I am a solar Aquarius with Sagittarius Rising, so I love running social and psychological experiments, often using myself as a guinea pig. When I found out a few years ago that our sense of smell is tied to our emotional centers in our brain, my Libra moon was highly intrigued. As someone so easily influenced by smell, surely I would have strong emotional response to familiar scents? I just needed a testing method… Fast forward a few months to an ugly break up with a fellow Aquarius I dated twice. When I moved out, I took every. single. thing.… Read more »

Ah, the underlying attraction of the pheromone. The potion sounds divine… and my horoscopes do say NOW is the time for a mad once in an epoch attraction, I NEED THIS , Mystic.. NEED. Take pity on a single and celibate Libran who needs a little kick start of love.

I am Very scent oriented– I worked at a sex store for some time, we sold pheromone perfumes, lotions, etc–very popular with the dancers–and I can imagine why, they DO work–I would sometimes spritz them on and come home and…well, let’s say the influence was PERCEPTIBLE. I would often tell customers that they probably just enhance our own natural pheromones–really, it was not totally true though, I honestly don’t know–I have wondered though, if it is actually a terrible thing to do, influencing a sense so basic, and here is why: based on my understanding, our scent messages are literally… Read more »

I had leaned against a caged partition, and had smelt again the kitchen of a wealthy childhood friend. Her family’s wealth was legendary; her father had connections to the President. Her home was custom built, with at least 7 bedrooms (and in each bedroom a bathroom) for each of the family’s children. The stuff of childhood dreams: a hallway closet full of toys. I looked around for the source of this reviving scent and realized my back was against a dumpster off-site. “‘…maybe a cat’s litter box is nearby.'” It’s in alleyways and trash off-sites that you pick up rich,… Read more »

My daughter has no sense of smell, while mine is super-strong. So I have a sniff, check out the pheromones and judge freely. It doesn’t mean she picks the ones I think smell good, but she listens when I think they stink.
Me, on the other hand – I totally trust my sensory perceptions. Even pheromones left on a pillow can turn me off…or on…:)

Not much for the blog-o-sphere lately but these comments are all great and a few of them are pretty exceptional so I felt the urge to jump in and comment myself. It’ll be a tough to pick Mystic. I can smell ‘something in the air’. It’s probably more vibrational and not able to be described in scent terms but I definitely perceive it as a scent or I tend to sniff at something barely tangible and then follow my nose from there. I also tend to get random smells wafting in briefly as if from another dimension, perfumed and distinct… Read more »

From these scent posts I realise I am kind of scent illiterate, an odiferous luddite.

I smell like illness. Its my biggest wish in this life to cure this. Im guessing its my severe cheonic IBS that is causing it but im not sure.

I love love perfumes, nice scents and love that clean smell on others. I envy it. Which virgo with a stellium and libra in 1st house wouldn’t? no matter how much i change my diet, it comes through when i speak or when im around.

Ive always wondered what the human breath, odour and other intangible things are related to in chakra or astrology. In medical astrology?

Pegasus

A.T.Mann’s Astrology and the Art of Healing may have some answers for you.
Yes the breath gives much information.
As i used to teach conscious breathing and would be behind the person’s head, have smelt ‘unwellness’ in many people and have found Basil to be an excellent cover, under armpits.Just checked the astro-healing book and Breath is aligned to colon and mentions Lactobacillis Acidophilus which of course you know about.

Year 11 school camp. Me. Him. He was everything all the other boys weren’t – mature, self-contained, able to speak to girls, possessing an air of mystery. I’d spent months worshipping Him from afar, and finally – after a chat with my favourite art teacher – decided to make a move. I asked him to meet me on the end of the balcony one night about an hour before we were all due to be herded off to bed. He agreed. I was so nervous I thought I was going to throw up, but as promised, He turned up. We… Read more »

I’ve always had an insane sense of smell. I know I inherited it from my mother- who also has a strong sense of smell too. I can smell all sorts of things. I can tell when food is going bad when the fridge is closed. I can tell how old meat is when it’s cooked at the restaurant. I can smell how long it’s been since someone had sex, and I can smell when a woman is on her period- or ovulating. In some cases I can smell when someone is on medication or has a particular illness.

