An interesting topic Matt, since I've been having a field day sniffing my
tulips.  I planted several varieties and the are just beautiful, but for
the most part they don't all smell that great.

Most of them are Darwin's and I didn't expect any odor, one color has a
distinct vegetable odor, one has an apple/pear kinda smell, the Greenlands
smelled sweet and fruity right after picking, but as the day wore on they
began to have a rotten fruit smell, very cloying.  Some smell like honey.

It's been great fun sticking my nose in them throughout the day.  I've
heard of geographic tongue, so maybe there are geographic noses.
