    I'm so curious to smell an Amazon scent one day. I've never really interacted with one that closely. Congrats of getting your first wiff @Lincee ! Glad things are going so well now!

    Oooh, interesting!

    Here's another interesting tidbit - some humans, (or maybe all humans I'm not sure) are naturally able to detect compatible phermones from other humans' armpits.

    I haven't either! Thanks for making me feel silly :hug1:

    But it's true!

    I know you probably don't want to read the whole thing but I'll post it just incase anyone is interested Armpit Psychology: The Science of Body Odor Perception - Scientific American Blog Network

    Here is one quote from the article summarizing what I was referring to

    As far as natural body odors go, scientists have found repeatedly that the less a person smells like you, the more attractive—or rather, the less repulsive—you find their armpit aromas. To evolutionary psychologist Glenn Weisfeld from Wayne State University, the reason we prefer dissimilarly scented others is obvious: since olfaction plays a key role in identifying who is genetically related to us and who isn’t (in some studies, participants with especially strong odor detection abilities can even successfully discriminate between the body odors of identical twins raised apart and those of fraternal twins raised together), being specially repelled by the malodorous fumes of our biological kin functions to promote incest avoidance.
