What do you find most attractive in people?

Their smell.

Brain anatomy can explain why smells conjure vivid memories. In addition to being the sense most closely linked to memory, smell is also highly emotive. The perfume industry is built around this connection, with perfumers developing fragrances that seek to convey a vast array of emotions and feelings; from desire to power, vitality to relaxation. Most of the time the first thing that attracts me when I'm meeting a new person is their smell. Of course assuming that we are talking about the opposite gender here lah kan, because I don't think I can ever get attracted to a girl. But then again, I might find a girl pretty, or wonderful, or awesome to hang with, but I'm not really, you know, sexually attracted to them? HAHAHA. The point is I'm basing this analysis on the sole perspective of being attracted to the opposite gender and in my case, a dude.

So, coming back to the topic..

It's so easy to get attracted to a guy with a certain scent. It doesn't necessarily means that the scent is coming from his perfume or deodorant or a certain brand of cologne he's wearing. He might work as a barista and his shirt smells like coffee. Or he work in a lab and his hands smells like some weird chemical shit, if that fancies you. What I'm trying to say is, I get easily attracted with guys that has a sweet smelling scent. Sometimes when somebody wears the same perfume as this dude that I am attracted to and  I caught the glimpse of their scent as they passed beside me, I can close my eyes and the entire memory of me meeting this attractive guy for the first time will flashback in my head. Scents are like switches. I can remember vividly, every gestures, every detail of the encounter, just by closing my eyes while smelling the same scent.

Ah..Creepy nya aku ni...
