I had my language mock this morning and an invigilator thought it was crucial enough to leave a note of my desk during it stating
'don't worry you're not in trouble but please speak to an invigilator after the exam'

Anyway when it finished an invigilator approached me nd asked
'Are you wearing perfume?'
like I had no idea what was going on and just awkwardly laughed thinking she was going to ask what it was or something but then she turns slightly more peristant
'is it coconut? It smells very coconutty'
and like I'm so confused I didn't put a lot on at all
'we are going to have to reconsider the seating arrangements because of you and rearrange the seating plan'

Like what???? What was that about?? Its artifical and I don't see why a body spray would contain any actual coconut in case of allergies

I have no idea what this is about does anyone have any insight on this? I didn't know smelling 'too much like coconut' was against the rules? I asked my friends and they said they could only smell it if they came super close to me and smelt me directly?

Not into an exam though, it would make a mess.

There's nothing wrong with it unless someone sitting near you has complained.. if they have a coconut allergy it could make them feel uncomfortable even though it'd be fine. It's like my brother has a peanut allergy and we bought fake peanut butter that tastes and smells real, and he couldn't stand smelling it. Or, if someone is unwell or something (your sense of smell can be twisted during pregnancy and other conditions) sitting next to any kind of strong smell might be off-putting. But if that's the case, they're the one with the condition, so perhaps they would be better sitting elsewhere.

It's much better smelling of lovely coconut than what most teens smell like in exams in my experience - sweat and fear!

If it's recent, and at an uninvestigated crime scene, I suggest using extremely concentrated acid and pour it over the body (especially the face and any areas with contact). This hides the evidence of the murderer and conceals the victim's identity if it is not already obvious. Set fire to the place they are in straight after to eliminate any potential clues such as fingerprints

Shea wouldn't tone it down and she left soon after.
She couldn't believe it's not butter...

There's really not much difference between smelling strongly of artificial fragrances to sitting there vaping.

It is odd, but if someone makes a complaint and it is distracting other candidates, then they have a point.

pretty sure it's bc you arent allowed smells which could be distracting in exams. Gum isnt allowed either obvs but they probably didnnt notice

How odd... would she rather you smelt bad? Or why not offer the solution of asking you to not spell like a coconut that day lol, instead of being extra about seating plans. Huh. Surely if it is that strong, everyone can still smell it?
