The only person who does so at the psychiatric hospital I work at is one of the doctors. But he smells so damn good.  He makes all the women swoon with his scent.  Other than that, I don’t really care for the drowning of cologne.

They have no sense of smell?

No, I honestly think they believe it’ll attract more women.  Hahaha.

Not just at work, EVERYWHERE.  Half the time these people are married!

If I’m in public, I have no qualms coughing and carrying on (“Oh dear gosh what smells like cat piss?!” *hackhackhackgaspwheezedie*).  

At work, clearly you can’t do that, since you see the people every day.  One of my coworkers was complaining to me that he didn’t understand why some people had to bathe in odor, it gave him a headache.  I was surprised that someone else was like that, usually people tell me I’m just extremely sensitive and to suck it up.

I would keep the door closed to keep the breeze out, but after some people would walk in, I’d have to leave the door wide open.  This coworker walks in one day and notices that I’ve got the door wide open, and all I have to say is the name of a habitual olfactory-offender.

And it’s not just a guy thing, I’ve encountered plenty of women who are just as bad. 🙁

I would take over powering cologne over body odor any day of the week. I work with technicians and a few of them honestly dont bathe. After a long day of sweating, the smell is pretty rank.

I have no idea.  I actually like my SO better without any cologne.  I can’t stand the way most men’s cologne smells.

It isn’t just men, but women.  My boss has to bathe in it.  It’s awful and makes me gag.

No idea! And many strong perfumes give me horrible headaches. Polo makes me gag and Estee Lauder does the same.
