Geir Ness

I'm posting this since it was talked about on this weeks show. I was laughing at my desk this morning when the podcast crew were making fun of Geir.

I have met Geir twice at Epcot, Sept. 2005 and Sept. 2008. I didn't like the Eau de Parfum for Men until I got back home since the smell is so overwhelming in the shop in Norway (he sprays everyone that walks by). Once I realized I liked it I had to buy it online. I use very little of it because it does have a strong smell. A lady that works with me has the Laila for women and likes it a lot.

Anyways, I'm not sure where I'm going with this except that Geir is a nice guy, if not a little bit too pushy with his product. I can't imagine being stuck on a cruise ship with this guy chasing you around trying to apply his product. Oh well, it made for a funny podcast.

I didn't quite understand the reference, since I wasn't on the cruise, but I kinda felt sorry for the guy.

I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

He was actually very nice - although he did squirt me several times and massaged my hands. He asked where we were from and talked for a bit about some realtives that he has that live not too far from us. We saw him leaving his stateroom one morning (which was on deck 2 - I was a bit surprised at that) to go to the gym, and he was all done up and smelling good.... Not what a normal person looks like when they go to the gym

My DH loves that cologne and wears it often. Every time we go to EPCOT it seems like we see a sign that Gier is there or will be there soon. We laugh that he isn't even really from Norway - he lives in EPCOT in one of those cute houses in Norway! Now we know he vacations on DCL! If I tell DH that Gier was on the podcast cruise, I MIGHT have a chance of getting him to do the next one

He was very kind. He gave my mom and me free samples. The line "he is where rainbows come from" had me laughing for hours after

He gave us a ton of samples too. Infact I'm using them so that the bottle I currently have lasts a bit longer, or at least until Sept when we go to WDW. I'll buy it there. Maybe Geir will be there and I can get him to sign the bottle.

My daughters and I use Laila. He gave me a few samples on the ship, too. Meg was thrilled and stuck one in her purse for prom!

He was very nice...though he wears the tightest dress pants I have ever seen....hopefully he has no plans on having children!!
BTW, I think his cologne helped me cover up my apparent smell of "butt" !

I agree!!! I walked by the shop where he was sprtizing people and couldn't believe how tight his pants were. And it takes alot for me to do a double take.

ok so let me get this straight cause I didn't quite understand either -

Geir is a Norweigen who created the Laila and the cologne whatever it is called - for men? And he occasionally is at Epcot and on the cruise ship trying to push his product? yes? And apparently, he is very "rainbowy?"

My hand will never be the same....Geir kidnapped it for about 15 minutes.

And the pants are very tight.


And he's very nice, and loves to give away free samples, and gift cards, and loves to autograph things (he was even autographing the samples...LOL!). It was fun to talk to him, or rather, to listen to him as he chattered away like a monkey and massaged and lotioned my grody garden-weary hand.

To say the least.
