I had a woman return a used up candle because the glass container 'mysteriously' exploded. We had a no-hassle return policy so she got a new candle.
She then brought up two different candles and told me she didn't have a functioning sense of smell. She wanted me to describe the smells to her. Fine and dandy.
I told her the first candle had a clean smell, very subtle.
She said, “So it’s a strong smell?”
I, and a dictionary, would like to define 'subtle' for you, lady...
