Coffee beans and perfume

While shopping around Harbour Town a few weeks ago, I came across this perfume store and decided to drop by to check out the fragrance collection. As I picked up a test stripe on the counter, I saw this glass of coffee beans and a few others being placed around the shop. Curiosity kicked in and the mischievous side of me decided to experiment a little to find out the real purpose of the coffee beans.

I dipped one of the test stripe covered with perfume deep into the coffee beans for a few seconds. Upon retrieving it, I smelled it and to my surprise, the stripe is now covered by rich coffee aroma. A search on the internet confirmed my little experiment.

Findings: Coffee beans enables on to reset the sense of smell after sampling a perfume, thus allowing you to continue sampling other fragrances without the previous smell lingering around.

Interesting indeed.
