    What gorgeous colour and texture! Thankfully, we don’t have Smellovision yet 😉

    Wonderful writeup and photos. I’m so surprised to find that this is in the Apocynaceae family, with Plumeria, one of the sweetest smelling flowers there is. I guess fragrance is all in the perception.

    Fragrance is of course all in the perception! But the point seems to be that the composition of the fragrance determines its character. And do I wonder how one survives an investigation into these compounds. The first photo was truly breathtaking. Dead rats couldn’t compete.
