  •  I only had that experience once in my life. (2+ / 0-)

    My former partner Frank. Phermones. I could smell him a mile away.

    Sadly, I still enjoy the smell of my late husband as I have been going through some of his winter clothes with a view of donating them to charity. Many of them still smell like him.

    I'll make an admission which will be strange to many, but after he died I refused to sleep in our bed for months and only recently washed the sheets. I'll admit that I smelled them, and they smelled like him. I cried for hours.

            (which means a shorthaired undercoat) hasn't a scent at all. Soft as the finest ermine, he only smells clean. EXCEPT: I had some of Terun's stuff pulled out and he slept on it and then he smelled like him. I have to keep something, because the cat and Terun were attached at the hip. He rolled in those clothes.

            We both miss him so much.

      •  That's very true. (1+ / 0-)

        Terun smelled pleasant but it's going to be difficult for me to get his stuff donated. My mother visited me for two weeks just last month and it was only then that I finally decided I should move into my room rather than the guest room. Terun died in February. It has been a very long adjustment process for me, and I don't mind saying so.