Great story. I often think that children pick up on people’s scents much better than adults and have lost count of the number of times my little daughter has been spot-on about someone after meeting them for the first time. Unable to intellectualise at the age she was when she used to do this regulalry, I think she was responding to something else. I love the remark about concrete! It’s so true. I can’t live in Sydney for example, it drives me nuts, but when I used to visit it, it smelt to me of concrete, gas and rotting frangipane… Read more »

Once went to a chi kung style healer when I was pregnant to help me with my second pregnancy. I had a bit of trauma from the first birth experience. She had (or suffered!) clairolfaction where you smell energy, instead of/or along with: clairvision, clairaudience and clairsentience. She said she could tell when an unwelcome energy was in the room as it smelled like shit. Not nice grassy cow poo either. As removing such energies was her job, she had to deal with this regularly. Since then I have had clients with clairolfaction and one even came over first to… Read more »

My nose led me to two lovers who were godly and divine. The first one – I smelt him before I saw him – and when I paired the visual to the smell I had this brain frisson that stopped time. Literally stood still, gobsmacked and watched him move in to view in slow motion. He was a Libran and worked nicely with my Libran moon. The second one was gorgeous and I could. not. get. enough. of him.

When I was in the fifth grade, my friend’s dog was sprayed by a skunk before school. She had tried to help clean the dog up, but in the process, REEKED of skunk herself.

OK so my smell story happened this February. last year on Valentine’s Day (at a love poetry event where I was speaking) I met my current Piscean lover. We live in different cities and exchanged love letters for a year after meeting (sometimes I would dab mine with essential oil). On Vday this year I sent him a pretty letter press card from a local shop . . . and was a bit miffed when nothing arrived from him that week, though we had finally planned a tryst in a Caribbean city for March.

I am Capricorn Sun and I had this teacher I had the biggest crush on. I think he was Taurus? I don’t remember. I spent so much time around him that I recognized his smell and it was intoxicating to me -in a good way. I don’t think he was the type to wear cologne or anything to smell non-threateningly clean but he didn’t smell like BO so I think it must have been pheromones. I could smell him from far away. I was young and mesmerized. I haven’t had that kind of connection with a man’s smell ever again.… Read more »

I’ve just recently hit menopause, and guess what, my smell is different! I’m having to get to know myself all over again. I can’t really describe it, and I couldn’t even tell you if I smell better or worse, but I don’t smell like I used to. I’m considering whether this is part of the ‘disappearing’ that many women going through menopause experience. Surely there’s more to our smell than hormones? Or maybe not…

A wine writer with a sensational ‘nose’ told me that menopausal women do smell different. Of course once brought into awareness it is noticed.
Another man once told me my Gardenia ess oil smelt like his grandmother’s drawers (hope he didn’t mean knickers!).
Tahitian men squish Basil leaves and rub them over their bodies, the women climb the Ylang Ylang tree and put bunches on their ears, along with the monoi they use all the time for everything, they all smell like the paradise they are in.

sphinxMM Member

Not to be morbid, but apparently the smell of the very aged is actually the smell of the cells slowly dying. I wonder what perfume the super senior person should wear?
Personally I love the idea fresh Ylang Ylang leaves for any age. I am looking up Monoi! I think I need to invest in some plants rather than perfume now.

When married and living in old Queenslander in the middle of big acreage of heavy FNQ rainforest I used to smell the spirit of a woman frequenting the place. I would walk down the front path and then veer off to the right. There she was. It was a 70’s musk perfume. One step over and it was gone. One step back and she was there. Not subtle. Strong.

When we moved into our college dorms in the fall, care packages provided by the university were left in the rooms: Kotex, lotion, and toothpaste for the girls, aftershave, toothpaste and soap for the boys. The after shave was Mennen, a cheap drugstore brand. After wearing Mennen for about 8 hours my boyfriend smelled like a Snickerdoodle. For you non-Americans a Snickerdoodle is a sugar cookie with cinnamon and sugar on top. I both loved and was amused by the scent. To this day I can’t eat A Snickerdoodle without a trip down a good memory-lane.

