Perfumigate

Created by: Nuwanda

Pronunciation: per-fume-i-gate

Sentence: I didn't have time to shower. I could mitigate the bed head with enough product--the wet look is in again, right?--but what to do about my gameyness? I decided to perfumigate, but didn't have any of my signature scents available. I ducked into a convenience store, grabbed the latest issue of Vogue and rubbed all the perfume samples all over my dirty jeans and shirt. On the upside, I got a whole section to myself in the movie theater!

Etymology: Perfume combined with fumigate
