Nature is the consummate creator of olfactory beauty. Consider the classic florals – rose, gardenia, jasmine, tuberose, lilac to name a few. For so many of us their visual beauty elicits unbelievably persistent and clear memories of their spring/summer odor. If we move on to the stone fruits – peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, mangoes, apples, and cherries as well as their berry counterparts – raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, strawberries, blackberries, dewberries, elderberries, gooseberries, and others, we are reminded of their incredibly sweet and inviting tastes.
