As researchers Nadia Wagner and Adam Jasper observe, the difficulty with communicating smell is not due to the subjectivity of perception but in describing it in language.
This is evident in the English language, which has no specific vocabulary to describe smell and approximates olfactory experience using adjectives borrowed from the other senses.
A lot of the people that responded to Cory warned against the stereotypes I mentioned as if they are based in solid truth.
These come together at the glomerulus, a structure which transmits signals to the olfactory bulb, a part of the brain directly above the nasal cavity and below the frontal lobe.
From here, the signals are fed into the limbic system, where emotion and memory are processed, before finally passing into the language-processing frontal cortex.
These factors work against the business-minded artist. My guess is that many people view artists as selfish or unstable...
they reduce the art community to little more than a sandbox filled with volatile children.
