Odour and Sex

I have always been fond of highly seasoned, rich dishes. As for women, I have always found the odour of my beloved ones exceeding pleasant. "What depraved tastes," some people will exclaim, "Are you not ashamed to confess such inclinations without blushing!" Dear critics, you make me laugh heartily.
Glacomo Casanova

The woman one loves always smells good.
Remy de Gourmont

Woman: My king is at table, my own perfume fills the air; my lover has the scent of myrrh, he shall lie all night on my breasts

Man: Thy breasts are as twin young roses, that thrive among the lilies. Until daybreak and the shadows flee, I will visit the mountain of myrrh, the hill of frankincense. Thou has ravished my heart, my sweetheart, my bride, how much better is thy love than mine. And the smell of thy person than all the s./pices.

"Where should one use perfume?" a young woman
asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed." I said.

A woman smells best when
she hath no perfume at all.
Robert Burton -
The Anatomy of Melancholy

A woman's cassolette is the most powerful weapon in her sexual armoury-her own natural perfume. Each individual has her own scent-an aroma which is unique to her. It is a combination of the different scents of her hair, genitals, armpits, and indeed every part of her skin. It is never offensive unless she does not wash regularly or is unwell.

Some men have a more developed olfactory sense than others, but all of them consciously or unconsciously respond to what the French have termed a woman's cassolette.

If a woman's natural perfume was indeed a weapon it would have one hundred per cent accuracy over a very long range. It is also infinitely more sophisticated than the weapons of war since it will only strike those who need to be struck-ie. sexually 'mature' heterosexual males.

Exposure to pheromones is the essence of sex.
Winnifred Cutler

The sexual memory of which I was drenched during that season in Brooklyn, whenever I forlornly unloosed the flood gates, was of uneasy darkness, sweat, reproving murmurs, bands and sinews of obdurate elastic, lacerating little hooks and snaps, whispered prohibitions, straining erections, stuck zippers and a warm miasmal odour of secretions from inflamed and obstructed glands.
William Styron - Sophie's Choice

There is nothing smells so sweet as a sweaty woman,
especially if some of the sweat on her is your own.

The male gypsy moth can 'smell' the
virgin female gypsy moth from 1.8 miles away.

Her honeyish pungent female smell
monopolised the warm bed.
John Updike - Couples

a red rose
The breasts like lilies, 'til other leaves be shared,
Her nipples like young blossomed jessamine,
Such fragrant flowers to give most odours smell,
But her sweet odour did them all excel.
Edmund Spenser
