Perfume kills

That is if you don't know how much to put on yourself, like me. All along, I've been using Body Shop's Amorito Eau de Toilette which smells like dark chocolate. Normally I'll spray twice on my neck and once on each hand. So this morning, I decided to try the Chanel's sample perfume, which my lady boss left behind with me more than a year ago, "Chance" or was it "Allure"? Anyway, I never knew that there's a difference between cologne/body spray and perfume. So I sprayed twice. On my neck. The first thing that came to my mind was, "OH MY GOD". Second? "I CAN"T BREATHE!!!" I staggered down the stairs..."Mom...(gasp for air), help me...I can't breathe."

My mom wondered what the drama was all about. When she found out what I did, instead of leaving for office immediately as planned, she made me eat my breakfast at home. She refused to drive me to office with the smell so strong. Oh, I sat under the fan too, hoping that the smell would be blown away. BUT IT KEPT ON FOLLOWING ME (duh). It's like how the smell won't go away after a skunk attacks a person with his butt spray. It's especially bad when I turn my head to the right. I learn today that with perfume, tiny amount is more than enough to last me the entire day.

The moment I reached office, I ran out with the excuse that I need to bank in cheques. At the moment? I think my eyes are starting to tear...

Jyrenze: I don't think just washing like that would work. I probably need to bathe.

SC: All your fault...never leave instructions...

Ashes: Wait till I "accidentally" spill the entire bottle on you...

My goooddd.... like THAT also can. Only you la, Steph... Only you.

EDP expensive. I also use EDT... But I spray mine more times than you and your Bodyshop. And even then, I don't get complaints of too strong smell...

Except when I use my DKNY Apple la. :P

I guess that's because she's using the wrong technique.