There’s a man’s cologne in the States called Old Spice that was popular with college boys wanting to get laid in the 80s. But for me it was like hazard lights who not to hook up with. Gag! Fast forward a couple decades β€” a friend’s husband asked me to meet him for a drink, ostensibly wanting some advice about antiques. So I met him: but he REEKED of Old Spice, must’ve dumped a whole bottle down his back, and was wearing super pointy cockraock kicker cowboy boots, too.

After hearing about ‘bongs’ on return to Oz after eons away o/s, thought it was a shockingly racist slur not something one smoked. A prisoner’s trick is to use an empty toilet roll with small hole made & silver foil and needle from holes. Disposable, no evidence in the game of Heads & Feds.

I can’t say as I am so impressed with these, or with Bach although I do love Rescue Remedy. They fall into the homeopathy sector for me – and I am pretty sceptical about homeopathy.

My ex-husband’s scent actually changed one year. It changed and it never changed back. Right at the time someone gifted him a popular men’s eau de cologne and the combination had me sobbing. I literally left the house, i couldn’t breathe. He bathed, changed the linen, his clothes and left windows open. But really i should have known. I should never have come back…i left him a few years later. His scent never changed back, and he had a neurological transformation, too. I’ll bet that was what you could smell on him. I do think medical conditions have a scent.

one condition makes the person smell like maple syrup, another is a really musty smell. I crossed paths with a man once, maybe late 50s, friend of a friend, and his smell was practically choking me. i thought at first that he was just a bit of a grot and hadn’t bathed for a few days, then i thought no, this man is actually ill. he looked a bit dehydrated and ashen too.

YES to Robert Tisserand, he was totally ethical about selling essential oils, one had to have a massage diploma before buying from his company. Him and Margurite Maury rebirthed the Egyptian ancient art. I had to do a year’s theory before being allowed to use them on peoples, it had very strict rules back then and quality control.

It sounds counterintuitive, but I had the best luck jump starting going deodorant free in the summer months as I was wearing more sleeveless/loose shirts, clothing etc. It seems that the armpit coming into direct contact with fabric is what creates the bad BO smell, for me anyway. Good luck!

Was it Civet?

SeabirdMM Member
Seabird

It was! Well-guessed!! I can’t use civet. There is an ethical way of collecting it, which involves going round and scraping the scat off tree-trunks after the animal has deposited it to mark its territory. I’m willing to bet nobody collects it like this. The way it is really collected is that the animal is given a series of electric shocks which make it exude the stuff from its anal glands because it is distressed. And then it is put back into its wire cage to await the next time. Horrible. Beautiful ingredient (well, actually it is disgusting straight-up but… Read more »

What a magical story! Animal musk, if that’s what the secret ingredient was, is a cruel ingredient, but how interesting that it had such a strong effect. I bet you have 1,001 similarly exotic tales.

I have a few, maybe not quite that many, but yes….I am feeling very antsy lately, it’s been months since I went anywhere at all because of young baby. A project may be coming my way which would see me back in the Middle East….oh fingers crossed and crossed.

Although I do sometimes worry that my kids will detest me a la something from that film Hideous Kinky. I guess there’s always therapy.

I love your story, Seabird. Also “an essential oil tragic” here. What i love about the perfume world are the eccentric, passionate people involved, such as the crazy Sufi perfumer (straight out of “Jitterbug Perfume”) or secret molecules like E Molecule 01. I am not an advocate of using animal based scents for the obvious ethical reasons, but have always wondered why they add a dimension to perfume that nothing else can match. So I’d like to share here what the crazy Sufi perfumer you mention has to say about this: **I learned in the East that perfume means spirituality.… Read more »

Ok, here’s my pheromone story: One day I went out drinking (I was in a bit of a dead end zombie relationship at the time) and got chatting to a lovely man. He said he was only into transwomen (I am not a transwoman). It was great to tell my troubles to my new-found friend. Then he asked if he could lick my armpit. Yes. Lick. My. Armpit. I wasn’t even wearing a sleevless top! By that point I’d had so much red w(h)ine it seemed like a perfectly natural thing to do, so I rolled up my sleeve and… Read more »

I often catch myself holding my breath when people walk close by me in public. Especially if I’m eating. Libra Moon-Pluto. If I catch a whiff of something foul it really sours my vibe, dig?

