When I buy ripe strawberries and put them in the car, they smell 
wonderful.  If I then leave them in the car while I do more shopping, 
the car smells like garbage when I enter it again.  In perhaps ten 
minutes, the delicious strawberry smell has concentrated itself 
enough to be disgusting.  The strawberries themselves haven't 
changed, and when I take them into the house, they again smell 
delicious.  Obviously, some component of their scent is pleasant only 
when dilute.
