The big stink….I'd like opinions

Thursday, January 16, 2014

There is only one perfume that my husband looooves,  Thierry Mugler Angel.  It is very strong. I really don't like the smell but do put it on for date night. I don't wear it every day. It kind of gives me a headache. 

It's the only perfume that my husband recognizes and he comments to women when they are wearing it. "Is that Angel you are wearing? I love when my wife wears it" is usually the comment. My husband is a cute, nice, friendly guy. He is not creepy looking or acting. He said that he was in an elevator yesterday and he asked the only other occupant yesterday if she was wearing Angel. He thinks it is a compliment. I think it is kind of creepy.

We were debating this last night and we both decided to pose the question to my readers. Please don't be shy..

Would it creep you out if a nicely dressed man in an elevator said to you "are you wearing Angel?"if you were actually wearing said fragrance? Would you think that he was trying to pick you up? Would you be flattered ?

i actually don't find it creepy as long as it's followed by "i love when my wife wears it" :)

oh yeah let me comment on perfume! ha ha ha

it is evil.

i am allergic to it.

it stinks.

it is invasive.

in a restaurant it is obnoxious and repugnant.

now do you want me to tell you how i really feel?

I wonder why he loves it so much ?
But I agree with what Natalie said.
I have worn a Rose perfume for over 40 years. Love ! Even when I stay at home in work clothes no rings or earrings I always wear perfume.

cheers, parsnip

It would not bother me a bit. I would take it as a compliment that he liked it and would confirm that it smelled good on me. LOL- Not creepy-kinda cute!

As a side note- Angel give me a headache almost immediately if I am around someone that is wearing it. My daughter's hubby likes it, too. Must be a man thing.

I used to wear Yves St Laurent when I was young and men used to come up to me all the time and ask what I was wearing. I found it a few years ago and thought it smelled so strong that I couldn't believe I ever wore it in the first place. xo Diana

I think the intent behind the comment is what would be creepy. But his intent is simply conversational - he loves it, loves it when you wear it. therefore not creepy!

I'm not sure! If he mentioned his wife, it would probably be ok.

That is so funny! Angel is actually my favorite perfume, I first discovered it on a trip to Paris. So I guess I associate it with that:) And you are right, it is strong, so I only use a tiny spritz. Would it creep me out if a man commented on it? I guess it would depend on the tone of the conversation, it might come across as a pick up line, as you mentioned!!

It would depend on what I thought of him. If he was cute I'd be pleased and say I was wearing it even if I wasn't. If he wasn't cute I would pretend I hadn't heard.
