you should soak that thing in some epson salts or someshit op!

at my old job, there was a cubicle group of four women and we all called it "the fish bowl" because it was surrounded by these glass partitions and they REALLY collected their... uh... essences.

i mean you would walk in to get something signed and BOOM that shit would hit you in the face.

maybe it was some king of force field they put up...

a gash field or something like a fallout zone.

a big salmon flavored invisible bubble.

"I didn't know there was a problem. I try to stay clean and neat, but if someone has a concern about my health or hygiene, I would be more comfortable discussing that with a female member of management or a health care professional."

All the opinions stated here suggesting the guy should be reported to HR for this single comment are absurd. One vague comment does not constitute a punishable offense. When he continues these comments or escalates then indicate your disapproval either with words or looks, never ever smile at him. If it continues beyond that OKAY then report him.

This PC hyper sensitivity mode that we are in as a society is only a step away from the thought Police. So it would be Taboo to say anything opinionated about anyone. Just think if an individual had a life full of violent crime and you called him a thug then he could bring a charge of liable against you and have you thrown in jail.

Yes, its an inappropriate thing for a male boss to say to a female, it is sexual innuendo and hes outta line, tell him now before it esclates, speaking from experience, it will only get worse. Smell your essence, oh brother, what a line, what a loser! If he doesnt get it that you do NOT want to be talked to about YOUR essesnce, then report him to HR. If you have no HR and no where to go, then just tell him, keep it up and you will sue him for sexual harrassent, or leave and get another job where your talked to like a human , not a female deer, waiting as prey for your hunter to pounce, he's sounds creepy,,,YIKES! I am surprised your husband doesnt wanna clock his ass!

Pheromones are suppose to make one more sexy than perfumes. maybe like canines that send out smells to attract the opposite sex.

I would probably just wait and see if the boss throws out any sexual innuendos before doing anything. It could be a harmless observation.

For me, it wouldn't be enough to report him.

You should do what you feel like you need to do, only YOU know hes making you feel. As far as protocol, I have been stalked before and it isnt a fun thing and sometime there is NO time like the present to draw attention to the matter, but again he could just be someone who talks like that and thinks its ok. For him to know its not and your uncomfortable,by all means let him know first, so he recognizes his error. He may apologize and never do it again. You have to make that call yourself! But some dudes are idiots and even after you tell them NO, they just dont get it! and a potential stalker, and Im not saying he is one, it wont make a difference what you do, he will keep it up and things escalate very quickly! Do not smile, chat, be kind, nothing, he will only misinterpet it all for your interest! Just my two cents!

I used to work in a department where many folk, men and women, wore some sort of scent. When I got off the elevator I would know exactly who was in the office that day. My boss was the worst.

Start wearing unscented cosmetics and shampoo. Stealth is a great thing!

You can also always be record him! It just depends on your level of comfort, you know how he is saying it. I find it very creepy hes talking about your ESSENECE at work, its really not approriate! Your essesnce isnt any of his concern. I would probably tell him to go smell up someone else's essence, and mind his own, but thats just me!
baaaaaaaaaaaaagh,,,the guy is stupid if he is your boss and is saying this kinda crap on the job!

Make sure you don't stink in any way.
If he says something like that again, walk behind his desk and brush against him when you hand him stuff during the day.

He didn't act like I stink, he smiled when he said it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1115740


I was thinking the same thing when I first read your post, but I wouldn't describe it as "you stink", because obviously, you didn't get the message. What AC1068935 was trying to say was not that you STINK--as in "Peee ewe, you stink!" -- but that you are probably wearing your perfume so heavy that as soon as you walk in the door, everyone can smell your "essence". In other words, they can smell your PERFUME. And please don't say that you don't wear perfume, but you DO wear COLOGNE. It's the same thing. BOTH SMELL.

Since you said that your boss was smiling when he said it, I wouldn't be so alarmed that maybe you "smell like a French whore" (for definition, see the #2 definition of [link to www.urbandictionary.com] ), which is a term that is often used to mean that you REALLY plaster it on, but maybe, rather, he was trying to compliment you by showing that he CAN smell you and that it IS pleasing "to smell your essence".

Now you have two choices:
1) Just take what he said as a compliment and forget about it.
2) If it what he says still bothers you, then stop wearing perfume at the workplace.

But seriously, if you Google 34 hospitalized after coworker sprays perfume [link to www.google.com] , you will find that there is a famous case where a woman came into work and sprayed on her perfume, and almost immediately, 34 of her coworkers had to be rushed to the hospital because of serious allergic reactions.

This syndrome is most likely caused by "cheap perfume" and these days, the "cheap perfume" could be very expensive. What makes it "Cheap" isn't necessarily the price, but how it's made. Rather than using natural essences, such as rose petals, many of the manufacturers today are using the cheaper method of using cheap extracts that are manufactured in a laboratory. These can often be very toxic to some people, as was witnessed at that workplace mentioned above. For that reason, many workplaces today have a ban on wearing colognes or perfumes, and that even applies to men wearing aftershave or colognes too.

Do you wear the same perfume all the time, maybe shampoo? It sounds like he was saying he can smell you coming in and doesn't have to look up to know its you. Like because you always have the same perfume, or some real good smelling shampoo. Could be his way of saying he likes your perfume?

It is pheremones. It is not a specific smell, per se, but an essence as your boss said. However, it is still a sexual comment, and inappropriate. Don't go to HR right now. Just tell him it made you uncomfortable, and to please refrain from making comments like that again. If he does not stop then go to HR.

And if you DO go to such extremes, you may be made to look like a fool for calling "Sexual harassment!" when all he was trying to do was to give you a compliment, as in "I think you smell nice when you come into the office". Honestly, if he were to have said, "You always wear such nice clothing, you look pretty!" would you go to HR and file a harassment suit? I think he was trying to say that you SMELL pretty!
