    You left out tincture of mandrake root, ben. That's got to be in there somewhere.

    On a more positive note: I can say that I have very fond memories of the scent (and taste) of a few women that I have known and loved. If that could be bottled I would gladly buy some!

    Fredrick, I couldn't help but laugh at your avatar image in the context of this thread...Brian sniffing ass in the park.

    If this kind of scent floats your boat, by all means...have at it.

    I for one try to be remotely politically correct with the scents I wear out in public. While nothing pleases everyone this one sounds sure to displease most.

    I would greatly hope they went for the good smelling secretions and left out essense d' tuna.

    There are "straight" men out there who don't like pussy? I thought that was a prerequisite of being straight?

    That is just sad... I feel sorry for the women that you sleep with, dudes.

    Incorrect. I said I don't like the smell. You don't have to like the taste of cum to enjoy sex and please your partner. Besides, you can be straight and choose not to have sex because you don't like pussy. As always, sol mi dos centavos juay.

    well as a matter of fact, Brian is enjoying a martini in my avatar. I know it's hard to see but we are limited to the tiny avatars. If dogs sniff ass in the park, why are you attributing their scent experiences to me? Do I know you?

    so you probably don't know me. Here's the big question. Have you ever heard of Henri Bendel's?

    to the rest of your post I wear whatever I feel like wearing and I'm not interested in what you wear.

    DUDE! Did you just call me "guey"? That's Espanol for "cuckold", bambino.

    And I can't fault you... you're still in college and figuring stuff out, yes? Maybe as you get older your tastes will mature? Shit, your mileage may vary. Imaginary people on the internet probably aren't going to convince you that pussy smells/tastes great.

    Vomit
    feces
    urine
    sweat
    sebum
    menses
    flatulence
    semen
    snot
    halitosis
    plaque
    infections (yeast, fungus, bacterial)



    So there are a dozen things about people that I find distasteful-smell, taste, or both-and none of them have any bearing on my love or connection to my partner or friends. I don't relish my partner's every bodily function, nor do I expect that from her. I maintain myself and present myself to others in a way that I would like to see reciprocated. When (as is often the case) that does not happen, it has no effect on my relationship with the other person. It's simply a nicety- perhaps a frivolous thing, certainly, but those form (in aggregate) the fundament of societies.

    I'm neither spiritual nor humanist, and the idea that a particular orifice must be treated differently simply because it serves as a birth canal is incongruent with my worldview. I regard that kind of rhetoric as superstition or perhaps a form of sympathetic magic.

    And here is how this relates to fragrance (this is Basenotes, after all): We all have widely varying tastes in perfume- that should be an accepted fact. Perfumes smell. Orifices smell. It stands to reason that people's taste in orifice-smell would vary widely as well. For goodness' sake--some people just smell bad! I've experienced body odors that ranged from pleasant to gag-inducing. I don't like stinky armpits, and I don't like stinky genitals. It is unpleasant to me. And, I assume, many here on basenotes share this general perspective and have been trying to explain it to you. It is an issue that is separate from any kind of misogyny or misandry: we're talking about smell here, not people's individual worth.

    Damn, I did not mean to hit a nerve! I don't understand why someone would be grossed out by a loving partner's clean, hygenic body... but I guess that's just me. You're right, smell and personal preferences are intensely personal.

    No, no, I did not mean to come off sounding angry. I am not angry or anything.

    A clean, hygenic body, though- that's a subject for debate. A woman fresh from the shower is probably the best thing you could offer me, intimacy-wise. At that point, it seems like people start on the same page. Clean, yes- there is nothing objectionable to a woman's scent when it is her own scent. Add about 12 hours, though, and you are not smelling woman anymore- you are smelling whatever is growing on her. The same goes for men. 12 hours of sitting on a chair will leave anyone with some really grotesque funk. Couple this with (at least in my experience) women's habit of showering in the morning and only in the morning, and night-time trysts get to be rather fragrant. Thus my strong feelings. I apologize if I came off sounding too self-righteous, but I have heard far too many times (and not from you or anyone on basenotes) that I should love a woman's scent just because, you know, the party line says we should and all that.

