Detroit Smells, But It’s Not The People
(WINDSOR, ON) – Detroiters smell good, but, not so much their city. This news comes from a company that conducted a survey after it created a razor device with a fresh-scented handle. The shaving blade company Schick also found that “two-thirds of men (70 percent) feel it is hard to get going in the morning, with 43 percent indicating they don’t wake up with a feeling that they are ready for the day ahead.”
That statistic, the company thinks, might change with its release of the “first men’s disposable razor with a fresh, clean scented handle designed to help invigorate guys’ shaves and energize them for the day ahead.”
Those men who use electric shavers might miss all the benefits of scented razors. Of course, they could throw a little perfume on the electric device or consult some of the other perfumed devices men are now buying in great capacity.
Apparently, a majority of men when asked in the survey “agree scent has the power to evoke important memories (85 percent), positively affect their mood (92 percent) and behavior (76 percent), sharing that almost a third of men (33 percent) are buying more scented personal care products than the year before.”
The shaver company also found out that scents and other refreshing experiences are important in men’s lives claiming that “men’s desire for refreshment extends beyond their morning shave. From smelly bosses to local politicians, findings show that men desire improvement in different aspects of their lives.”
Smelly bosses. Who knew?
Well, turns out this is an issue for a few men in New York. The survey said some 30 percent “feel they have the smelliest bosses.”
When the data was collated, the surveyors determined that their city is the smelliest in America, rated as such with a mean score of 4.89 “with a majority of respondents saying the city smells like pollution and garbage.”
Detroit came in second in the smelly city category, with a mean score of 4.92, even though “a majority of people from Detroit feel they always smell good (57 percent).”
Who thinks they live in the sweetest smelling city? Turns out it is the sea-breezed people of Miami there “a majority (93 percent) of Miamians strongly appreciate the power of scent, saying their city smells ‘fresh’ with scents from the ocean.”
