The scents of a woman, or a man?

The body is an ever flowing mosaic of scent. When people are first attracted to one another it is often something in their scent (pheromones) which attract us. New people of both the male and female variety may have certain scents which set you off in either a good or bad way. The sense of discomfort and unfamiliarity when in the home of new friends or aquaintances. Might that have some subconcious basis in our ability to smell and through that ability decifer sublingual information about their health, medications, etc. A person's "personal" scent is created by a mixture of body oils, persiration (and the chemicals thereing),deoderants, lotions, powders, and sprays, in addition to cologne and perfume (yours and that which clings to you from other people). Your clothes, hair, and skin are covered in a rich tapestry of scents every day. The places that you frequent more than likely have quite an influence on your "personal scent" and may say a lot of things about where you go and what you do. If only scent wasn't sublingual and subconscious so we could decipher what we are catching into some type of usable information.
