How Colors Smell"When someone asks me what flavor slushie I want, I don’t say “cherry,” I say “red.” That flavor is called “red.” “Blue” is another flavor a slushie might have.

But what color is the smell of, say, soap?A new study published in PLOS One finds that some people say white, some say yellow, some say blue.

Hello! -

williamshatner:

So I’m new to this but old to Social Media. My purpose for being here is to blog about my experiences online and get out of the 140 character limit.
