Did you know that crazy has a smell?

It's true crazy people especially those that are on heavy medications have a scent to them. Also people who are not on medication have a scent to them too. It is not all that unpleasant really. Like plums that are moldering in a dark corner or behind the fridge for a couple weeks. The medicated ones smell faintly of that smell along with chemicals. You have to get in close to smell it, but once you familiarize yourself with the scent of someone you know is nuts you will not forget the smell again.

I haven't ever heard that and I'm not quite sure I agree, but you know...I think we all have a smell. I just think for the most part we don't really notice it. And I don't mean body odor either. I mean something that comes from us like maybe pheromone or something. Because I realize that my boyfriend has a smell, and I could only smell it if I'm real close to him, and it's in his clothes, but it's not unpleasant and it's not describable. It's just HIM. Hard to explain really.

I understand exactly what you mean. And yes we all do have a scent. New people into your sphere stand out due to the unfamiliarity of their scents. Scents plural. Your scent can change do to mood, food, chemicals into the body, it is subtle but your body scent is like an aromatic postcard of your day.

This isn't something I've ever heard before. Where did you get this information? Though close enough to smell goes directly against all my self defense training. lol

I have heard that and working in the feild that I work in it is true!!! I work with psyically and mentally handicapped individuals, and I used to work in a hospital doing some volunteer work... And it is amazing what you can smell... The cancer ward had it's own smell, as well as elderly people and flu patients... I swear it is the wierdest thing...
