Smells like Ambition
Apparently naming scents after what they actually smell like has become passe.
I went to buy some of my usual brand of deoderant the other day and I had a choice of ambition, optimism, genuine or powder fresh.
Since I could not open the packages and smell them in the store I had to guess at the scents before selecting one.
I ruled out powder fresh right away since most items that bill themselves as powder fresh smell like baby powder and I don't want people thinking of a nursery when I walk by.
Genuine was a tougher call, I like to think of myself as sincere. However, if I was going to genuine about the scent I put under my arms it would be one that smelled like sweat, so I nixed that one too.
Ambition also didn't appeal to me. What could it possibly smell like? Testosterone? Money? Corinthian leather? No thanks.
That left me with optimism, which I am wearing for the first time today and actually it smells pretty nice and refreshing!
