As if you needed any more convincing that the sense of smell is a wondrous thing, here’s proof: Three perfumes that spritz invisible molecules into the air and quickly explode into flashes of color in your mind.
First we delight in nature’s shades of green and the color of wet spring earth. Then we see—and nearly taste—crisp, golden-white wine in a cold glass. Finally, we experience a brilliant yellow, as though sunshine could be made opaque. And it all comes from this glorious alchemy that is perfume.
Don’t believe us? Smell them. You’ll see.
