odor

Fragrances determine our life, as well-known gastronomy and wine expert Guy Bonnefoit in his book "Fascinating Wine & Flavors" writes: The human skin has a surface of about two square meters and has up to 300 odor components. Depending on the physical condition and mood, the odors change as well. A dog can make a precise distinction between people who are well-meaning and anxious to meet it. Every mood has its own smell. You can smell happy. An experienced country doctor reports that he is able to recognize certain illnesses when entering a sickroom. Every disease develops its typical "scent". Diabetes smells fruity, diphtheria sweet, typhoid after baked bread and gout after lion cage or pet shop (end of quote).
