Yum... You Smell Like Dirt

Normally being told you smell like dirt wouldn't be a complement. However, the name of the scent I wear is "Earth", I love the scent and so does my husband. The name of the oil, through my husband’s own interpretation machine, goes from “Earth” to "Dirt". I don't think his title would sell the product very well. And that got me thinking, what are some great perfume names that aren't being used? And what are some confusing ones that are?

I would totally go for scents called Enlighten, Rapture, or Coconut Cream Pie. But the scent called “Poison” has always confused me. From the name alone I definitely do not want to spray it on my body. I can just imagine my children overhearing a conversation “Oh, what are you wearing?” says a fellow mom at the park. ‘Poison, do you like it?’ I respond with X’s over my eyes. I have enough things in this world I need to explain to my children, the name of the scent I’m wearing is one I choose to avoid.

We can select from “Happy”, “Inspire”, “Angel”, and “Sunflower”. What in the world would make a company think we would be drawn to a scent called “Jungle L’Elephant”? Jungle Elephant?!? I’m all for artistic expression but I can’t get past the idea that I would end up smelling like an elephant. From my understanding, one reason we choose to wear fragrance is to AVOID smelling like an animal.

Well, if you start seeing large mammals roaming the streets don’t blame me. I’ll be the one walking through a flowery meadow dreaming of “Sun, Moon & Stars”, not a “Safari”.

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram
