Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, May 26, 2020
I ordered this manga, intrigued by the premise - a girl with a "unique" body odor and heavy-perspiration problem, of which she's always been ashamed, gets discovered by a perfuming genius who's a wee bit overbearing... It's rated "Older Teen", ages 16+, apparently for the fairly explicit sex scenes - yes, the couple do in fact fall in bed fairly early in the story! Luckily it seems to be a mutually satisfying relationship, though our timid and sweaty heroine - while able to use her words when she really needs to - spends a lot of time and energy fretting about the situation. And while the guy seems to be a decent sort, if a bit too much of an aroma fetishist, his tendency to glomp her for yet another odor-fix seems as if it could be tiring over the long haul!

There are some workplace scenes - including a very sit-com-style "almost got caught making out in the storeroom" - and some science-of-scent bits that I would have liked more of, but the focus seems to be on our new couple and how they'll balance practicality and desire.

"The way you smell when you're happy... that's my favorite scent!"
