Grade AAA 100% Dishwashing Liquid
Realities for Men goes on with a little bit of citrus, but within five seconds, you are keenly aware of a scent that can only be described as dishwashing liquid. You know those dishes that the dishwasher doesn't do a good job on and you have to put in a sink of hot water with Dawn or Palmolive? You know that smell? That's what Realities for Men is. (As a man, I've made peace with the fact that I know this smell. If one trip through the dishwasher doesn't clean the plate, I've learned that three more trips through the dishwasher won't clean it either.)

Technically, this scent contains citrus and patchouli, mingled with a soapy accord. Not-so-technically, it's dishwashing liquid accord, which means a sharp citrus note tries to attack something faintly rancid (decaying food particles?) smothered in S-O-A-P. It does nothing for me, and what's worse, my skin amps it. The annoyingly generous projection finally recedes after six hours, and by eight, it becomes a skin scent, but oh man, a pungent skin scent. My advice? Buy some Palmolive or Dawn and fill up the sink if you really want to know what Realities smells like; at least that way you can get last night's stuck-on ham off your plates.
