Physiotherapy exams were nothing to laugh at, and having been glued to my desk with muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments for weeks on end probably made me slightly imbalanced. Anyway, I panicked, I didn't trust myself to get through all this. Then I remembered that our anatomy professor had mentioned he couldn’t resist a woman wearing Chanel No. 5... Perhaps he just wanted to see how desperate students can get, but I thought it was worth a try. So before the anatomy exams I stopped at a department store and gave myself a good spraying (I wasn't in a financial position to buy it then).
Did it work? You bet! I got the highest marks of all students in anatomy. To me it doesn’t matter if the professor appreciated my devotion to get through the exams or if he had an Oedipus complex...** Even though my favourite smell is something totally different; No. 5 has been a fixture in my perfume assembly ever since.
If it's not No. 5 (or even if it is) - Is there a smell on whose erotic power you swear?

** She also mentions that it's the smell for guys with an Oedipus complex, since it reminds many men of their mums and grandmas.
