People wear perfume and cologne to feel like they smell clean and fresh or sexy or elegant. It is meant to attract others, to make them want to be near.
So why does it contain crap and vomit?
Yes, those expensive scented serums for which consumers pay dearly often include repulsive ingredients that most of us would never willingly waft over our bodies or daub onto our pressure points. In these later days, these ingredients often come in synthetic form — cross your fingers that the brand you favor doesn’t use any of the genuine articles.
Synthetic or not, apparently these aromas get the job done, because people keep coming back for more. But would they if they knew the truth? Here is a splash of it.
