New Zealand man has one of the world's most discerning sniffers

Each time he inhales, he cocks his head to the side and closes his eyes. After three long whiffs: "It's interesting. It has a sheep and leathery thing going on," he says.

"Is that me or the perfume then?" the farmer's daughter in me laughs nervously. Maybe the master perfumer is confused, having sniffed too much farm air in his latest quest to find the quintessential Kiwi scent.

"It's from the Beautiful Estee Lauder period," he says, going back to my arm for a few more slow and measured inhalations. "Ahh. It's J'Adore."

He nails it, first attempt.

Maybe it's just me, but I figured the smell of sheep in N.Z. is sort of like the smell of French fries in the U.S. -- you know, ubiquitous? < rimshot >
