Re: Our natural smell (posted in other section)
You don't have to wear deodorant!-I don't! Spraying on rubbing alcohol and patting on baking soda does an amazing job of fighting odor and wetness without interfering with one's natural scent. My ex-boyfriends (and my new lover) have openly said that they like the way I naturally smell-and the feeling has been mutual! I never manage to go on too many dates/spend too much time around a guy whose sweat I couldn't appreciate, so now I see the early power of pheromones...
One great example I have is a male friend of many years, who I always liked platonically-at one point I decided I liked him beyond that, but he politely said "never". This was for the best, as my mature self would also say "never"-he is far too judgemental and sarcastic for me-but he is a lovely and intelligent friend, always. And he smells amazing, naturally, always.
When people don't like your smell, this too can change! Parsley will always be one of my loves. I love garlic with a passion, but don't indulge every day-and I am a diabetic, so my smell is naturally slightly sweeter than normal-not like acetone...The acceptable range for a diabetic's blood sugar is slightly wider than the normal range-so I smell just slightly sweeter sometimes. But I'm also often subject to having a stronger (spicier?) than normal scent for my love of ginger,garlic, and all that is spicy. I love blondes and redheads too-I love everybody, and don't have a set lovemap even-my partner of recent is blondish and on the fairer side-my failed loves were almost all brunette with nice, unique smells. They all have a place in my heart, but my heart sticks with my nose and my brain-in the fragrant present.
I had a brilliant idea today: a cologne that makes one smell like pesto, whose best character is brought out by eating garlic!
