So a few questions. How do you know whether or not I have an acute sense of smell? Do you know me personally? Have you ever met me? For your information, I spend less than 15% of a week with smokers. I may be dating one or work with smokers occasionally, but it is not the majority of my time.
It is not me getting used to it and yes, I know the psychology reasoning behind getting used to stimuli that you are constantly bombarded with (hence why people do not constantly feel their clothes touching them). However, the smell goes away in about five to ten minutes whereas it takes me on average thirty to forty minutes to get used to perfume of a person sitting within in five feet of me regardless of whether or not I like it due to me actually being very sensitive to smells.
