I understand now, yes, the oils high in certain chems have a more
similiar smell. I thought she was saying one could smell the
terpineol in something and I was a bit surprised.

What's got me intrigued here is how you say that these oils are
bright yellow and pale purple. See... there's no yellow for me except
for lemon and I'm sure that's a childhood association thing. When it
comes to Rosemary I can smell the sharp sticky leaves- even before
I'd ever seen or touched a Rosemary bush I could smell them! Lavender
gets a green and pale purple smell from me. Now, actually, I should
go back... Tea Tree is kind of yellow. Hmm. I never noticed that
before really. A shiny yellow. The first time I smelled real pure
rose oil I was blown away at the strong dark purple smell. I mean,
purple like a robe wrapped around me. A big number 8.

Are you synaesthetic?

I think science still is intuition- there are just so many things
that we know now for certain that it is easy to forget that. Oh and
pine oil is way to sensitising and irritating. I'd stay away from
that one.
