Used to be scents were drowned out by tobacco smoke.

The "odor of roses" is, in fact, a powerful allergen. Another source of the same allergen is frequently found in Vitamin C tablets made from rosehips.

Apple peels can cause problems to those susceptible.

"We really don't think it's a good idea to legislate personal hygiene,"

If we do, can we do something about the smell of seventh period on a warm day--at a school that doesn't have gym showers?

I think people are more willing to speak up now when a scent is choking them. I know I am. In the past I would just hold my nose and leave the area but not anymore.

Jr High School is one of the last places left where you can do stupid stuff and not suffer for it the rest of your life. Go back and look at your Jr. High yearbook. This is the reason we have Jr. High. there too big and smelly ( with or with out help from a spray can) to put in grade school and too stupid to put with all those smart high schoolers.

I've gotten to where I hesitate to wear any scent!

No matter WHAT we do, somebody's not going to like it, but I think we have to use some common sense, even when it comes to colognes and aftershave lotions. For some reason, the one who uses them isn't as aware of the scent as others are. A little bit goes a long way.

A few years back, e.g., the bedroom reeked of the cologne my husband had recently applied. While I am not allergic, the fumes were nevertheless sickening.

My personal decision is not to wear any fragrance to a doctor's office or to the beauty salon or around someone who is allergic, e.g.; but, PLEASE, we don't need another PC law on this subject!

I told him he is saving himself for marriage.

I wonder what his thought was on hearing this. Do 12-year-old boys even think about this? LOL

Anyway, you and your husband have your work cut out for you for the next 8+ yrs. We have to be equally concerned about our single sons and daughters if a pregnancy occurs. The boys and young men will also pay a heavy price. They need to be fully informed of all the pitfalls.

All the best to you.

On all the smoking ban threads we like to joke around about banning perfumes or unwashed armpits. Until now I always thought it was an amusing way to illustrate the absurdity of the nanny-state mentality.

But now people are actually proposing this. And not just the crazy street people ranting in public parks and under highway off-ramps. Our elected officials are proposing this garbage.

This has got to be a nightmare. We can't even draw silly comparisons now for fear that some idiot legislator is going to take the suggestion seriously and try to pass a law.

Remember? It was predicted. BUT, don't blame the prediction for the idiocy. See it as the expected next step in PC control.

Let's take bets on what inanities will be next.

No, politicians' lies will not be banned. Uninformed and/or disinterested voters won't be turned away at the polls. The "blue dress" president won't be banned from the WH.

OK, here's one. All public schools MUST be equipped with swimming pools to accommodate their swim team. All residents must pay for these pools.

Help me out here! What's next on the PC agenda?

What do you mean by sing with? I sing in choirs, and scents are a big nono. Chokes up the other singers.

Yeah I used to be in love with a girl that used Enjoli. I’d recognize that in an instant.

Right. This discussion of scents is interesting but...

They say that just because something can be done doesn’t mean it should be done. I would say that just because something should be done doesn’t mean the legislature should do it.
