    General CommentIt's about a guy who is reminded of Ex-Girlfriends whenever he smells certain perfumes, he's finally found a girl who doesn't wear perfume, and "that's why [he] wants to spend [his] life with [her]".

    General CommentWhat Shannon said. The gentleman in the song remembers his exes when he smells certain perfumes, so he's happy his new girlfriend/fiancee/wife/bride eschews the wearing of fragrances. BTW, the fragrances mentioned in this song all do really exist and can be purchased at any number of fine retailers. :-)
