For anyone looking to make a good first impression, one of the most important things centers around how we smell. Think about it, whether you’re on a date or just socially mingling, how we smell, underarms, breath, etc.. are always on your mind to some degree. Why do you think gum/mint, perfume and deodorant industries are billion dollar markets? Today I’m going to share with you my checklist of sorts for making sure that I never have one of those embarrassing odor issues.
ITEM #1: Body Mint
This green little deodorant pill is a total God send. Why? Well there are a number of reasons. First, it’s natural. There are no harsh chemicals like aluminum, triclosan or parabens. Second, it works on multiple odors including body odor, bad breath and it even helps with stinky feet. It’s like knocking down two birds with one stone. Finally, it has no odor. This might sound strange, but one of my ishes with deodorants is the smell. I don’t care for many of them and prefer my own scent selection. This gives me that option.
ITEM #2: Ise Miyake Perfume
I’ve used different types and still do, but Ise Miyake is my personal favorite. I’ve gotten many compliments on the smell and it seems to work with my body chemistry. It has a deep, aromatic, floral scent; on the heavier side in my opinion, but I prefer it over the lighter, more Spring time fragrances.
ITEM #3: IceBreakers breath mints
Never a fan of gum on a date, I keep a pack of breath mints on hand at all times. This is primarily for after dinner/coffee type situations.. you know what I’m talking about!
ITEM #4 Victoria Secret lotion
Guys go crazy over this stuff and I have no clue why. Don’t get me wrong, I use it for the soothing, moisturizing effect (especially because I tend to get dry skin rather easily), but it has a nice scent.
So that’s pretty much it. Seems to work as I’ve never had any complaints. Feel free to share your odor beating techniques and what you use to stay smelling fine and fabulous!
