I call it rideshare reek. Let me apologize for being impolite but the last few times I’ve taken a Lyft, a serious issue has arisen. Arose? Stuck to me. I’m talking odor. So let’s talk odor. It’s not a bad odor. I simply end up reeking of perfume/cologne when I exit the car. And the smell sticks to you for hours. So a few questions. First, is this happening to others as well? Second, is the perfume/cologne used by drivers to mask smelly passengers? It feels like the height of awkward to mention it to the driver. Should I leave a comment in the app?

I really just want to make sure I’m not losing my mind – so is this happening to others too? If so, about how often does it happen.
