You 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".
Try to 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 admiration.... :o

maybe truck with some kind of nose numbness :-(
