Hi there! Have you ever looked over your shoulder, only to see a pale-faced, vaguely vampiric-looking Brit sniffing all over you like an obsessive-compulsive bloodhound? Yeah? Congratulations! You might just have received the treatment.
It turns out the teenie heartthrob really, really likes the scent of people. Nope, apparently it's not the LSD that's causing this, as much as one may be tempted to think so. The English thespian had this to say about his passion for Homo Sapiens aroma to Portuguese magazine Activia (no relation to the digestion-assisting yogourt):
It doesn't necessarily have to be perfume. I like the smell of people. It is really strange and I'm sure it has to do with pheromones. We like people because subconsciously we like the way they smell. I always find this very interesting to observe.
Adding to this statement, his ex-flame revealed this really appetizing tidbit to Vogue last year, a little before their relationship struck the iceberg:
He loves to lick under my armpits.
Hmmmmm, armpits. Nothing beats a whiff of unshowered armpit fluid swirled in a glass for 10-12 seconds (you know,for maximum natural aroma release). Seriously, they should start doing axilla-sweat-tasting contests, I'm sure Rob has as good a chance at winning one of those as he has of bringing home yet another Teen Choice Award.
Anyway, the lesson, kids, is don't trust a stranger who's inhaling your delicious corporal odor. He might be getting turned on by your unadulterated fragrance. And he might just happen to be Robert Pattinson. Shudder.
