What is your problem? So I disagree with you, why be so nasty?

Hehehe, that's what I was thinking..that's the only reason for me to be that concerned..

My husband told me that when he was younger, he knew when a particular teacher was on her period because he could smell it.

Alrighty now, carry on! :P

internetchick a crotch sniffer? I agree that is a pretty harsh accusation.

Wouldn't they be better served being told that they are normal? I don't see how telling them to rub crystals on their lady bidness is helpful.
My thoughts exactly.

Then he needs to get over it. I doubt he smells like roses all the time either.... As long as she is clean and has proper hygiene he has no place being displeased with her natural scent.

Okay, this discussion reminded me of that disburbing scene from Silence of the Lambs when Clarice goes to visit Hannibal Lector.

And I agree, any man who says something negative about a woman's smell needs to be kicked to the curb immediately. A man that insensitive is undeserving of any goodies from my cookie jar.

If I'm worried about it on a particular day, I just take a shower or otherwise wash up beforehand. No need for douches or sprays or magic crystals.

I do realize that it's very strongly ingrained into some women (particularly in some cultures) that the female genitals are unclean and nasty and smelly, so I can see that the deodorant crystals would be the lesser of two evils if they are intent on doing something about the so-called problem. Better than douche or spray. But ideally women (and the men who love them) should just learn to accept and love their natural smell.

Not all odors are medical issues. Many healthy women have a naturally stronger odor than others. We've been socially conditioned to think we stink.
Whoa Red I was referring to a bad odour. I know everyone has a particular scent per se.

I don't need any magic anything on my lady parts but I see it like every other perfume, deodorant, makeup, etc. Letting your vagina and vulva be natural is as mother nature intended. So is not wearing makeup, shaving, wearing deodorant, perfume and all that other stuff. But many women like to do that or do it for their partner or for whatever reason. It makes them feel better about themselves. If using Summers Eve or deodorant crystals doesn't cause a health problem and makes people feel better about themselves then I think it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

I have never in my life came across a female and thought "wow, she sure has a strong feminine odor".

Agent compassion is right, if someone is that close that they can smell that area, then yes, a clobbering is definitely required.

Edited to add: Unless of course, you are in the midst of getting lucky. In that case, a little freshening up would be understandable.
That was exactly my point, and why I asked why people felt the need to freshen up instead of just waiting until their next bath/shower.

Maybe she's experiencing a not so fresh feeling.

Yea same here. To the original question - I just use my regular soap and water (Dove).

May be a little tmi but after my 3rd was born I've had a little "issue" w/ scent right around ovulation & my period. I went to see my gyno & she said NEVER to use those feminine washes but just plain old Dove (white) soap. She did prescribe a special balancing insert to use at those times, but it was so messy

I also use unscented Dove and water. And a couple of times a week I'll take the nozzle off of a vingar and water douche bottle and just do an extra rinse over the outside and in between.
