    What is the substance of a smell?
    When an odor fills the room what filled the room?
    Does it have weight? Molecules?

    Knave, I say both. Everything tends to want to go to equilibrium.
    I noticed this by seeing matches in bathrooms.

    The density of a ghost or apparition is about the same as a puff of smoke.

    Wiki says “An odor or odour or fragrance is caused by one or more volatilized chemicalcompounds, generally at a very low concentration, that humans or other animals perceive by the sense of olfaction. Odors are also commonly called scents, which can refer to both pleasant and unpleasant odors.”

    Smelling a fart is bad enough. Tasting one is worse.

    Silent but deadly... :shocked: no advance warning :nono:

    Odors are mostly VOCs, Volatile Organic Compounds. But you can have Inorganic Compounds also.

    So yes Knave, there are molecules. There are some that will gag you, or stink, or be sharp like 22 on fire. Some will shut you down like chlorine or ammonia. I remember a meow smell shut me down when I was 17.

    Need a gift for those that have everything? Or, a not so subtle hint to someone near and dear or perhaps a coworker?

    Complete with descriptions and reviews. A must have for the modern man.

    You may also consider "ManWipes" to help reduce the embare ass ment of skid marks and the distracting odor of chocolate in the heat of the moment.
