Plug-Ins, Stick-Ups, poupourri, scented candles, sprays, etc...etc...etc.

I walk into the house and BAM!!....the odor of a friggin floral shop clogs every alveoli in my lungs.
Scented oil fumigators are sticking out of every wall socket.

Whatever happened to "NO SMELL" ....is that no longer in fashion? NO SMELL = Clean.

If something stinks...that's nature's way of saying: "Hey...need a mopbucket over here.."

Her response: a snippy " Well, I like it...hmph".....Don't she realize I now have to come up with a 1000 excuses of why my clothes smell like a Louisianna whorehouse?

Guys don't do this....how would she like it if I sprayed the den down with WD-40....or mixed up some BreakFree poupourri.

For little I oughta go get me a sooper-sized bowl of beans'n'cornbread, 3 TacoBell taco's, and a head of cabbage for supper.....then By Gawd she'd have a reason for these fruity fag aroma machines.

Perhaps you stink already?

Sorry, the only proper manmade scent that one should apply to your den is Hoppe's, WD40 and Breakfree just don't cut it. Of course, it's also approperiate as an aftershave.

I love the commercials for them too - WTF? These women looking like they're about to orgasm over a fucking smell? Or how about "ScentStories"? Gayest thing ever. Or the couple who are searching all over their friend's house trying to find the plug-in? Or the couple that sit around looking at the "Puff" air freshener machine?

Oy vey.

Well I've heard that if they douche regularly that there shouldn't be a probl, . . . er ......

Nevermind.

Go do a google search for "Lampe Berger"

She Who Spends My Money is in love with hers

Toxic Effects of Air Freshener Emissions
Arch Environ Health 1997 Nov-Dec;52(6):433-41
Anderson RC, Anderson JH

Anderson Laboratories, Inc., West Hartford, Vermont 05084, USA.

To evaluate whether emissions of a commercial air freshener produced acute toxic effects in a mammalian species, the authors allowed male Swiss-Webster mice to breathe the emissions of one commercial-brand solid air freshener for 1 h. Sensory irritation and pulmonary irritation were evaluated with the ASTM-E-981 test. A computerized version of this test measured the duration of the break at the end of inspiration and the duration of the pause at the end of expiration--two parameters subject to alteration via respiratory effects of airborne toxins. Measurements of expiratory flow velocity indicated changes in airflow limitation. The authors then subjected mice to a functional observational battery, the purpose of which was to probe for changes in nervous system function. Emissions of this air freshener at several concentrations (including concentrations to which many individuals are actually exposed) caused increases in sensory and pulmonary irritation, decreases in airflow velocity, and abnormalities of behavior measured by the functional observational battery score. The test atmosphere was subjected to gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy, and the authors noted the presence of chemicals with known irritant and neurotoxic properties. The Material Safety Data Sheet for the air freshener indicated that there was a potential for toxic effects in humans. The air freshener used in the study did not diminish the effect of other pollutants tested in combination. The results demonstrated that the air freshener may have actually exacerbated indoor air pollution via addition of toxic chemicals to the atmosphere.

it's an air freshener that you inesrt cd-shaped discs into which change scents every 30 minutes or so. the commercial for it was incredibly retarded.

Well in my house I use them to cover up the dog smell. Which is worse, dog or apples and cinnamon?

I hear ya! I don't use sprays or stuff like that...But I like the scent of cinnamon and I do burn candles.
<shrug>
it's either that or the doggie scent.
I will admit to laughing out loud at the original poster's lament though...frikkin smack-ass funny!
