I’d really like to know why we’re selling soaps now. I’d like to really know even more why half of the soaps we sell smell terrible. There have been plenty of occasions wherein I open up a box of gift/knick-knack products expecting nothing more than odd post-it note holders only to have my olfactory assaulted by the most obnoxious mixtures of flowers and nature words. It’s as if these soap makers kidnapped old, hyper-perfumed cat ladies and boiled them down into compressed balls of wax. I would get headaches from unpacking that stuff and I couldn’t shove it out of the receiving room fast enough. It stunk up the whole department!
