Le Lens Eau Du Toilette

So, I don't know how long this has been going on, but this morning, despite my ever present early morning grogginess, something caught my attention for the very first time...or a question that was long overdue finally presented itself.

"What scent is this body spray?"

You should know, I rarely concern myself with scents. Why? Because I am anosmic--which means that I don't have a sense of smell and well, when you can't smell, you forget about all of the lovely people who can smell until someone speaks up in a confined public setting, begging to know what that WRETCHED STANK is. And that's when I remember that I can't smell and ultimately conclude with my paranoia that I must be the aformentioned fowl stench until I can confirm by someone that I trust that the reek is in fact, not me. Welcome to my paranoid, neurotic life. 

As long as I can remember, I have never been able to smell. I could go on and on about what this is like, but for the sake of this post I will stay on topic. Back to the body spray.

"What flower would make this aquamarine blue fragrance?", thought I as I spritzed myself with a sleek, Sephora looking mini-body spray with a label that read "i-SERIES".

"It probably has some association with Switzerland, or Scandinavia - probably got it free at IKEA when I bought a bookshelf....where's the fine print?..."

Then I read the most minute words;  Safe and effective on any lens or coating


Yep. I've been wearing lens cleaner as a body spray. Lens cleaner, people. Lens cleaner.

This happened. And who knows how long it has been going on. At least there's quite a bit left in the bottle. That's got to be a good sign.

Seriously! Would it kill them to place a giant eye-ball on their bottles?

Can anyone tell me what lens cleaner smells like? Please, tell me it smells like lavender or rose petals. I beg of you!


  1. Lens cleaner generally smells like Windex. Which smells a bit like rubbing alcohol and pine sol. It's really not too bad. At least you smell clean! ;)

  2. I had a feeling it would smell like Windex...but the buck stopped there because I had no idea what Windex smells like. Thanks for the nice description! You are definitely someone I could trust!

  3. The lens cleaner I have and the one my boss has at work here is scentless. So who knows! I've never once thought you smelled bad! :) You are very much a put together lady!

  4. This post should win a webbie. It had me laughing like a loon (which is clearly an acceptable Midwest phrase) for at least ten minutes. Don't worry. No one noticed, I'm sure. ;)
