Beyonce Hates The Way Jay-Z Smells And Other Pregnancy Smell Tales

When I was pregnant with Henry I loved the smell of paint. And turpentine. Not exactly the healthiest thing to be inhaling, yeah?

Lucky for me the newsroom in which I worked was under construction so on my way to the vending machine for my daily diet of whatever my spare change could buy, I’d loiter near freshly painted walls smelling to my heart’s delight.

Weird, right? Paint and turpentine. But you know what smell I absolutely couldn’t stand… Yep, you guessed it! Beyonce and I finally have something in common…

According to the Daily News and just about every other media outlet, Beyonce hates the way her man smells.

“My nose is like doot doot doot,” the 30 year old singer said, imitating a radar. “I smell everything…
“If [something] smells bad, I smell it,” Beyonce revealed to Entertainment Tonight. “My husband’s fragrance, this one that I always love, I hate right now.”

Word. My husband uses Right Guard deodorant and I don’t know if he bathes in the stuff or what but when I was pregnant with Henry the odor in the bathroom damn near killed me every morning. Had to air it out for hours after Serge finished with his morning ablutions and still, I swear the stuff lingered until his next application.  As Nicole White wrote last week, the pregnant nose always knows.

The other worst pregnancy smell ever? Dog food. I would retch every morning while feeding the dogs. Every morning.

Tell me, what was or is your absolute worst smell while pregnant?
