The smell of a jumper is what a hug smells like.

In the past five years my sense of smell has become very acute.

I am very sensitive to the smells of people.

This became apparent particular once I started dating people.

Once I smelt someone who had stepped on some ants. It had a fresh minty scent.

In some ways it’s quite undemocratic, it makes me feel quite judgemental. Then I feel judgemental about being judgemental.


fresh mint, squashed ants, wool jumpers, adrenal gland.
