I'm a janitor, and frankly, after dealing with stinky garbage chutes and filthy stuff all day, coming home to a warm shower and adding a little scent is NICE.

But I've been around the dousers -- and I don't do that. A couple spritzes in the air and then walk into it settles the fragrance all over very lightly. People that say anything about my perfume are very close... and I can smell it on my shirt if I stick my nose down the collar....

Apparently some of the hippies commenting on this thread think the reek of bad BO is the cat's ass. Of course, hippies weren't exactly known for exceptional personal hygeine.

What exactly is a "fake" smell, anyways? Are you trying to say that you'd prefer your house smelling of stale air or general mustiness as opposed to a vanilla scented candle?

People prefer musty? I was unaware of that!
I am not trying (trying?, really?) to say I prefer that at all. If that is what I meant, that is what I would say.

There is middle ground between mustiness and unnatural scents, you know.
I prefer fresh, cleaned, with the scent of homemade foods.

A clean house should not smell like stale air or general mustiness but if if it does, yes I prefer that smell over a migraine. Also those homes where candles are used often, those candles sometimes leave an old candle smell in the air. The candle scents get absorbed by the furniture, walls, curtains and don't go away that easily.

I don't think most homes smell unpleasant unless someone smokes inside. If your home smells musty there might be a mold or mildew issue.

I have been inside homes that have too many candles, sometimes a different scent in each room. To me the overpowering fake smells can be almost sickening.

The worst smell is when a smoker sprays on fragrance to cover up the odor of cigarette smoke. The combination of smoke and perfume is truly sickening.

I've had coworkers who smoke and don't want anyone to know that they are taking smoke breaks. So they spray on the perfume and think it cancels out the smoke odor.

I prefer the natural scent of a man also. I didn't know it was mustiness? I thought they were known as pheromones. They're an aphrodisiac.

I don't know if I have a natural scent. I can't smell it myself so I usually just spray a little perfume on my pulse points.
