Making Sense of Scents

The Nose

The Nose

 

The Nose it is a wondrous thing

It lets all kinds of smells go in

And gently warms them in its maze

And probes and checks that scented haze

Then lets you know it’s cardamom

Or aniseed or fruity gum

It sorts the jasmine from the rose

How does it work do you suppose?

Ten thousand odours it can tell

This providential sense of smell

A Nobel Prize awaits the one

Who figures out how this is done!
