Waygook.org users Chinguetti and Aristocrat literally just taught me a whole bunch about something I never knew about. I never understood the difference between the different types of perfumes.

I used to wear Burberry London (not sure if it was EDC, T or P - look at me using terms I just learned) in the winter, and Hugo Boss XY in the summer. I have a weird body chemistry and everything I've ever tried has ended up smelling bad on me, except those two worked somehow.

I just find it fun to chat about, particularly as I love procrastinating when I have assignments due.

The last 3 things are performance, sillage and projection.

Performance is how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. EDP generally lasts longer, not always.

Projection is how far away from your body the fragrance projects. Can people only smell it when they hug you or can the smell it from a few meters away? When going to a club, you're generally looking to get noticed so more projection helps by announcing. When you're expecting to get lucky and want something your partner will enjoy as they get close, it's better to have the scent be discovered.

Sillage is the scent trail left behind when someone wearing a fragrance walks past, kind of like the ripples after dropping a stone in water. We've all had to stop walking for a second to take in the alluring fragrance of the person who just walked past or had our moms instruct us to open all the windows in the living room after one of our gaudy aunts visited.

The fewer fragrances you plan on keeping, the more careful you need to be with what you buy.

Yeah, it's a precise science, lol. A lot of thought and care is behind it, and you can understand why most people can't be bothered with it. Most people just find something that they personally like the smell of and that's within their price range, then hope for the best. Sometimes that works out for them, sometimes it doesn't, but they're not always aware of when it doesn't, haha.

These don't really exist here in Korea, but back in the States a lot of the people they have working behind more of the upscale perfume counters are professionals who can not only find a perfume that YOU personally like the smell of but that which also works well on you. Some places even get down to the nitty gritty and have you fill out questionnaires about your diet and lifestyle so that they can zero in on a more specific selection for you.

And then they have those crazy places that will actually formulate a perfume specific to your body. The good boutiques that do this are really expensive, and with good reason, haha. I've heard of places here that will sort of do that for you, too, but they're more like, "What kind of scents do you like?" and then they'll slap those together and that's your custom scent, lol.

Yeah, jumping into a forum as a greenhorn and poopoo-ing on one of its oldest active members probably ain't the best idea.

I'm not above criticism, by any stretch, but man. What the hell is this?
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Finally bit the bullet and forked out some money to buy an air purifier.  Someone around me is still smoking and refuses to stop so hopefully this will sort it out and lower my blood pressure haha!

I'll cut and paste this comment into the raving thread if it actually works  ;D

Yeah. We have two, and they're definitely worth it. Also good to keep one in the kitchen, because frying anything actually puts a ton of oil particulates in the air, which are also not good for your lungs.

Nooooooooooooooo. You've played right into Samsung's hands. The more people that buy air purifiers the more the conglomerates like Samsung lobby the politicians to do nothing about the environmental emissions. Breathe that 2nd hand smoke in and play your part in saving the environment and the animals. For every air purifier produced the memory of the Korean tiger fades further and further into the realms of mythology.

Can I keep it running all day?  Just turn it on when I'm in the house?  Do the windows have to be shut for it to work like AC?

I recently ordered an air fryer. I have no idea how it work, but apparently it uses less oil than frying.
thanks to covid I got back into a big cooking buzz haha

Yoo Alex, seriously, an air purifier is a must-have item! Glad you finally got one, better late than never. Shut the windows and turn it on as soon as you get in from work and it'll clean the air in your apartment pretty quickly. If you open the windows I guess it'll still make the air in your room (marginally?) cleaner than outside but you'll also need to get a replacement filter sooner as you're essentially getting it to clean the whole atmosphere rather than just the air in your room lol
I never finish anyth

Don't skimp on the air you breathe at home or the water you drink.
