Just picked up some lady razors in Tesco, at the check out I noticed they have a scented handle!! Citrus scented no less* They smell like orange jelly worms.
What is the world coming to!!!

*exhibit A attached for proof of this ridiculousness

Lady razors?

Because you're a girl.

MrsJayy Wed 31-Aug-16 16:33:10

Just so any men in your life know it is a lady razor obviously 😂

They're in league with 'Always' confused

Tampax have started doing scented tampons i noticed earlier in sainsburys

It's incase you put it near your fanjo. Anything that goes near a fanjo must be scented or the world will end and men will be disgusted and their willies will fall off. Or some such bollocks.

The scent used in these scented products are always gross too. I'd love to be a fly on the wall in some of these product development meetings. I'd also like to know if sales increase once people hear that the handles smell all nice and that. hmm

No BertrandRussell not a girl but a lady

No razor has been near my fanjo for three decades. I can smell it from inside the bathroom drawers.
They had yellow ones too, possibly melon flavour.

The razor I can smell (for clarity sakes).

Maybe they got confused in the product development meeting.....scented handle/scented candle. Easy mistake to make. --explains why I have razors in candle holders on the mantlepiece--hmm

It's so your hand smells and therefore people know you have shaved, thus conforming to social expectations of female hair levels.wink

I have no idea why the handle has to be scented.
It's probably a gimmick [narrows eyes in thought]

Effendi Wed 31-Aug-16 16:45:15

I misread and thought you said scented candle,doh!

HappyAxolotl Wed 31-Aug-16 16:45:57

But they aren't pink and don't have "lady" printed on them! How do we know they are laydee razors for laydee gardens? confused grin

I wonder if blokes would buy them unawares and exposure to laydee perfume will make their bits fall off? confused grin

Buy a mooncup instead of tampons . However the scented razors I have utterly no advice for.....

HateSummer Wed 31-Aug-16 16:48:25

What in the hell? Why? I never buy "women's" razors. Why would the handles need to be scented though? I can imagine if they had a scented jelly thing above the blade part...but handles? Wtf?

SherlockPotter Wed 31-Aug-16 16:54:55

I guess it smells better than the floral scent from sanitary towels... What do the men's ones smell of?

BestZebbie Wed 31-Aug-16 16:59:13

I think that anything citrus-scented in particular is probably trying to suggest that it is Clean & Hygienic, like Jif and washing-up liquid. :-)

Bic do scented razors too, they're a godsend for me actually as I used to spend ages in Superdrug wandering up and down the aisles searching for ladies razors, now my sensitive lady nose leads the way and I don't accidentally end up with those horrid manly razors.

BreakfastAtSquiffanys Wed 31-Aug-16 17:06:54

Do they have different scents for the manly Man razors?
I'm assuming they smell of engine oil, chewing tobacco and horse sweat

BorpBorpBorp Wed 31-Aug-16 17:09:10

The successful modern lady is lithe and agile enough to shave off what little body hair she grows with the handle of the razor stuck up her nose, leaving her hands free for doily knitting.

Hence the need for scented razors.

Mistoffelees Wed 31-Aug-16 17:09:23

I wouldn't recognise any of those scents to be honest Breakfast being a lady and all, I have avoided all situations that would involve those things.

FlyingElbows Wed 31-Aug-16 17:12:18

Manly man razors smell of "stealth" "power" and "fusion". We can't smell them because we are weak. And laydees.
