Wake up and smell the coffee, folks. It’s time to learn how to describe scents in English. Slow dialog: 1:20 Explanations: 3:13 Fast dialog: 13:57 Kitty: Oh, smell that. Isn’t that delectable? Pepe: Yes, it’s pleasant. Kitty: Pleasant? It’s heavenly. It has a nice fruity scent, not too sweet. Pepe: If you say so. I don’t want to buy anything that has a strong perfume smell. I’m a guy. Kitty: I know, but you want to exude a sexy scent that captivates the opposite sex, right? Pepe: I’m not sure about that. I just want to smell fresh and clean. Kitty: All right, how about this one? Pepe: Uh, it smells musky. Kitty: Musky is good. Musky is sexy. Pepe: Not to me. Let’s stick with something basic. I’m buying this one. Kitty: But that one smells like detergent! Pepe: Yes, because that’s what I’m buying – detergent for my clothes. I don’t need any fancy scents on my clothes. Kitty: Have it your way, but you’re missing out on a chance to lure women with your scent. Pepe: I’ll pass up that chance, thank you very much. If I follow your advice and buy this perfume-smelling detergent, women will definitely get the wrong idea about me! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
