You know how turnip greens have a sort of distinctive turnip-green scent and flavor?

Did you also know that your body will excrete that same scent via sweat the following day?

I don't think I'm ever going to eat a turnip green salad again, even if my frugal side is telling me that I paid a whole lot for a bunch of organic baby turnips and I really should eat the leaves as well as the roots. Do not want to smell like turnip!

In other news, I'm trying to see if I can learn to identify plants by floral scent. Harder than expected. I'm wondering if the problem is lack of appropriate vocabulary. I can smell *that* and know that it's linden, and *this* and know that it's climbing rose, but can't describe it so that I can categorize it in memory.
