Revulscent

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: re vull sent

Sentence: Smelvin believed variety was the spice of life. None of his grooming products were the same brand or scent. Stepping from the shower, drying himself off, Smelvin enjoyed the clingering scent of Irish Spring soap on his skin. After shaving his face and chest, to both, Smelvin liberally applied Brut ever-blasting after-shave. Before putting on his shirt, Smelvin thickly slathered Speedstick 24/7 under his arms. Smelvin combed his hair, then set and scented it, with stupor-strong Suave hairspray. He liberally doused himself with Aramis men's fragrance. As he wafted into work, his co-workers suffered ad nose-eam (ad nauseam), and sped off to their cubicles and offices, for Smelvin was totally revulscent.

Etymology: REVULSION, SCENTS. // Revulsion - feeling such a strong disgust one withdraws. Scents - smells and odors.
