Sould We Now Ban .....

Now that we have blissfully got rid of smoking in public enclosed places, especially in restaurants, should we now turn our full attentions to banning some sinus blocking designer perfumes?

Sitting in a plush à la carte restaurant the other night, in which this type of menu is in many ways a lazy con trick, a woman strolls in and turns the air into a pungent cocktail à la carte odours.
It was nosed in the Lou Lou styled parfum which brought me back to my many years working in the trade.

Her lack of taste and sensitivity in designer parfum was all to evident to every clear smelling diner except to herself.Then again is could well have been a present from a male admirer.

I felt very lucky as she settled down at a far away table to some delicate rosé wine!

I'm sure she felt very lucky settling down far away from you too.

Indeed, what Earthsea said!

Good job restaurants dont ban sanctimonious self rightious people!.

You worked in the perfume trade now, for many years, how interesting, you have been a busy chap if you are the person I think you are who changed their name on this site.

If you can manage to spell perfume correctly once, why not on the subsequent occasions?

Same goes for the word "Should" in the thread title.

Such hypocritical pious pontification certainly gets up my nose...:-)

Commenting on other people's lack of taste and sensitivity is a risky business at the best of times - it exposes you to accusations of snobbery.

Be thankful it wasn't the Jade Goody perfume - which goes by the name of Shh! I know the manufacturers of this and they say there are two letters missing from the end in its name.

And even worse,Jane Goody herself!

Not your lucky day is it 4gig,
Some people on this forum never miss a chance to criticize and point out our mistakes to us. I think it makes their day for them.

I wouldn't worry 4gig thrives on contoversy!
