'I hate my husband's perfume'

Feb 19, 2013, 02:05 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, My husband and I are blessed with two kids and our family life is going fine. But there is one thing about my hubby that I just don't like.

It’s his liking for this one particular perfume brand he adheres to no matter what. I can’t stand it but I’ve been silently suffering it all this while now. I don’t even know how and when should I put up this topic up for discussion. Can you please suggest a way to get rid of this olfactory disturbance?

Dear Pramita,
Goodness gracious! What stopped you from telling him all this while? It is not a question of life and death that you had to muster courage to tell your hubby about the ‘stink’ his perfume raises! Go tell him right now that his choice of fragrance makes you feel sick. I am sure he will be considerate and not dab liberally so that the ‘stink’ is less. Also, pick up some other brands and introduce him to the latest arrivals in the market. And remember next time if you don’t like something about your hubby you can tell him. You are his wife after all!
