Perfume is Not Just Expensive, It Causes Divorce Too

I have absolutely no scientific data to back up my hypothesis about perfume.  It is ridiculous enough though that I am sure I could get a grant from the NSF to collect the data and if I fished long enough I could find the evidence needed to support my hypothesis.  But, that is a whole other topic.  Back to perfume.

There have been studies into how people react to other peoples pheromones.  It has been shown that people are attracted to other people based on how they smell even if they are not conscious of it.  Pheromones are subtle.  You may not even realize that you are sensing them.

For example, my family was visiting and I had this weird feeling that something just was not right.  I could not put my finger on it, but something seemed off.  My family was going to the local amusement park that day.  I decided not to go because of that uneasy feeling I had.  I could not shake the idea that something bad was going to happen.  My family was not at the park long when my mother passed out from dehydration and had to be taken to the ER.  I believe that my uneasy feeling probably came from my mother’s change in body chemistry due to the dehydration.  She probably smelled different; I just did not realize it.

So what does this have to do with perfume and divorce?  Let’s say you meet someone that you are very attracted to, fall in love and get married.  The whole time they have been wearing perfume or cologne.  Then they run out of that perfume and stop wearing it.  You wake up and find yourself not attracted to them in any way,  but you can’t quite figure out why.  You start to fight a lot and then get a divorce.  Now if they had not worn perfume in the first place you would never have mistakenly thought you were attracted to them.  You would have married someone else and lived happily ever after.

So save your future marriage and save some money at the same time.  Don’t buy perfume.  And, if you ever have an unexplained uneasy feeling make everyone around you drink a big glass of water.
