Like a fresh ocean breeze and sun....like the aroma of all the flowers combined in Hawaii.....but I'm just guessing here.

thank you Ann, before the tacky responses hit!

I think a mermaid would smell like the wood of an old three master, the fragrance of two inch thick rope, and the metal aroma of a big iron anchor, with the delicacy of salt air bleached canvas on top......

I thought this was really interesting.

I definately think Gregg as complementing Cher here. Mermaids are never ugly. There is definately a romantic element to them. Mysterious, unknown...fresh smelling I would think. Like the ocean, breeze..relaxing.

Pretty stinky and smelly and fishy. Gregg could have chosen a better analogy......"She smelled like an Angel" works a lot better for me. And I won't elaborate on fish smell.......

Is there any doubt - just like a manatee which is beautiful and fascinating. Below is from an article on the Internet:


Any seafarer attracted to a manatee, that author concluded, must have been delusional from rickets.

Manatees as mermaids? C'mon.

But historians, folklorists and scientists say it's no joke at all.

The order Sirenia, to which the Florida manatee belongs, is from the Latin siren, or mermaid. The myth of a part-woman, part-fish with great seductive powers -- and no scruples -- has existed for centuries. As long as there have been seafarers, it seems, there have been mermaids to mess with their minds.

The mermaid has occasionally been depicted in writing and art as ugly, but she is more often pretty, if a little lewd. In her brashest incarnation she sings loudly and hoists her split tail around her head, like some tantric yogi -- a far cry from Disney's doe-eyed and marriage-minded Ariel.

"Usually these legends of singing sirens were made by sailors as explanations for why they were led astray," said Natalie Underberg, a folklorist at the University of Central Florida.

The New World sirens were a gentler, if homelier, lot.

Sailing near the Dominican Republic in 1493, Christopher Columbus described in his log some "female forms" that "rose high out of the sea, but were not as beautiful as they are represented." They did not, it's worth noting, wreck his ship.

Anthony Piccolo, a professor of literature at Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y., said Columbus was mentally primed for mermaids when he saw what history holds to be manatees. Folklore and early travelers' tales featured mermaids aplenty, and the old maps of the known world, including those Columbus consulted, "were always fringed with mermaids and monsters."

In 1614, English explorer John Smith claimed to have seen a mermaid in the Caribbean, and was more impressed than his Italian forebear.

"Her long green hair imparted to her an original character by no means unattractive," he wrote in his log, adding that he'd "begun to experience the first effects of love," when the mermaid turned over and revealed her fish parts.

Even present-day observers have discerned human attributes in sea cows. In the 30 years that James Powell, a biologist with the Wildlife Trust in St. Petersburg, has worked with manatees, "there have been times when they come up out of the water and the light has been such that they did look like the head of a person."

"If you were expecting to see a mermaid," he said, "you'd see this back and tail come up with no dorsal fin" -- as many mermaids are drawn.

keeping in mind I love Manatees, we r fortunate to have an occasional Mama Manatee and calf entertain us in our back yard, and are installing a beautiful tiled mural of a Manatee and calf in our master bath. (The children's bath has a lovely tiled Mermaid mural)

{Is there any doubt - just like a manatee which is beautiful and fascinating}

however, I dare say, rather than beautiful, a Manatee is one of those rare creature that is so darn funny-looking, they become endearing and cute, especially considering their incredibly gentle nature.

the long green hair spoken of would likely be long green sea-grass.

Manatees r vegetarians , and I have often seen them with long strands of sea-grass cascading thru the rippling water (from their mouths) which might be mistaken for long strands of luminous green hair.

add to that, Sailors have been known to imbibe in ther share of good rum while out at seas

I agree with rob. He should have used a better analogy. He meant no harm.
It is pretty damn funny though.

Obviously you all haven't spent much time pondering on the Disney classic The Lilttle Mermaid or purchased any of the bath products associated with the movie. They also had a body spray for the young girls that smelled delicious. I still think the mermaid comment was one of the best and most poetic in the book.

Im with you Ann. I too found it to be extremely complimentary and poetic.

I asked my 10 year old Grandaughter what she thought a mermaid would smell like. Her answer was - " fresh salty ocean and good "

as far as much of the wording, I cant imagine GA even dictating the cuss words...

i remember years ago, he may have threw in a cuss word here or there in song, but that stopped long ago.

Gregg may have a lyric meltdown now and then, but seems to me, very careful of not cussing and such imho

So, if I'm on a date with a woman and I tell her she smells like a mermaid, she is going to think it's a compliment, and think I'm being poetic?