Horses, on the other hand: omg I never met a horse that didn’t smell like heaven.

agree with you on both points – I have Libra moon/Uranus/Lilith conj and my sense of smell is acute (as in can smell the moods on people from the minute they walk in the room)-often find being out and about overwhelming simply from the olfactory overload, but horses? Divine! Mixture of warmth, grass and fresh earthiness (if there is such a thing lol) (Sagg sun)

Haha. Wow. Timely post MM as I have recently been contemplating/experiencing such things as of late. There is a male here in my small little town with whom I have had 2 encounters. The first was him showing unmistakable interest and inviting me to study with him. I nervously, yet graciously accepted. I was fairly new in town at the time and we were both struggling with precalculus. So why not? During the study sesh, we were initially seated across from one another…but at one point he got up and seated himself next to me in the booth. Now mind… Read more »

i was reading recently ish that we detect immune system compatibility via pheromones (or biomes I guess) – to ensure max chances for offspring with strong immune systems, the partner’s immune system needs to be the right kind of different from our own.

also apparently the Pill can throw our sense out a bit. reading (again) that we tend to go for a different kind of mate when off the pill vs on. not sure about that one

There is quite high percentage of women who weren’t attracted to their partners anymore after they stopped taking pill… Basically genetically engineering

Yes – weird but interesting – how women are likely to chose the wrong partner while on the Pill. I remember reading this in my multi Cap friend’s bible – Scientific American. I found the article:

My last lover was a super finicky Virgo with a cleanliness obsession – except that he never wore deodorant (weird!) and he REEKED. (Is this even possible? I’ve never met a stinky Virgo before.) Initially I was (literally) rocked back on my heels by the odour, but by the end of the first date I had fallen under it’s spell, and by the time we made it to bed 3 months later I was burying my nose in his arm pits at every opportunity…. he must have had some hella pheromones going on there because I LOATHE B.O. and arm… Read more »

My current boyfriend’s body oder literally makes me drunk whenever I smell him. It’s an an instant turn on. Thankfully he is super hippie and doesn’t use deodorant.
We’ve been friends for years and reconnected recently. From the first moment I smelled him I couldn’t keep my hands off of him. We’ve been having a wonderful passionate love affair ever since.

I used to have the hottest sex with a cute (and deceptive) musician. We fit so well together, but when I’d bury my nose in their neck, crotch or under their arms, there was always a slight scent of … wee? They were a daily showerer and almost exclusively used wet-wipes on their booty, so I don’t think it was actual pee, but the urea in their sweat. Anyways the sex was so good I ignored that slightly off-putting ammonia smell. Big mistake. Dude liked to bareback groupies on tour. πŸ˜›

Yes, pit licking and kissing. That musk. Smell stories: I clearly remember a date with a young man who smelled exactly like a grandmother to me…I couldn’t go out with him again. Before that, I remember briefly dating a man whose smell I couldn’t stand, before I understood that I could trust smell to tell me if this was a good fit or not…and an uncanny experience last year when I was working as a massage therapist: a client who was new to me. He smelled EXACTLY like a man who I had dated and lived with for almost four… Read more »

A story comes to mind. About 20 years ago I was out in Darlinghurst, Sydney. For those that don’t know it , it’s an inner city mixture of hipsters, the LGBT community mixed with late night drinking holes and drug dens. I was meeting a friend for dinner and was waiting outside the restaurant when I saw Rosie. A beautiful larger indigenous woman who positively glowed with life and let’s say experience in the ways of Darlinghurst. Our eyes locked and she gave me the biggest smile and waved me over. Rosie was down on her luck and I just… Read more »

A few years back I worked as an exotic dancer at one of the main clubs in my town. I was confident and excited but a bit naive. One of my first nights there struck friendly conversation with a gentleman who sat me close to him. He was quite handsome from Miami wearing the obligatory Affliction shirt, a bodybuilder and just 21. Paying me, he told me not to dance but to sit closer to him. “I really just wanted to smell your armpit for a while.” I was immediately self-conscious but I was not surprised. Always hyperaware of my… Read more »

I always seem to attract guys though, that love me unshowered and ripe. “The pheromones.” He said. “That’s where the real attraction is. Ideally, I would enjoy you here at the end of a 5 hour shift.” He breathed me for a bit before calling it an evening. And I will admit that I spent the rest of the evening resisting the urge to freshen and deodorize.

