Disscentfect

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dis sent fekt

Sentence: When JOY slept in, she would douse herself in perfume and not bother having a shower. Of course this was producing DIOR consequences for her colleagues. Her BOSS had decided that wearing scent was TABU, but TRUTH was, JOY was as addicted to perfume as if it was OPIUM. In fact, it was her OBSESSION. Because she was BEAUTIFUL, with lovely WHITE SHOULDERS, she felt the ENVY of some of her co-workers. If she had to GUESS, she'd say that it was either GIORGIO or NINA who had been her descenters. It was okay for him to light smelly cigars all day and for her to reheat stinky fish and cabbage dishes in the staff microwave. But if SHE was wearing a little perfume it caused a FRACAS, because it might disscentfect her fellows in the cube farm. Oh well, thought JOY, I don't plan to be here for ETERNITY, because I'm off soon to the RIVE GAUCHE in PARIS; COLOGNE in Germany and MY VOYAGE to the MEDITERRANEAN, thanks to winning the LOTTO!

Etymology: Disinfect - to kill pathogens, even good ones; Scent - smell, perfume or aroma; Infect - Contaminate with a disease or organism

Perfumiogate

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: pərfyoōməgāt

Sentence: Trudy was once told by a less-than-discreet boss that she might want to use a stronger deodorant. Her response was to perfumigate her body. If you were to visit her workplace you'd think that most of her coworkers were ill with all of the coughing and runny, red eyes. Strangely none of this occurs when she is absent.
