No, I am not joking. Although my friends, male and female alike, ardently attacked the mysterious “nose” with a plethora of insults, she does make a valid point. Never EVER overspray. EVER. I mean it. People are fallible though; even I make mistakes (but to make my case, we were in close quarters and it was extremely hot). Scenteurs who like to enjoy their fragrance to the fullest extent are not afraid being noticed sometimes. There is a difference, however, between being noticed and imposing your scent on an entire room.