I’ve worked as a dancer for many years, never wear deodorant, only natural perfumes and oils. I weirdly never seem to get bad customers. They often ask about the perfume I’m wearing. It’s usually a combo of lavender, vanilla and coconut oil.
There is also a dancer myth about pheromones being more potent when you have your period, which I think is probably false.

Annica
Annica

Ha! Depends on what kind of pheromone you are putting out. There have been studies out on dancers pulling power during different parts of their cycle. Ovulation gets the most tips!

MsMina
MsMina

Yes I’ve read that one and found it to be correct! It might be pheromones but probably more to do with the elevated and er, friskier moods. Ovulation supposedly legit enhances your appearance too (lips redder, breasts fuller etc).

I love your story! It’s amazing how open and honest customers can be, and how much they can challenge our preconceptions of male desire.

MinaMagdalena, Thanks! (My dancer name was Mina a la mate of Drac?) the men who were comfortable and expressed appreciation beyond a T n A show were always the most interesting. I have heard the period myth and personally found it to be sometimes true!
I knew a girl there also who wore only rose oil and while I pften found that scent overpowering and too rich, her body chemistry worked it into a divine perfume on it’s own.

MsMina
MsMina

Yes Mina is my dancing name. I was rereading Dracula when I first started, age 19. I’m glad it stuck, kind of an incantation against the more energy vampy types you can come across. Isn’t it cool how oils and perfumes can smell entirely different depending on the person. One weird thing about dancing (in Brisbane where touching is allowed) is coming home smelling like a heap of different mens’ Cologne. It’s like being surrounded by a cloud of male desire.

I’ve had the same exact experience but with a guy’s voice. It was crazy attractive to me to the point that I wanted to hear him talk more than I needed anything, um, physical. I’ve only recently noticed that another guy I’m currently uh “working on” has a similar voice. He hosts a radio show.

voice tone is A Thing for me. there’s a certain kind of timbre that makes me a bit almost light-headed. all my “important” lovers, BFs and crushes have had it. current Aries not-so-sure-atm has a freaking amazing voice. it’s, like, soothing and melodic and masculine at the same time. gah
anyway this is about perfume innit

Powerful stuff. I once followed a guy in a suit halfway up Collins Street because he smelled so delicious – I had to ask him what he was wearing because DAMN …

I had almost caught up to him when some lady jumped in front of me and asked if I had the time. I didn’t want to be rude so I fumbled for my phone and told her, but when I resumed the chase, I unfortunately had lost the scent. πŸ™

I suspect testosterone must smell like something but I don’t know what. I make a large amount of it despite my Venusian appearance. A friend of mine has several cats and she has 2 cats that she refers to as the “gay ones”. They are 2 neutered male cats that only like to hang out with each other and who only sit in the laps of human men. Well guess which cats make a beeline for my lap the first day I come over? Lol! I didn’t know at the time, but people were freaked out over that incident.

marsbar

And humans tell me all the time that I smell confusing, like a girl in some ways particularly as my cycle gets near the end, but otherwise masculine, I wear male colognes better than i wear female ones which tend to reek on me. Back when i wore synthetic scents i would tend to prefer softer male scents like Bvlgari Black. I blame Uranus conjunct my Libran Sun.

Nope. Nothing in my Gemini house except Saturn in the 7th. 3rd house is empty. Mercury in the 12th hanging out by its lonesome.

I wish I looked more androgynous, but alas I have the blessing of Venus on this body so it is really a mind-fuq. If I wear most women’s perfumes, it just ends up smelling like cat urine within 2 hrs. I don’t know why. I have no cats.

Im Uranus in Libra too and i have to choose a scent very carefully, wait over time to see what happens.

Of course there’s a lot of instant chemical morphing. I have wowed out perfumery assistants who insist that certain perfumes are beautiful…it takes just less than a minute. Lipstick colour change is natural, i know, but some of them do very odd tonal morphs once i heat them up. Like, a bit alien.

Not sure about testosterone level but i do smell a bit sort of animal.
