    For myself. I'm willing/forced to compromise to a certain extend in exchange for money, sex and to not offend the general public too much.

    I suppose wearing clothing when it’s hot out is for other people.

    It's also about self image and body shame. In countries or states where ppl have better posture on average than today's US, people are more likely to go shirtless.

    I think it's generally legal to be nude outdoors as long as nobody complains but you know what people are like.

    I will give an answer. Because I've noticed that in many fragrances the sillage smells superior to the direct scent off of skin up close. The most dramatic example is Terre d'Hermes EDT. I smell it off my arm and it's flat, chemical, boring. But when I catch a backwave of air outside or in a room indoors, it smells absolutely gorgeous. Creed's Bois du Portugal is also like this. Off my skin I get the sharp tanins and bergamot, but in the air I get this powdery, spicy, masculine masterpiece of a smell. I know if someone else is caught in a breeze that blows over me the recipient of that wash of air will get one of the best smells of their life, but it's really 'me' that I want to get a crosswind sillage backwash experience. So, yes, on some very important fragrances, sillage seems to be essential to the experience.

    Never thought about it, but you're right.
