Maria Olivia da Silva is believed to be the oldest woman in the world, she recently celebrated her 125th birthday and I wonder if she would be offended if someone told her she smelled like an old lady?
I always wonder the specific age of these people who throw around the term "old lady." What constitutes an old lady to them? If I were to go to my former elementary school tomorrow, the kids there would probably think that I'm an old lady compared to them! What if I went to a nursing home instead? I certainly couldn't be considered an old lady there or can I?
And what exactly does an old lady smell like? My attitude is a lot like my Grandmother's was when it comes to fragrances. My Grandmother owned many, many bottles in her lifetime and one of the fragrances that she wore in heavy rotation before she passed away was Happy by Clinique
. I'm sure those who wear Happy wouldn't like to hear that listed among old lady fragrances!
I think the people who throw around the term "old lady" don't realize that they themselves will one day be referred to as an old lady!
