[Trans] Kame Camera - Vol.19 Scent  
-Of course, perfumes, fragrances and scents.
-Kame's fetish... xP
-What creates each person's personal scent.
...and well, good luck with the visuals. As always, Kame is pretty straightforward in what he wants to say ^^'
And this time, thanks to scorch66 for correcting my English~

What's the scenery of the bottom of the heart that Kamenashi Kazuya's lens reflects?

Vol.19 匂い – SCENT

「For me, scents and fragrances are similar to gasoline for a car. They awake my real nature and give me power.」


Landscapes have a scent too. It happens that I remember a sight or that the scenery I can see changes due to the scent. Recently I'm often outside so I also feel the change of the seasons through the natural scent. The scent of the wind that blows through the fresh green leaves, the scent of the rain... I like them.

Vanilla candles, baby powder, baseball glove, the curry that was standard dish every week on Wednesday at home......

In my life and in my memories there are many scents I like, and if I'm asked “What's your fetish?”, I have a scent fetish without fail (laughs).

At home I have fragrance goods all over the place like aroma candles, room sprays or body creams, and I'm very particular about my own scent too. As starters the perfume, I use the same one since when I was 16 years old, a jasmine and vanilla fragrance in a red bottle. When I went overseas I bought it in bulk and I always have a stock of 30-40 pieces (laughs). Following the mood I use a powder-like scented body cream, but... Basically the perfume I've always continued using is my scent, and I guess that even people around me think the same. Now even when I go to collect baseball data I'm said “When I smell this scent, I think 'Kame-chan has arrived'”. There are also people among players I get along well with or among kohais that liked it and imitate me.

Men who spray ladies perfume are unusual, right? Probably there are many girls that would like men to spray a manly men perfume, but my perfume is right down to the line something I do for myself. I use it because I want to be myself, I want to feel good.

For me perfume has a sense of “filling” more than “spraying”. The same as filling gasoline in a car. It's a precious energy so I fill it even when I don't plan to meet people. After spraying one puff on both wrists, I strongly rub the wrists one on the other, then I properly rub and rub behind the ears and the scruff of the neck.... end of infusion! (laughs) I want to mix and make one thing out of the body scent and the perfume. I want to make it “my scent”. I want the girl to do the same. I'm charmed by girls that add a perfume that suit them, no matter if it's rose or powder or shampoo, and make it their own scent. Because as expected, that girl's own scent is important, so if I can feel it I'm taken aback.

I want to feel that person's scent which is in the inner part of the perfume's scent

The girl's scent that I like most is the scent you find from the scruff of the neck to the back of the head, around the top of the head. I think that around that zone a feminine scent, that particular person's scent comes out. It doesn't mean that I intentionally smell it! (laughs) When a man embraces her, the girl's head or scruff come exactly around the nose, right? I wonder if I'm intensely attracted by it because maybe from the scalp the person's particular scent is set free to mix with the shampoo's scent...

Romantic love is “scent” too. For visual beauty, magazines and TV are enough, but the scent can't be smelled unless the person is next to you (laughs). There is a figurative expression that says along the line “a person with whom you feel a similar scent”. Indeed it sometimes happens that “I don't exactly know why but I like this girl's scent” and in practice I get along well with her. Also the owner of the restaurant I often go to, even if she isn't someone I can fall in love with, has an intensely pleasant scent~ (laughs).

Thinking about that, you know, when I'm playing baseball I mysteriously take a macho odor more than usual. Is it because the wilderness wakes up? (laughs) In my opinion, I feel like that each person's peculiar “scent” isn't just the body odor, but it also comes from feelings as well. With what kind of consciousness [the person] is living, what kind of feelings is experimenting and with what kind of sense is living: I wonder if these facts also influence the creation of a person's scent. For this reason, not only does the scent touch animal instincts, but also probably suggests compatibility.

