This is not a racist post, so please...

 

I have a ridiculously good sense of smell, and it only got more intense while I was pregnant, and it seems to have stayed.

 

Before, I kinda just thought it was a persons perfume, but now that my sense of smell has gotten really good, I can smell a persons race.

 

Like for instance, to me, a black person will smell  kind of coconutty almost. And mexicans smell like spicey mangos, and white people have a sort of bready smell and Koreans, I can't place the smell, but Koreans smell different from other Asians. Like Japanese people smell like a light lemon scent to me...

 

is this weird? Am I the only one who can smell stuff like this?

Hmmmm... You may be one of a kind. Or, your smelling hair products, food spices, lotions, etc that can sometimes be specific to some ethnicities.

ive noticed this too.  Its probably from the cultural foods and the hair care or skin products they use.

"I can smell a person's race" lmao. Nice.

I'm black, but I smell like Dior. Sans the coconut. ;-)

 It could be that. That actually makes a lot of sense...I can smell when my husband has stopped at some fast food place after work before getting home to eat dinner. He can't get away with shit! lol.
