Jillian took 20 units of Chemistry, one of which is organic chem where she and her team used orange peels to extract a fragrant monoterpene.
A Tricky Fusion
The breeze of air around us has evolved into an assortment of aroma, thanks to the distillation set-ups extracting oils from fruits, flowers, grasses and leaves in chemistry laboratories. Not only do these scents make us unique, but these also show our personality.
Everything nice that blends
Some mild, some intense.
Oh, what magic
The way they are made
A little peel of this and petal of that does the trick
So unique in the way they persuade.
Citrus, roses and daisies
Continue to grow please
You are great blessings indeed
For our fragrance chemistry.
You cannot kill a breeze, a wind, a fragrance; you cannot kill a dream or an ambition.
— Michel Onfrey (French contemporary writer and philosopher)
