I am a layperson and not a chemist. But something baffles me. How is the human, original, personal scent emitted from the skin? Through the pores?
Does an applied perfume just SIT on top of the skin, like a layer? Or is it ingested, absorbed by the skin???
When scented body lotion is applied, does it not SINK into the skin, thus it is absorbed?
When a perfume oil (oud products) is applied, is it not absorbed, ingested??
When the alcohol based perfume which contains some oil nevertheless, is applied, does not the alcohol evaporate and the small remnants of oil are absorbed into the skin?
My argument is that if the perfume (as stated above) is ingested, absorbed, blended, mixed ... whatever ... with the skin, then there has to be a "marriage" simply put, and that could be different from person to person.
When so many perfume professional talk about skin chemistry, there must be something to the theory that perfume just ever so slightly change on the skin.
We are possibly not using the same terms of expressing the blending of the perfume with the skin.
Why are you so insistant about that there is nothing, nothing whatsoever??
