For the smell of god: Places I could never work in Crabtree Valley Mall...

~Monday, Labor Day~ I ate too much at a lunch-time cookout, and then slept like a slug late in the afternoon for two hours. By the time I got up, it was too late to get to my gym before it closed, it being on holiday hours today, closing at 7:00.

To that end, I did something I never do more than once a year. I went to the mall. And I only went there, because it was storming like crazy—precluding a walk around my neighborhood—and I wanted an out-of-the-humidity, air-conditioned place to meet my 30-minute daily walk commitment.

I ended up walking around Crabtree Valley Mall for an hour. At one point, I passed a store that immediately put my olfactory organs on high-alert, and I thought, "Oh my god. I could never work in that place. The smell alone would do me in."

On my next lap, whenever I passed by the entrance to a place that assaulted my nostrils, I snapped a picture of the store to place in my never-fill-out-a-job-application-for-this-store file:

Nice perfume. Must you marinate in it???
Bath & Body Works

Foot Locker

Stankin' wax!
Yankee Candle

Again with the perfume already!!!
The Body Shop

I'm pretty sure this is a clothing store, but all I smelled when I walked by was cologne!
Abercrombie & Fitch

OMG! These were some odoriferous cosmetics!!!
Lush: Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

I don't know if this is what was stinkin' up Lush's,
but these cakes of crap were piled high and deep in the window.

Some kind of cakes of soap or was or something in the window at Lush's
