Lactic Acid – Love it or Hate it!

Fragrance is a very personal thing. It can evoke memories, change your mood, it can even make you hungry and a single perfume can smell unique on each of us – why is that? Our noses can identify millions of different smells from more than 130 different odour molecules out there in the world.  It is a very powerful and under-appreciated sense!  Smell is processed in the olfactory bulb in the brain which sorts sensation into perception – so it Read More...
