如何用婉轉的英文請外國男生香水不要擦那麼重

做我附近的外國人他每天都噴很重的香水~是男生,而且非常sensitive,我好幾次想跟他說我受不了那個味道~可是我怕講的不夠婉轉會傷了他的感覺,所以希望大家能告訴我如何用英文以最溫和的方式告訴他~希望以後不要擦那麼重!謝謝!

    Bryan, I hate to say this but I (really) mean you well and hope you'll take my advice. I think it's polite of you to wear perfume and sorry to be blunt, it smells pungent somehow. I don't what's wrong; you may be wearing too much of it (and I think it's why). By the way, why don't you try out a new perfume? It could suit you better and make you even more charming!

    Bryan,我實在不想這麼說,不過我是出自於一片好心,希望你會接納我的勸告。我覺得你擦香水不是不好,但恕我直言,我總覺得那味道太嗆鼻了。我不知道是哪裡不對勁了,或許是因為你香水擦過多了吧。話說回來,你怎麼不試試新香水呢?或許那會更適合你,甚至讓你更有魅力!

    What if he misunderstood you?

    若是他誤會了你又該怎麼辦?

    Bryan, I think you have misunderstood me. I'm neither criticizing men wearing perfume nor complaining about your perfume. It's just a piece of well-meaning advice of mine. I know it's a matter of opinion that some may dislike perfume, but I'm never sort of fussy person. I hope you understand I really didn't mean any harm.

    Bryan,我想你真的誤會我了。我既不是在批評男人擦香水,也不是在抱怨你用的香水。那隻是我一番好意的勸告。我知道一個人喜或不喜歡香水都是因人而異的事,可是我想讓你知道我不是個挑三揀四的人。我希望你能明白我絕對沒有惡意。

    The best way is to say that you are allergic to fragrance.

    A lot of Americans are allergic to fragrance and sensitive to the smell.

    This way, it will not hurt his feeling.

    I and my colleague have frequently told people that their perfume were too strong and we were allergic to the strong scent.

    People do get sick from the fragrance. It is very common in the US and he would be able to understand.

    直接買一瓶你喜歡的男性香水,送給他

    然後跟他說:

    Hey, maybe you wanna try this. It smelles "VERY GOOD", and I think the scent is very suitable for you. And...hope you like it!!

    我想他應該收到暗示,你也不會太失禮

  • 外國人很注重在外的禮儀

    所以他們習慣每天早上起床去洗澡

    把自己打理乾淨整齊

    以最好的姿態出門

    我在美國生活一陣子後 就開始養成這樣的習慣

    其實也不錯

    他們噴香水是表示一種禮貌

    他們不喜歡自己散發的體味(若有的話)影響到別人

    也會介意其他人散發奇怪的體味而不自制

    所以那應該是他原有的生活習慣

    表示對其他人及自己的尊重

    若你真的很受不了

    我的建議是

    在聊天時聊聊他的香水

    比如甚麼牌子的啦 味道啦

    然後說你很欣賞他這麼注重禮貌

    但是或許是你本身對香氣有過敏問題

    對他很不好意思

    是否換換別的味道 或者可以噴淡一點....等等

    我想或許比較不會傷到他

    ps.這讓我想到我在美國煮麻油鷄時

    我認為香得不得了

    卻差點把我美國的室友燻死

    他們有些人真的很難接受那味道

    畢竟不習慣

    我也覺得非常抱歉

    但是後來有溝通後就找出解決之道

    其實外國人很好溝通的

    也很感謝他們的包容

    祝你一切順利
