I like the scent of Fritillaria imperialis. My husband finds it unpleasant. But then I also like butyl mercaptan (skunk) if not fresh application - did have a de-scented skunk for a house pet for 5 years. I also do not detect fragrance from Tulbaghia simmleri (= T. fragrans). Isn't there some correlation between the ability to taste a certain flavor (as Lee Poulsen mentioned) and the ability to curl the sides of your tongue to form a sort of tube? And when my cat comes indoors on a cold winter day is there some scent of "cold" that clings to his fur for a few moments, or is it my imagination.
