It’s too bad that “olfactory warfare” must go to the point of nervous system disruption. It seems likely that, stopping well short of real physical damage, many stinky tactical packages I can imagine could so distract an enemy simply from their foulness that the objective could be met without loss of human life.

No question, on the flip side, of the benefits of “the good stuff.” I find myself craving a whiff of muskdeer or sandal or civet (yes, civet) the same way I might crave something sweet — and to satisfy the craving is genuinely calming and centering. There is much to be learned in and from aromatherapy.
