Saved this woman’s life.

And, no, farts don’t count. I know some of you were thinking that….. you know who you are …. 🙂

A woman with dementia who went missing in Florida was found by a police dog in a matter of minutes, having bottled her scent in advance.

Citrus County Sheriff’s Office said the anonymous woman had used a specialist scent preservation kit.

It can hold a person’s scent for up to seven years.

In a Facebook post police said she stored the scent two-and-a-half years ago, and a picture of the jar showed it was dated January 2015.

Manufacturers say they work better and more quickly than articles of clothing, because they are not contaminated by other people’s smells or smells from the environment.

Dogs have a stronger sense of smell than humans and working police dogs are trained to sniff out drugs, people and in some cases corpses.

Some police forces around the world, including in China and Germany, have held scent samples from criminal suspects and crime scenes to help in their investigations.

But there are concerns over a high failure rate; in 2006 it was found that only a quarter of people indicated by dogs in New South Wales, Australia, turned out to be carrying drugs when they were searched.

In this case, though, the missing person was found and the dog earned a celebratory ice cream.

    I am going to go with farts. Last night I ate a plain bean burrito and spiced it up
    with some Trinidad Scorpion Moruga sauce. This morning my stomach was a wreck
    and I was shitting Napalm!

    Pheromones. The magical body aromas created by chemicals within the body. I’ve been brought to my knees by Pheromones and brought to the point of regurgitation from others. Both sexes exude Pheromones but the receptors in the receiver’s nasal cells in combination with the hippocampus area determine positive or negative response. I’ve smelled women who’s scent has brought me to heaven and my knees and others who’s scent has repelled me to the point of fleeing. Manufactured perfumes may masque the body’s natural scent aura, but that’s only temporary. The natural musky scent is the determinant that bonds or rejects.
