Fragrant Chemistry

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.

The raw element for a scented alchemy.

The raw element for a scented alchemy.

Different scents

Mixed fragrances

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)
