I recently moved in to a duplex house with two bedrooms. The house is kind of vintage and is located at the end of the street. For months, I was the only person living in the property. In several occasions I sensed a strong smell of men’s perfume or cologne. It would last 5-10 seconds and then disappear.
At first I thought that maybe there was some residual smell in the a/c ducts but it happened again and again and you could tell the smell was of freshly sprayed perfume.
After a few months I let a friend move in to share the expenses of the house. A single man moved in next door, also.
Last night, while my neighbor was sleeping (I can hear him snoring through the wall that separates his bedroom from mine) and my roommate was studying with a female friend in the dining room while I was watching TV in my room, I sensed the strong smell of perfume once again. I ignored it. A few minutes later, it happened again. I asked my roommate if he had sprayed perfume or if they had sensed it as well but the answer was no.
I haven’t had any other experience in this house but sometimes I can feel I am not alone. Whoever it is, I am sure he means no harm but he surely wants me to know he is around.
