After a bit of a hiatus which I had to take to recover from minor surgery, I have started going back to the stores to look for stuff to sniff. Unfortunately, I haven't found much lately that truly inspires me.

There can be little doubt that certain synthetic perfumes are simply intolerably gross. But others actually further induce acute psychological and emotional stress in some but not all wearers. That such compositions remain on the market would seem definitively to prove that some people's nerve endings are far more sensitive than others. Although those who deny the relevance—or even reality—of skin chemistry may attempt to mock those who identify chemical
