Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{October 3, 2007}   Smelling Like a Cupcake
Slowly, and without my really noticing, most of my scented products have become vanilla. Well, I suppose they haven’t actually become vanilla, but rather I’ve started buying vanilla scented things that I used to buy as a different scent.

It started when I bought Victoria Secret vanilla scented body spray on my first trip to Seattle. I’ve since maintained that VS vanilla scented body spray is my secret weapon for attracting the boys. Something has to explain the flock of hot boys that is following me around wherever I go.
When I stayed at my sister’s place in Toronto last summer, she commented on the body spray as follows: “You smell like a cupcake!”

Then one day I discovered vanilla mint toothpaste. The mint part of vanilla mint is quite subtle and I like that because I drink coffee on the way to work, right after brushing my teeth and I have to say that the usual super-minty flavour of toothpaste does not go with the taste of coffee. Vanilla is much better in this regard.

And now I have vanilla chai anti-perspirant. And I mean, really, who doesn’t want to smell like vanilla chai all day?
