfast too, I never tire of it! That's why we love OPIUM too!
    Honeysuckle first thing this morning coming through my window!

    It's noon here, but what I smelled so far can't be topped, imo: new-mown grass; and laundry that was drying outdoors - it has a unique, wonderful smell, different to the one dried inside. :)

    Funny, I was reading a thriller where the terrorists killed some guys with poison gas and one guy knew what it was because it smelled like freshly cut grass.
