Ask Sophie: Why must some people pour on the perfume?

Email News Alerts

Dear Sophie,

What's with women and men who pour on the perfume, cologne, aftershave, deodorant, and body wash smells? It's become impossible to be with a group of people and not gag from the odors. Good old-fashioned sweaty body odor would be better. I'm ready to resort to a face mask, but there must be an easier way. HELP!!
