Smoky

I have a bottle of expensive French perfume. You know how pipe tobacco can smell delicious? That is the basic idea of this perfume.


Swistle: Want to smell my new expensive French perfume? *offers neck*

Paul: *takes deep whiff of neck* Mmmm, nice. Flowery.

Swistle: It's SMOKY.

Paul: ...

Swistle: Want to try again? *re-offers neck*

Paul: *takes deep whiff of neck* Mmmm! SMOKE!

Swistle: ...

Paul: Have you been...*waggles eyebrows suggestively*...BARBECUING?

I love you guys. This type of exchange is my favorite because it's so real. The re-offering of the neck and the suggestive barbecue! Priceless!

I love BBQ.

So, what type of perfume is it? I feel like I want to start smelling pretty. I'd like a "signature scent"...something that I could still be wearing in 50 years.

I think any perfume that smells like food is destined to be a big hit with men. Good choice!

Swistle said...

Shannon- It's L'Artisan's Tea for Two. It is so nice. I like the "signature scent" idea, too.

So THAT'S how you ended up with five children! You sure know how to lure him in!

Mmmm ... Tea for Two is my favorite L'Artisan, as I think I've told you -- it's followed by a close second in La Chasse Aux Papillons.

Tea for Two smells like a chai latte with honey on me. Smoky? BARBECUING? How dare he! I think it has some lapsang souchong tea in it, which is very smoky, and on some people, it smells like burning tires (Have you ever smelled Bulgari Black? Its primary note is lapsang souchong, and on me, it smells PRECISELY like burnt rubber. It's disgusting. But it has the coolest bottle ever). Thankfully, Tea for Two's lapsang souchang is much more gentle and honeyed on me.

I have problems.

I think we DID marry twins...

Mmm! BBQ! Is it summer yet?

Perfume with tea in it? Fascinating.

*steeples fingers like Spock*

Ha ha!

Though by this time of year, I'm so hungry for BBQ, that's a serious compliment.

I like how you gently redirected his olfactory senses, and how he gamely gave it another try. Sounds like a marriage that has most of the kinks worked out!

BBQ smoke is the new scent of rich girl necks everywhere.

You guys are so cute. I am so so picky about scents and perfumes. I feel kind of cheesy about it, but I guess my "signature scent" is Vanilla Sugar from B&B Works...since I have been wearing it for oh...a decade or so.

Man. That makes me feel juvenile.

You know, whenever Gabe barbeques I like to smell him.

He says the smell gets me hot. I think he might be right.

Jen said...

Thanks for the Saturday morning funny! I needed one of those.

How easy is your husband to attract, when he simply requires dabbing La Sauce d'BBQ on your wrists.

Maggie said...

Mmmmm, barbeque!

amber said...

BBQ! Your husband is hilarious - and you're not so bad yourself.

Emblita said...

Brilliant- thats marriage right there :)

Raven said...

Haha! Expensive French BBQ!

I love that, SO. MUCH.

I can just imagine what the native Texans around here would think of that idea.
