Dear Steve,
	This story is pretty amazing
	First for someone to bring a bouquet of Dracunculus to an 
office - WOW !

	And then just "washing out " the smell.

	If simply washing down the flowers to eliminate the smell is 
so common why is it so hard to find in the literature or on the web?

	I have never heard of this method before, but it must be 
common knowledge in 'some circles'. Couldn't find any thing on the 
web in this regard,

		Thanks for your experiences, too.		Jim W.
