When you give or receive a hug, do you smell the other person?

I know it may seem like an odd question, especially if you do not do this. I know that some if not alot of people do do this though. I know that I do, I can actually recognize people that I am close to by their smell.

  • I do....Its a strange habit and sometimes regret I have this habit, but generally the only ppl I hug are family or really really close friends and they always smell the same.

  • Yes, but not on purpose. I have a really sensitive sense smell, so I smell them, but don't purposely sniff them :p

  • Actually i do the opposite. I hold my breath in fear that they are smelly. I do the same when I pass a stranger closely. I am very weird, I guess . LOL

  • Why would you ever be hugging someone that you do not want to hug Armywife510? I do not understand that statement.

  • I was thinking about this the other day when I hugged a girl friend that I hadn't seen in a long time and she was wearing a new leather coat and after I still could smell the leather. It just lingers. ! I HATE that smell!!
