The Scent of a (fake) Suntan

The sun has made a few cameo appearances in Switzerland since October, otherwise it is like we are living in the pre-color television era–greyscale. So no one should have a tan, which is fine by me as I am the missing link between the pigmented and albinos.

Suspiciously, my husband is tan. While I applaud his safe-sun approach to skin color, fake bake formulations do leave a scent trail that I could never adequately describe, until now.

ImageIt was our son Kendall who sniffed out his father’s odd scent and remarked, “Dad, you smell like a nut…a bad nut.”
