For our posts on what smells are, the Clear Science staff used a strawberry as the example because it’s well known what chemicals are in a strawberry and because we like them. But did you know: not everyone is a fan?

Yeah, they don’t like tangerines either!



Good to know, username: leslieleigh! Can all you Clear Scientists out there find the list of volatile chemicals that give a tangerine its smell? (We found it with google.)
Do you see any common chemicals between a strawberry and a tangerine? From these two data points you might be able to form a hypothesis about chemicals cats don’t like to smell!
