Thank you for visiting.

On November 15, 2018, I bought a Circulon roaster with rack (Item #1153595) for my friend. But it was too big for her oven.

I returned Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant (Costco item #1678543). The package said “No artificial fragrance”. So, I thought they were unscented. But, they do have “Natural” smell. I looked at the package at home and saw there was a scratch and smell patch. So, I scratched and smelled. It smelled very good. It smelled like a clean and fresh armpit. That’s a Nono for me.

I have a strong opinion about smell of personal care products. I wrote a blog about it 10 years ago.

I went online and looked up Schmidt’s Natural Deodorants. It was highly rated. People loved the product.. and they loved the smell. That’s my problem, the smell. I don’t want my deodorant to smell. I don’t care how good it smells. At the end of the day, people know they are smelling my armpits. I prefer no smell over great smell of armpits.

I prefer no smell over great smell of a dead mouse. I prefer no smell over great smell of horse manure, cat litter. etc… no smell is the best in many cases.

How come people don’t seem to agree with me on this? Am I that crazy and different? Over the years, multiple female friends complimented about natural smell of my body. Some wrote me about it. Some took my worn undershirt after a long day together. We all smell different. Our unique scent will attract opposite sex (or same sex) in intimate settings. I don’t want to smell like a product that millions of other people put on their arm pits. To me, that’s disgusting to think about.

Anyway, these smelly deodorants had to go. I am back searching for unscented ones.
