“Why do bulls and horses turn up their nostrils when excited by love?” Darwin ponderedWhere_is_the_love deep in one of his unpublished notebooks.  Scientists long ago documented a rich array of animal pheromones, everything from seal, fox and civet, various rodents, boars, beavers, musk deer . . . even the effluence discharged by whales.   Discovering biochemical bouquets for attracting mates as well as marking territory and used for defense, as is the case with the noble skunk.  And, we took them as our own for exotic and sought after perfumes, not putting much thought into human scent, assuming our unique evolution and poor sense of smell lends to the idea that unique olfactory-challenged, sight-oriented hairless bipeds would be the species that conquers the Earth, here are some of the most expensive perfumes in the world.

Wedding cakes are important when it involves planning the entire theme and feel of the wedding. You should not hold back until the final second before deciding on the right one for your wedding. Doing that may just increase the stress of planning that wedding itself. It is not necessary that wedding cakes should be white with the usual flowers.

You may make use of the wedding colors. Blue designs are always gender neutral. A chocolate brown idea is a surprising wedding cake color which will make the wedding reception a wonderful one, attracting people. Should you decide to get a white cake, it is good to mix the color of the decorations. Ideas today make use of a number of shapes for additional interest. In fact, you may let your cakes be in square form and put in a tower rather than making use of tiered stands.

Also, modern cakes can be fanciful by integrating several shapes, like rectangles and round together. In case you prefer a fanciful element at the wedding, consider using an idea which looks as if it is leaning. Wedding cakes recipes are very important. You will find quality recipes of  functions, Hawaiian functions, white wedding functions, and so on.

There are also high quality recipes of frosting and icing to make the cakes very beautiful. A few of these quality recipes are traditional although some are of modern versions. As said before, the designs of modern wedding cakes are not just about the usual flowers we are used to. Today, wedding cakes could have geometric designs such as polka dots, swirls or stripes.

You may let your wedding cakes be based on the wedding dress by integrating bead or lace work designs.  If you choose to go for flowers on the cake, you may let the baker make big tropical flowers. Also, it is good to have cherry blossoms on the branch for additional color contrast and texture on the traditional cake.

Modern wedding designs include traditional elements in very good ways. You may design your own cakes so as to exhibit your own personality in the wedding reception. It is possible to make your design the focus of the reception while integrating the entire wedding reception atmosphere or theme because modern wedding ideas can have many colors and shapes.

I don’t doubt that many of my readers here, like myself, dismiss the notion that we humans are bereft of scent-driven.  That just because early scientists in autopsy couldn’t find the same hardware in humans, those two little pits, the VNO (vomeronasal organ) in each nostril, we had been left out of the savory realm of scent.  So, our olfactory prowess was dismissed and discarded, those early analysts  nodding their heads in agreement that humans simply did not rely on scent to any appreciable degree . . . and even physiologists declaring in the 1930’s that humans lacked the brain apparatus necessary to process VNO signals.  So, even if we had a VNO, the thinking was our brains wouldn’t be able to interpret its signals.

 

So it goes, the scientific dogma for most of the previous century that humans do not rely on scent to any appreciable degree.  I’m here to report that reports of our olfactory devolution have been greatly exaggerated!  And, it will come as no surprise to readers here that physiologists did discover a functioning vomeronasal organ inside the human nose. Using microscopes unavailable to early nasal explorers, discovering pits lined with receptor cells that fire like mad when presented with certain substances.  And probably less surprising that the discovery was prompted by a venture capitalist searching to cash in on manufactured human pheromones.  Tom Tykwer’s 2006 movie Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, featuring Jean-Baptiste Grenouille’s dark quest for the ultimate perfume ingredient and its exquisite period sets could have us fantasizing a clever 17th century feminine entrepreneur doing a brisk business selling handkerchiefs scented with her body odor.  Or, who knows, perhaps it is the next olfactory market evolution yet to come.

Although, even that is complicated in that there are still anomalies to the general rule of choice yet to be definitely ascertained. Doctors have known since the mid-1980s that couples suffering repeated spontaneous abortions tend to share more MHC similarities than couples who carry to term. And, if we don’t also know and accept same sex attraction by now, we might remain in those dark, dank ages, now times have change and you need to go with it, sex attraction involves confidence and if you don’t have it, it will not happen, need to boost your confidence? If you are looking for the best erectile dysfunction doctor, do visit us.   Those who might be offended by the notion that animal senses play a role in their attraction to a partner need not worry. For the best penile extender do visit us.  As the role of smell in human affairs yields to understanding, we see not that we are less human but that our tastes and emotions are far more complex and sophisticated than anyone ever imagined.

Perfume_Bottle_AntiqueWhile this ramble may give you something interesting you may not previously know, on this Valentines Day, you’re probably more interested in a simple bottle of perfume, rose-scented tea and the ever-beloved chocolate delight.  Just remember, if you haven’t developed an awareness yet, while you are nibbling on that lover’s ear, to sniff a bit . . . and judge for yourself whether he/she is the one.

Love and Smelly Kisses,

  1. I loved your comment on no FDA approvals on essential oils. You are so right. Whoever posted that doTerra has is is 100% wrong. I believe in EOs. They have their place in a health minded individual. They are a complement to one’s health care system.

    In our country at the turn of the century 1800s into 1900s I believe that cyanide was used as a medical cure or cancer. Cyanide is also used in jewelry-making and certain kinds of photography such as sepia toning. Cyanides are used as insecticides for fumigating ships. Cyanide salts are used for killing ants, and have in some places been used as rat poison (the less toxic poison arsenic is more common). Although usually thought to be toxic, cyanide and cyanohydrins have been demonstrated to increase germination in various plant species. And we might even ‘eat’ those plants! Even today we use Chemotherapy (another poison) to cure (?) cancer. Those are just examples of how our culture uses poisons are used to “help” humans even some today.

    The use of a lot of the oils when used properly can and do help or cure individuals of their ailments. I do not believe they are poisons. Our culture is still evolving to find cures or help for conditions. We will always be evolving. All this being said I believe in essential oils.

    I think we are on the same page.

    Thanks for your blog.