    And this really shouldn't be centered on women- it just happens to be where my experience lies. I assume that I speak for most women when I say that men stink if they don't shower, too. I know I do.

    I went out with a girl for several years (she lived with me). Absolutely the best relationship I've had so far. She was fantastic. The only nitpicky thing that was wrong was that she didn't find BO to be objectionable, and therefor her BO was not a bad thing to her, either. She could have cared less if I went 4 days without bathing (she never had a chance to experience that), but then of course she was OK about doing the same thing.

    The next GF showered in the morning only, and she had some crotch funk by the evening.

    The current SO is also a morning-shower person. See above.


    The only reason that I'm bringing these facts to light is to illustrate where I'm coming from. I can only dream of a woman who smells as good or better than me at 8 p.m.

    Is there a tactful way to tell someone that they need to bathe more often? Experience has shown me that there is not.

    Yeah, I called you guey. I've never seen it written, only spoken (a lot), so I didn't know how to spell it. I know it's lower class, and I intend to keep using it. Yall are my fools, like it or not . Thanks for the spelling though. Yeah, I'm a freshman in college actually. I am still definitely figuring things out. Lots of things, but if I choose not to like a certain smell of my partner, I'm sure she'll understand. I don't ask her to like the smell of ball sweat... should I? No... I won't, I can see me ending up on the street with just my boxers on... that would be funny though...

    All perfectly good points. The spectrum here is quite wide and I too have experienced the end that you are talking about. Perhaps we should, as someone I knew used to say, "draw a discrete veil" over this matter.

    That's the nice thing about basenotes women -- we all shower in the late afternoon to erase the SoTD so we can have a fresh SoTE. But I don't shave my legs at all while Micah's out of town.....

    Wow mang sorry to throw you on defense. I think the point of my post was lost ENTIRELY. I wasn't trying to say you sniff ass, nor trying to even say that your avatar was "Brian sniffing ass" but it reminded me of the scene where he does. I'm a huge Family Guy fan- maybe I was expecting somone to read to far into my train of thought.


    No, I have not heard of Henri Bendels- martinis generally make me gag.

    Interesting thread...I've always showered/bathed right before going to bed, even if I've just returned home from a night out at 3:00a.m -and showered in the morning to "wake-up". Just think, you're out and about, working, running errands, sweating, using the bathroom all day, sweaty feet, picking up germs here and there....I just absolutely CANNOT go to bed "dirty" -wouldn't feel comfortable.

    I just realized I could be a published author by now. Too bad I didn't write any of that with ink and paper...or maybe it's not that bad .

    And Shycat, you made me giggle with your comment about the good thing about basenotes women!!! So true, so true.

    It really surprises me, that there aren't more "vagina supporters" on this board. We're all driven by our sense of smell. We will eagerly try out the latest & greatest frag being touted on the board. If we don't get what the frag is about at first, we try it again & again, and try to understand what exactly the scent is all about. Why the aversion, then, to the most intimate scent of a woman? The smell of a fresh (and even semi-fresh) vagina is one of the most beautiful smells in the world, if you understand it.

    A healthy woman's vagina NEVER smells like "rotten fish" ever, even after a long day (sweaty maybe, but not rotten fish) -She mostly has a bacterial infection and doesn't know it, but is too embarassed to speak to her doctor about it.....thinking that it's just her-which is probaly all too common and unfortunate.

    I am going to agree with greyhueofdoubt on this subject. As long as we are clean, the smell of the human body can be amazing...everyone's 'shelf life' is different, and as adults we should know our own 'shelf life'. Once it has expired, we should either bathe or steer others away from an encounter with 'expired shelf life'.
