? about perfumes

Hi I'm new here but I was wondering iif anyone knows about perfumes that have a lite smell to them but are good at covering up other smells.

My work makes me do some janitorial stuff and I worry that I don't smell clean after I'm done. I don't want anyone smelling something on my hair or clothes and think it was me? It's kind of embarassing me even tho no one ever has said anything.

Thank you all so much.

Re: ? about perfumes

I would try a light and fresh scented body spray, rather than perfume. There are actually various body sprays that are sold in the deodorant section of stores, such as those by Dove and other brands. These should help give you a fresh scent and should help get rid of other scents related to the work stuff. I like these for using after I've been outside on a hot day (even if I'm not sweating- clothes just tend to get that funny outside smell).

Re: ? about perfumes

Body mists and sprays are good but I like to carry a small bottle of perfume oil with me. I keep a couple in the car, a couple in my desk and a couple in my purse. They're small (1/6 oz.) so they can easily be tucked anywhere. The perfume oil is very concentrated so you'll only need 1-3 dabs for quick touch-ups. Very effective.

Re: ? about perfumes

I can guess your problem. You can carry body spray and hair spray with you. In a day you can use it 2 or 3 times. When you can get free time you can wash your face to see it fresh and also apply the body spray ans the hair spray. I think your problem will be enough less.
