What is the deal with female perfume anyway? It has a range of about 5 meters, when you pass a girl on the street you can count your steps until you don't smell it anymore. Let's have a look at the odor dynamics here, it's like have you ever seen a big ship making waves on a quiet body on water? Notice how the waves propagate, at the center there is the ship, then on the sides the waves follow slightly behind it, marked by skew lines to the ship's perpendicular. So if you're on a boat that passes the ship close by, you'll get caught in the waves. And the further out you are, the lesser the waves. The further behind the ship, the lesser the waves also. The question is though, why is there so much of it? Do you bathe in it before leaving the house?

Of course, I do prefer the female perfume to the male perfume. This one doesn't appear often, but when it does you wish you weren't quite so close to the point of emission. I recall a week ago I was on the way home from the supermarket and I see these two truck drivers talking on the corner. I took about four meters of space passing them but I still feel a rather unforgiving scent I could do without. Also called B.O.

    Male perfume... I like it when a man wears 'Axe Pulse'

    As for women's perfume... best left untouched. I am *so* clueless :D
