Thanks, cacio! My wife does have a great nose, which is even more directly connected to her mouth than mine is. She just blurts out exactly what she thinks. My favorite recent comment was her reaction to A*Men Pure Shot:"UGH! Terrible! No way! Cheap guy smell!"
I use her nose all the time, and I've discovered all sorts of characteristics - often hidden in plain olfactory sight - that I wouldn't have realized otherwise.
