Really, Coco?

"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." -Coco Chanel

Although in most instances I think Coco was a genius, I really do have to disagree with this. I used to wear perfume religiously--every day. Wouldn't leave the house without a spritz or two.

But when I started reading all about the dangers of perfume, my interest in the stuff started waning. I do still have a bottle kicking around here somewhere--but I use it only for a special occasions or if I haven't been able to squeeze in a shower and maybe feel a bit self conscious. (Hey, it happens to the best of us. Don't judge me.)

Plus, quite frankly most of the women I pass who wear perfume wear far, far too much of it. And it doesn't smell good! It's suffocating and just...gross. Really. I don't see how that's the sign of having a future--unless these stinky women just keep getting promoted and promoted so that no one has to smell them all day.

Isn't it terrible? Everything is bad for you in one way or another. It's getting difficult to navigate through potential hazards!
