Is it really an element of butch style?

The lovely weather lady,

on radio canada,

Josiane, be still my heart.

said the snowstorm,

would bypass,

the metropolitan area.

She was wrong,

looks like at least,

twenty centimeters,

and,

it’s still coming down.

I don’t care,

it’s my day off,

not much on the schedule.

Still,

must be frustrating,

to have a job,

that involves,

years of study,

where you seem,

to be wrong,

most of the time:-)

I finished,

Giovanni’s Room,

I’ll wait,

a few days to review.

I’m still absorbing.

It is a short novel,

hard to discuss,

without giving too much,

away.

I’m in a light mood,

today,

so,

that means,

Elements Of Butch Style.

Since spring is coming,

I will soon,

be reinstating my,

baseball caps,

so expect something,

on that,

pretty soon.

Today,

as there is,

no Spring,

on the horizon,

I wanted to write,

about an intimate layer,

of butchdom?

of butchness?

I hear you thinking out loud, perhaps even, freaking. How much more intimate can you get than a discussion on boxers?

The most intimate layer,

there is,

worn directly on the skin,

indicative,

of,

personality,

lifestyle,

attitude.

Scent,

fragrance,

smell.

I think you all,

know by now,

that I am,

an olfactory butch,

the sweet smell,

of a woman,

is important to me.

I don’t mean,

flowery,

fruity,

I mean sweet,

clean,

feminine,

could be soap.

Hard to describe, but, I know it when I smell it

Scent is important to me,

hers,

and,

mine.

I want a woman,

to think,

I smell good,

even better if,

I can get a,

God, you smell wonderful.

This extension of my personality,

has evolved over the years.

When I was a young,

butch on the prowl,

I used to wear this,

Calvin Klein men’s cologne,

it was musky and sexy,

subtle,

but,

not too subtle,

a little bit,

masculine,

butch 1980’s style,

worn under a big loose,

sweater,

it was,

successful.

More with straight girls,

ah! butches and straight girls, dangerous, mine filled territory, I won’t go there!!

but,

I wanted to attract lesbians,

still do!!

here’s where it gets,

complicated,

how do you smell like,

a woman,

and not smell like the woman,

you seek.

I wear a unisex scent,

to me it is neither,

masculine,

nor,

feminine,

it’s both,

it’s butch:-)

A little citrus,

a little basil,

a little fern,

it’s nice.

I know some butches,

who wear nothing,

but,

shower gel,

you know Lever 2ooo,

type stuff,

I sometimes go that,

way.

Sometimes,

I do light verbena and lime,

again clean and subtle.

But, I remain convinced,

that the woman I seek,

wants her butch,

to smell like one.

Again, I’m single so my expertise is definetly in question

what do you girls think,

Am I being silly,

or does scent matter?

is it really an element of your butch’s style?

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. As long as the fragrance that she chooses to wear is not too strong, then for me it can be as changeables as the clothes she wears. (Will it be plaid, a crisp shirt and tie or denim ce soir?)

    Something overpowering like that AXE, for example, would chop off at the knees any chance an aspiring butch might have with me.

    I can’t help but seek out her scent under the fragrance when she pulls me in for a hug or asks me to dance a slow one. There’s a sweet spot between her neck and that little dip on her shoulder that gives off a subtle signal. I wish I could describe it in words but it seems only my body can interpret what that smells like.
