I have a question, do you have a scent? I was talking with my older cousin last week about my oldest son and how it is with a 'tween' boy. Having to remind them to use soap & shampoo in the shower, of course that is after you remind them to shower everyday! And deodorant, just general hygiene stuff, I don't know are girls like this too? I don't think so but I guess I'll find out in a few years. Anyways, she said "You need to get him interested in a scent." I was like HUH? She said you know find a fragrance he likes, buy him some and he might be more apt to shower so he can use it.
So that got us to talking about men and their 'scents'. I can remember my Daddy always smelling so good after he'd shaved. I used to love to sit in the bathroom and watch him shave (he still does it the old fashioned way with shaving soap & a razor mind you) and then splash on whatever aftershave (alot of Old Spice is what I remember, not so much anymore)and smell sooooooo good!! I commented that Jason (My hubby) doesn't wear any of that stuff either. I wish he did then our oldest might be interested in it too.
But you know what? I don't have a scent. I used to love Estee Lauder Pleasures and I have a bottle that was given to me as a gift. But I am prone to migraines and for some odd reason I can use that perfume today and have no problems, put it on tomorrow and it can set off a migraine. Walking through those cosmetic counter areas in Dept. stores can be torture to me later. Magazines with all those perfume samples? Hate them, I immediately pull them all out if I happen to pick up a magazine to read. So no wonder my hubby doesn't wear anything, I can't walk through the section smelling a bunch of samples and pick one for him that I like & buy it as a gift. Maybe he doesn't want to set off a migraine for me, then again maybe he just doesn't care for one. Which in turn probably both of our habits rub off on our oldest son and he might not want a 'scent.'
So if you have/had teen boys, did they have a scent that they preferred?
What about you, do you have a scent? Does your spouse or significant other?
