In today’s Wall Street Journal, Ellen Byron covers a lot of familiar factoid territory on the sense of smell, some of it dubious, e.g., the previously debunked coffee bean meme. She quotes a couple of my scientific colleagues, Alan Hirsch and Richard Doty, and my former perfumery colleague Ron Winnegrad. She also briefly cites the cases of two anosmics. Not much new here but there’s lots of pictures.