Kame’s fixed point of observation
Right now he's in the midst of the movie he stars in, “Ore ore”. Kamenashi-kun said happily “General director Miki is an incredibly amusing person, the filming set is cheerful and we're continuously laughing. It seems he'll pull out many faces from me that I don't know either, I'm looking forward to it”. We don't know if the reason is that he's an idol or because it's his original nature, but his desire of transformation is pretty high. “For this reason I guess that this role (1 person playing 25 roles) is perfect too (laughs). This year there's also the play “DREAM BOYS”, so this might become my fullest year of my whole life until now. Just imagining it I get excited!”
By Maquia


When I read the theme (on Maquia's official twitter) I already knew he was about to talk about his fetish xDD He already did in an old Maquia. And also, glad to see that he's faithful to his perfume since 10 years ago! Even though... stocking 30-40 bottles? Kame~ xD;;

Gelsomino e vaniglia sono due profumi che uso io °__° ma sono davvero molto femminili e dolci. Mi chiedo questo profumo in bottiglia rossa che usa Kame che profumo sia.
Mi ricordo perfettamente il vecchio numero di Maquia in cui parlava del suo fetish per gli odori e per quella zona della testa e del collo di una donna.. me lo ricordo perché mi ha quasi "traumatizzato". Da quella volta ho cominciato a lavarmi i capelli con più cura di prima e a mettere un po' di profumo anche nella parte posteriore del collo quando esco XD

Qual è il profumo secondo me te l'ho già detto... anche se alla fine l'ho scritto anche qui xD e sì, ricordo perfettamente anche io quel Maquia, più che altro perché sapevo le reazioni che avrebbe dato alle fan (le stesse che sta dando questo volume... XD).
Mi sa che qualche influenza inconscia questo articolo l'avrà anche su di me! In effetti per i giapponesi la nuca è considerata molto femminile e sexy, sinceramente non ho mai pensato di metterci profumo, avendo sempre i capelli sciolti xD Però anche lui li ha lunghi, quindi... Uff, Kame, ti odio xD

Oh my god Tartle-kun I love you and your scent fetish SO MUCH omg I was grinning the whole way through reading this - there is a little half-Japanese, half-Italian boy (I kid you not) staring at me across the seat in the departure gate and he is so curious as to why this foreign lady is smothering giggles behind her hand... XD;; 30-40 bottles... Sasuga Tartle-kun... XD;; and UGH KAME LET ME SMELL YOU I was actually thinking only this morning about how everyone who meets him always comments that he smells nice and I was like, "I wonder what it's really like..." and then this article appears... #fate XD ohhh kamekamekamekamekamekame XD

Wait wait WAIT THE ICON *dies* ME APPROVES. VERY MUCH. *major brain damages* But how can you pretend that I can reply to you decently NOW. @.@ I want a scruffy!Kame icon too now~ ;A;

Maquia is really becoming my grinning-facepalming moment xD;; He's so cute and sometimes kind of naive in saying such personal things (thus the facepalming) but he's so lovely xD;; And yeah, the 30-40 bottles... orz typical of Cho rich Kamenashi xD I also facepalmed at his "idk why I suddenly smell like a man while playing baseball" *headdesk* Wonder why, Kame? It must happen to you too, sometimes. Don't think it's just baseball's fault xD;;
Lining up for the "let me smell you" queue~ xD;; (sounds creepy ) As he said, even though I know the perfume, i wonder what's the result of perfume+Kame's odor mix. Everyone praises him, so must be *-*

#destiny of meeting half-Japanese half-Italian boys while reading Maquia xD I'm glad you managed to read it before leaving ;^; kamekamekamekame~~

Awwww it's so cute that he never changed his perfume.
It's always so interesting to read his maquia texts <3

Thank you very much for the translation I had much fun reading it!

Kame, sei malato xD 30-40 bottigliette??? E' peggio di me con tutti i prodotti di skincare che compro!
Voglio sapere qual è il suo profumo, maledetto, doveva dirlo! Forse non l'ha fatto perchè poi le fan giappe l'avrebbero comprato privando lui dei suoi mille rifornimenti... xD

Scleri a parte, mi piace tanto leggere Kame ♥ Questa frase mi piace molto: not only does the scent touch animal instincts, but also probably suggests compatibility.

Ah, e... si stupisce di sudare quando gioca a baseball? Kame... *facepalm*

Thank you for translating!

My mind kinda just went on hyperdrive on
Now even when I go to collect baseball data I'm said “When I smell this scent, I think 'Kame-chan has arrived'”.

Made my night, this whole volume. Thank you. <3
