                                                                                                                                       "Smells detonate softly in our memory like poignant land mines, hidden under the
                                                                                            weedy mass of many years and experiences..."
                                                                                                                                                    - DianeAckerman, A Natural History of the Senses
 

    "The world of olfaction is a rich seam for an exploration of the interrelationshio between science and art."
                                                                                                                                                   - Dr. George Dodd, olfaction evangelist

      The sense of smell my be the most underappreciated of the five senses. We have all imagined the difficulties we would
      encounter living without the ability to see or hear, but most of us probably have not stopped to imagine the potential
      consequences of living without our sense of smell. The smells we encounter throughout life are directly linked to our
      memories and the emotions we link with those memories.
