What’s That Smell?

I hate shaving, and if I could get away with it, I wouldn’t bother.  But since the wild-man Grizzly Adams look tends to put people off (No, ma’am, I’m not a thug/psycho killer/robber/rapist, so you can relax the hand on your purse and put away the pepper spray.), I put up with the irritation and annoyance.

I forget exactly where I saw or heard about it, but someone recommended Aveeno Therapeutic Shave Gel for those who have trouble with nicks, cuts, and razor bumps.  It sounded like it’d be worth a try, so I bought some and found that it worked fairly well.  When the can ran out I went to the store and saw their Positively Smooth Shave Gel sitting next to it and its claims to let you shave less often and to reduce irritation caught my eye.  So I bought some of it.

So far, it works great.  It claims to be “lightly fragranced,” and it isn’t too strong.

But something about the scent kept bothering me.  I’d smelled it before, but it was bugging me that I couldn’t place it.  Then it hit me.  It smells like Play-Doh!

I’m guessing that Aveeno didn’t set out to make it smell like Play-Doh.  But, interestingly enough, there is such a thing as Play-Doh Cologne.  The mind boggles.
