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

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
