Millions for a Scent
Take one last deep sniff, fellows, ’cause the perfume scientists are hell-bent on smelling up the world.
By Lester David
SCIENCE is smelling up the world, but sweetly.
Sniff cautiously at your beat-up spare tire. It might smell like a garden bed in springtime. Uncork the pot of glue on your workbench. The pungent aroma of a northwoods pine grove may seep out. Put your nostrils close to a can of paint, a bottle of furniture polish, a container of fly spray. They’re fragrant jasmin, mysterious roseau and sharp-scented saffron!
