If you’re one of those average students then you’ll probably understand the roots of this concern about being on transit.
Public transportations are, of course, for everyone. Regardless of gender, status and career, if you are inside of the same vehicle that means you are on equal grounds. That being said, it is likely that you will encounter different types of smell and you should always bear in mind that foul odour is already a part of your everyday routine.
However, the concern doesn’t lie on the presence of foul odour. It is the opposite. Traveling in the morning is my favorite part of the day. It is on this time that people are still dandy and fresh. Fresh out of the shower and all that.
The problem lies with those that seem to have no moderation about their application of perfume. Applying cologne is not a necessity but it is something that most people do in order to make themselves presentable for others. Even I apply cologne from time to time.
Does it not annoy you, when you are enjoying the fresh smell of dew in the morning air and suddenly a sickly sweet smell of chocolate and strawberry erupts in your nasal passage?
Seriously, a few wisp here and there should be enough. There is not need for you to bathe yourself in perfume. And knowing that your cologne has a rather strong smell. Please be mindful of your application.
