Hmmmm dimethyl disulfide CH 3 SSCH 3 only has ten atoms which would make it a
candidate for detection in interstellar space, a safe distance for sensitive
nostrils. CH 3 SH Methyl mercaptan has been known for years there. I'll have
to check on the spectrum when our local microwave spectrum guru Barry Turner
returns--looks pretty symmetric bad for rotational transitions) but big
enough for some floppiness.

Couldn't find an online sprectral treatment but...
In Ontario at least, growing too many blooming amorphophalli
may be illegal (though I don't know how many might produce 40 micrograms
of dimethyl disulfide...):
