I'm glad you mentioned this! I sometimes feel badly about spraying my boy with something that smells good to me, but may well be a turn off to him. I've tried to "quit" doing it, but when he nuzzles my husband he soaks up the scent of his aftershave. I guess Chagall is just a poodle who's destined to be artificially fragrant! I honestly wrestle with "scenting" my poodle, when he should be allowed to enjoy the world scented as is. As always, you make good sense, fjm!

I use Plush Puppy OMG as a grooming aid. It is a detangler and I like the smell too. It does really seem to help with keeping mats from starting in between groomer visits. I also give my groomer Plush Puppy Black Opal shampoo when I take Lily for pre-trial groomings. It deepens her color and covers some of the grays that are starting to be noticed more and more in the coat.

It just seems that when they visit the groomer, they smell great and it seems to last for days, then when I buy the store ones, it fades instantly.

Both Vegas and Cairo have a nice natural scent, Vienna does not at ALL!

We also enjoy the way Beau smells au natural, especially right after a bath, but even weeks later. The only time he has ever had an objectionable odor was when he developed an ear infection, and I'm glad that wasn't covered up as we needed to know!
