The Sweet (Or Not So Sweet) Smell of Success | H&H Graphics

With as many as 400 olfactory receptors, the human nose may be able to distinguish among at least a trillion different odors.

So even though we have a list of more than 800 of them that we can reproduce as part of our expertise in scented printing, it’s a jaw dropping bit of context that suggests we have a way to go before we run out of possibilities…

But of course, we’re all about possibilities here at H&H Graphics and we have an R&D Department that lives for a challenge.

It sounds like a question for a poet, or maybe a marketer hawking a new detergent brand, but in fact, it was scientific inquiry that settled the matter, at least in the most literal sense:

“…the smell of line-dried laundry is due to the unique combination of traces of atmospheric hydrocarbons, sunlight and a wet fabric surface. This surface photochemistry is likely to be widespread in the environment on surfaces of natural materials.”

That was the conclusion of researchers at the University of Copenhagen, who decided to get to the bottom of what was so appealing about that fresh laundry smell. They washed a set of cotton Ikea towels in ultra-purified water, hung them in various locations and then sealed them into bags for testing. Their research identified a collection of aldehydes and ketones responsible for the lovely smell that has been inspiring poets and detergent campaigns since long before its source had been decoded.
