Salaam, thank you for your continued thoughts on this topic.
Two of your comments are “close to home”. I have long been able to tell a woman when she was in the middle of her cycle, often much to her surprise. As to my physical/visceral reaction, well that is an evolving phenomenon but there’s no doubt it goes right to the most basic instincts.
I have also had clear validation from my cat of several of your scents. Oddly, he found “honey” to be compelling and seemingly tasty, but he was also moved by civet and muskdeer.
Now let’s see how my human friends align with Bianca’s (the cat) tastes!
