It's true!  All smells are particulate.

You are correct, George.  Airborne particulate matter, both solid and liquid, is an odor transport mechanism.  And may I say that it is excellent to see you posting again.  Welcome back! Thumbs Up

In order to be perceptible by our noses, chemicals need to be lipophilic (fat soluble), small (molecular weight < 300 Da) and volatile. Fragrant molecules escape from their fluid or even solid state into the air. The sensory tissue, called olfactory epithelium, is a mucous membrane which lies on the roof of the nasal cavity. Odorants reach this area (approximately 7 cm away from the nostrils) in the air we breathe; if something smells very faintly, we sniff two or three more times, forcing more air and fragrance towards the sensory membrane. There, the molecules dissolve in the mucous and then couple to smell receptors that are expressed on the plasma membrane of sensory cells. The cells send nerve impulses to our brain, which learns to associate the smell with the original substance (such as a rose), lets us recognise it even when the object is hidden (such as when entering a house and knowing that a cake is in the oven) or classifies it as unknown (such as when we go to an exotic restaurant for the first time).

Thanks, Stan.  I'm more or less retired now, so I have more time available to me to make an occasional post.

Well, that's good.  Hope you are enjoying your retirement.  And, glad you have time to post here.  As you can see, if you stay away too long they demote you to Mess-Crank.  So, let 'er rip.
