I always get confused about the usage of proper words.
Smell is said to be one of the sensations we feel, courtesy of our nose. It can be good or bad.
The scent is a pleasant smell, and can also refer to the body scent of a man, woman or animal.
Aroma always means a pleasing odour. (Plants, drinks and food).
The fragrance is a sweet or sensitive odour.
Perfume is a mixture of fragrant oils and aroma compounds.
Have you ever visited Distillery?
The moment you enter, you would have noticed many things.
Did you find anything AWESOME?
I tell you.
It’s about the smell.
Some feel the smell is pleasant and others felt it’s unpleasant.
And what about the aroma?
Is this pleasant spicy or fragrant? Or
It’s tangy, pungent or vinegar?
I know it’s difficult to answer because not all experience the SMELL in the same way.
“Fragrance, whether strong or delicate, is a highly subjective matter, and one gardener’s perfume is another gardener’s stink” Katharine S. White
DO YOU LOVE THE SMELL OF ‘WET EARTH’ AFTER RAIN?
The smell is known by the name- PETRICHOR
It’s the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil.
Many people love this smell.
The scent is produced by the bacteria when the rain hits the dry ground.
The bacteria residing on the dry soil produce the molecule called ‘Geosmin’ that is released in the air as the rain touches the soil.
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
