Interesting to me segment. They even make body odors for sale. Do they use humans for that? Also I've seen "Dirt" smell. OK I don't want that but I'm sure there's a market for it. I have black pepper oil and leather scent oil.

That's interesting, I taste orange oil in Coca Cola not lemon but maybe the lemon mixed with other flavors gives an orange flavor.
