The view from Perfume Point, Napier. I have heard two reasons for why Perfume Point is called Perfume Point.
The first is, the Napier sewage outlet entered the sea there. Resulting in a lovely smell.
The second dates back from when Napier was a whaling city. The whales were landed at the port and stripped down for their constituants. One of which was an ingrediant of perfume. And again the smell was really pleasent, not.
Please leave a comment if you know which is the real version.
