  Durian/ Sauromatum perfume
From: "Randall M. Story" story at caltech.edu> on 2002.05.16 at 23:42:03(8819)
Thinking some nasty, toxic chemical had spilled somewhere, some coworkers
called our Chemical Safety Department a few months ago after one of the
janitors ate a Durian,threw the remains in the trash and smelled up the
entire floor. Having tasted Durian a couple years prior, I knew the scent
was familiar, but was unable to convince others of this until we found the
evidence! (People did not react nearly so strongly to a recent
Sauromatum/Typhonium blooming) During my prior experience with this fruit,
we had put the "carcass" outside because the smell was unbearable. The next
morning it was covered with dozens of metallic green beetles.

Regarding smelly flowers, has anyone here ever mentioned the website for an
outfit called "Whole Energy Essences"
