know guys, you ain't gonna win this one. I have an active research programme
with somebody at Kew who analyses the scent of Amorphs. If there is no scent on
A. sumawongii, how come we have a perfect gaschromatographic graph for it,
complete with oligomethyl-oligosulphides, that provide for the horrendous stench
(comparable e.g. to bulbifer and muelleri) and a touch of anise scent (which I
noticed) and turned up in the graphs as a small peak of 4-methoxyphenethylalcohol, other wise known as "anise oil".
talk your way out of THAT one, you smarta...s

Dear tsuh yang,
same thing over here in
Germany; small flower, no odor.
I guess Lord P. has some kind of hypersinsitivity to Amorph smells;
some kind of special receptors binding a single molecule and creating an
enthuthiastic storm between his his neurons.....
Orinary people like us just have to freeze in
maybe truck with some kind of nose
