Just applied some- got to see clients at 3pm.

Will the tan have "taken" by then ( it does say takes 3 hrs but I am not convinced) and if I don't shower before then is the smell as noticeable to to thers or just me?

It probably will still pong, I normally put mine on before bed and find the smell gets a bit stronger as it develops.

What brand is it? it should have developed pretty well by 3pm, you could put an extra layer on tonight before bed if you want it a little darker.

I would probably have a shower as late as poss before the meeting. You won't feel comfortable if you're worrying about the smell.

It's Clarins gel which I mix 50/50 with body lotion.

I don't ever use it at night as it comes off on the sheets- I wear short nighties!
