Daily Prompt: Fragrance

The smell of your aftershave

was too strong to be around people.

At first I thought I was the only one

who was having a hard time breathing.

But, everyone around me was backing up

or trying to smile through the smell in the hope.

That you would move along quickly so the fresh air smell

would come back.

As you left I took a deep breath and was relieved to smell something fresh

and pleasant to smell.

I hope to not smell that horrible overpowering smell again but unfortunately it probably

will pop up again.
