I swear that as women get older, their sense of smell must become immune to the scent of their own perfume, so they simply add more to compensate. This, I approximate, peaks at around the age of 50, in my estimation, and then diminishes again slowly.
[I reckon an extra squirt per decade, as an average compensation for loss of smell?]
You to can experience this pungent phenomenon, as it is particularly noticeable and potent in the following scenarios:
- A wedding, family birthday or christening around where the aunties congregate.
- In a pub on a 50-60 year old ladies night out*. Easily located simply by following the sound of raucous cackles as someone has cracked a joke about incontinence or impotence, which is rather risqué after all, especially when discussed in public.
When the smoking ban finally comes into force in UK pubs, I think they should have fragrance free seating areas! :)
[* not me of course, them]
