I heard that few people bother to make borei menei b’samim when they open a perfume or cologne or an aftershave lotion bottle. Is there a halachic source for this?
I heard that the beracha is not made when you smell the scent being worn by another person. In fact, a man may not smell perfume being worn by a woman as it is ערוה! Is there a halachic source for this?
