skunk essence

skunk stink (ok that's a badger)


also, i just finished reading galaxy of scents: the ancient art of perfume making (just for the smell of it) by dr. mary lynne, who sounded like she'd just be a nut job

it was actually a delightful book to read, highly recommended. and if anyone can do the chemistry she describes, i'd love to chat!

"the entire history of the world has been written in three fluids: blood, tears and perfume"
