Scientologists Don't Use Scents
imagine, but not every tale from the cult involves criminal
activity. Sometimes it's just plain old bizarre, like this one
have noticed (especially public Scientologist) that the staff
of Sea Org organizations have very strong opinions about how
one smells. In particular, Sea Org members can't stand the
smell of scented products. How odd it is that ALL Sea Org
members reject the smell of perfume or cologne and act like
you have committed a crime if a person should indulge in such.
indeed! All Sea Org members are trained to reject "scents"
because Hubbard ordered it so. In the same matter in which
he ordered Sea Org members are forbidden to own a television
This goes a long way to explain why Sea Org members seem so
out of touch with just about any and everything, fashion and
trends for sure. It's all to clear to free thinking people
why the control of information is important if you want to
create a "loyal" goon squad and keep them in the
dark. Even someone as stupid and destructive as Adolph Hitler
knew that one!
there is a reason and an exact story of why Sea Org members'
are not allowed the simple pleasure of being able to experience
smells or perfume or scented products, and I'll tell it to
was 1984. Hubbard was on an up swing of one of his manic depressive
mood swings. Hubbard started out writing something about the
use of computers on the whole track ( whole track = existence
and civilizations that pre date any earthly recorded time
period) and somehow got into a rant about tar-coal perfume.
Hubbard discovered that everything he touched had the scent
of rose perfume, which was derived from tar-coal. Hubbard
said the rose scent permeated all new clothes as the sizing
used on new clothes was the same tar coal rose perfume that
greatly irritated his nose and skin. Being highly sensitive
because of his OTness, Hubbard quickly lost patience for anything
that smelled of rose perfume. I guess you could spend a day
reading all of the "advices" Hubbard came up with
concerning rose perfume. Like the BT (body thetan) story,
Hubbard discovered EVERYTHING smelled like rose perfume! All
of his clothes smelt like it, every piece of paper sent to
him from Int Management and RTC smelt like it. The poor man
was plagued by cheap rose perfume and when Hubbard was miserable
everyone around or connected to him shared the misery.
was an avid smoker of cigarettes, Kool non filter to be exact
and smoked no less than three packs a day. Anyone who smokes
or has smoked knows the sense of smell is greatly affected
by the fact of smoking.
and projects were fired out to find or create a line of soap
products that were scentless. Chemist were hired, and a new
line of soap products were created. At great expense, a new
line of shampoo and conditioner, laundry soap, body lotion,
hand soap, industrial cleaning soap....you name it. All the
while, the hysteria created by Hubbard for the dreaded rose
perfume got worse and worse.
was close by Golden Era Productions out in Hemet and had a
team of 6 people that did nothing but clean a house he lived
in a few times a week. This team was also responsible for
doing his laundry. Hubbard and his messengers developed new
tech for handling his laundry. The procedure was to take a
brand new shirt or other new article of clothing and wash
it is six separate tubs of water by hand three times. That's
18 separate wash cycles! To rinse, the article was rinsed
in six different tubs of clear water three times. The end
product was a new shirt that was now thread bare and falling
apart. Not to be stopped, there was a special sewer posted
that would sew up the ruined shirt. The shirt would be dried
outside on a clothes line, put in a plastic bag and sent on
had a fit again as he said he could still smell the rose perfume.
He figured the smell was coming from the plastic bags his
thread bare clothes were being sent to him in. Lower conditions
were assigned to everyone connected with the project as poor
little Hubbard had no clothes to wear!
this same time period, Hubbard had ordered Scientology celebs
to create a music score for his books, the Mission Earth series.
I'm sure some here have had the unfortunate experience of
hearing this load of crap. Very similar to the Battlefield
Earth movie, crap. Anyway, it was time to mix the album down
and the same producer/engineer who mixed Michel Jackson's
Thriller album was employed at great expense to try and do
something with the terminally ill music score project. The
name of this person is Bruce Swadean (sp?). Bruce came with
his wife as I guess he was afraid to be alone in Scientology's
top management facilities. After two days in the studio, a
staff member was told to handle Bruce's wife because she was
stinking up Hubbard's studio with her nasty perfume. Of course
Davey is the one who ordered this to be done. A girl named
Mary, got the task and she pulled Bruce's wife aside while
Bruce was in the studio trying to raise the unborn dead and
told her she would have to handle herself as she was stinking
up Hubbard's nice music studio with her smelly perfume. To
say the least, the woman was horrified by the shear rudeness
of what had just happened and ran into the studio and told
her husband about it.
missing a beat, Bruce stood up and told Rick Cruzen, Charlie
Rush, Peter Slesh (sp?) just how wacky he really thought they
all were and left the building never to be seen or heard from
again. No matter how much Davey had people beg Bruce, he would
not come back to the Golden Era Production concentration camp.
conditions for all concerned again! See how the misery is
piece of paper sent to Hubbard from Int Management and RTC
had the dreaded rose perfume smell and lower conditions were
flying around in CMO Int. Now the only way to send something
to Hubbard was through Marc Yeager who was the Commanding
Officer of CMO Int until he messed it up too. Hubbard decided
Marc Yeager was full of overts as his perception had to be
way down if he was not able to smell the rose perfume! Everyone
thought Marc had a good nose because between Davey, Marc and
me, Marc was the only one who did not smoke cigarettes, wrong
again. Marc is now writing up his overts and withholds and
doing conditions for sending up the dreaded rose perfume smell
horrified the hell out of me because I knew my ticket was
next. Sure enough Davey and Vickie tell me it's my turn to
go to the ovens and neither one had any advice as to what
I should do. Both had already been smelling everything that
was sent up to Hubbard and they missed it too. Davey smoked
at least 2 packs of Camel non filter cigarettes and I smoked
about a pack and a half. What was I suppose to smell?
going through my mind was what had I done to get put in this
horrible position? How much pain and humiliation would I have
to suffer before it was over for me and just how over for
me would it be? Every bit of perfume had been taken from all
the staff and destroyed. Half of the newly created line of
scentless products were found to be defective and further
test were being done to find the rest defective. I remember
sitting in my office with boxes of dispatches and laundry
ready to be sent to Hubbard, all I had to do was give it the
old smell test and all would be fine. When you are alone there
is no one to pretend for. I opened the boxes, looked inside
and put the lids back on, no reason to smell. I sat there
for what I thought would seem a reasonable amount of time
for a person to smell this crap. During this interlude, I
was wondering if I had recently done anything that would make
Hubbard like me and thus spare me. A few things came to mind
(and I'll tell these later) but to tell the truth, I didn't
feel very confident for keeping my head.
the stuff went up and came back. Hubbard was pleased and said
the smell was greatly reduced, though not fully handled. Hubbard
discovered the dreaded rose smell was coming from the ink
in the pens people had used to sign off that they had checked
for smells and found none! I can't tell you how relieved we
all were, me especially. After a few weeks Hubbard forgot
about the dreaded rose perfume smell and found other things
to rant about.
had an amazing ability to write down EVERYTHING and soon a
new commandment was issued about smells. Hubbard even tied
it in with the psychs evil plan to kill us all. This is why
and how the whole group of Sea Org and even most Scientology
public can't/won't wear scented products.
can say is thank God Hubbard found out about visteril before
he passed on. Life for the poor Sea Org members and public
could have been a lot worse.
