period smells like flowers???

Yesterday, I asked my boyfriend if he could smell my period, because sometimes I feel like it's rather apparent (the familiar tinny, metalic smell) and he said that he couldn't, but that he could smell my pads, and that they smell nonscented pads, ladies. 😂 This boy apparently thinks my periods smell nice, like what. I was so surprised. He kept asking, "are you sure your pads aren't scented?" I love him, he's a gem... but also, dude, how are your smell receptors so off? Anyways, I thought that was a funny story some of you would enjoy. Anyone else have a noseblind SO?
