Smelling like an onion

Somehow I do not have a liking for foreign products. They are made to suit the conditions out there.

The latest product that has disappointed me (and as a result will see a significant drop in sales) is this so-so foreign deodorant that I bought. Entices the girls all right, but by noon I start smelling like an onion. You might argue that an onion is an aphrodisiac. Yes, I agree. But what is the point in me alone reaching a high?

The deo is custom-made for Italy, the country where it was made. And Italy is a cold place, just like its coldest export to India so far – Ms Sonia Gandhi. There you would sweat less; that is unless you are a Roberto Baggio.

I was misled by the fact that the deo was popular in Italy. On the contrary, Indian made Axe-effect, has been amazing. The fragrance lingers on till evening.

Till this can of deo gets used up, I have been reduced to humming the Bryan Adams song “Please forgive me.” I wonder why Adams had to sing this song. After all, he is from Canada and people don`t sweat much!
