Re: shopping/scent

I think there are, indeed, differences in odor perception between the sexes. Either that or all the scientific work on pheromones has been a fraud. But there are also wide variations among each of the sexes, as we all know, with regard to almost everything that is considered a sex-related characteristic--not simply reaction to or perception of odor. And many of these reactions can appear to be similar in both sexes at any given time.

For example, my second wife and I had similar negative reactions when riding the elevator with a woman who over dosed herself with musk-based perfume. I don't know if our reactions were based on the same sexual-sensory perception or not, and I not sure it matters very much.

According to literature, male and female perceive odors differently... it is
not just your boyfriend or husband being obstinate. He does smell something
different. Same with color hues. Different color perception as well. Not as
noticeable different, though in most cases. Brains are simply wired
different from one sex to the other.
Long live the differences......
