Olfactophilia: your thoughts on this fetish?

I have olfactophilia. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's sexual arousal from smells, especially bodily odors. However, I think I have an extreme case of it. My girlfriend doesn't wear perfume, which is something I love; a woman's natural smell. I'm mildly allergic to most perfumes... Show More

  • I do not have such a fetish. Your olfactory nerves pass through your limbic system of your brain ( link ) which is termed your "emotional brain" because it invokes emotion...so I can see how some people can get turned on by certain smells (which I guess is how pheromones work anyways)

    • Correction: evokes ....not invokes
