Too much of a good thing... not a good thing. I was in line this morning to get some breakfast to go, and the woman in front of me seriously smelled like she just went to Sephora and sprayed every fragrance she saw all over her body. Seriously, the odor was so pungent that my eyes were watering. If you closed your eyes, you would never have known you were in a small shop with freshly baked bagels, doughnuts, breakfast sandwiches, and freshly brewed coffee. Normally, you notice these smells outside the shop!

If you use fragranced shampoos, conditioners, deodorant or antiperspirant, body washes, exfoliants, and skincare, be mindful of the fragrance combinations you may be creating.

So the next time you go to spray a bit of your favorite fragrance, remember - less is more. If you can smell yourself, you've got too much. And when in doubt, limit to 1-2 sprays per application.
