Do I imagine this, or do redheads kind of smell ‘rusty’?

You may not be imagining this. I have noticed this as well. I can’t describe the smell and it’s in no way offensive (at least not to me), but it is definitely ‘there’. Many members of any ethnic group, in this case those with Celtic blood, have distinct bodily smells. I read somewhere once that the Vikings smelled ‘buttery’ to those other nationalities with which they came into contact. It can’t be diet because there aren’t certain types of food that only redheads eat! This is a fascinating area of study but it doesn’t get far in this culture due to ‘political correctness’ about racial traits.

Well Nina, I think that you have stumble upon one of the mysteries of life. Natural odors I have discovered are very intertwined with the color of ones hair. Rusty redheads, scorched brunettes and green apple blondes are a few examples. So don’t worry about it being your imagination…some of us have spent years studying it.

I think you’re imagining this. Are you referring to male or female redheads? As a female redhead, I must say I have never heard that. I would like to know if you personally have had experience with this.

Redheads don’t smell any different than brunettes or blondes do. Maybe it’s the red-haired girls you’re with. I don’t believe hair color has anything to do with odor.

I don’t believe there is a difference between natural redheads and any one else. There is a popular hair dye called henna that has a strong ‘earthy’ aroma but produces beautiful shades of red in the hair. People use it because it is completely non-toxic in it purest forms and has a healthy effect on the hair and skin. But the ‘earthiness’ does linger….
