Smelling violets… Really?

I am very proud of this post. It is a perfect compliment to the I Will Never Be Able to Smell post because you must first convince yourself that you can smell as well as the experts can, and then learn to use the general categories for the aromatic series, which I introduce here. So, in this post you will discover what the aromatic series is, and how, at first glance, the aromas may seem like they would be easy to identify.

The real test though, is putting the learning into the practice phase. I hope that by viewing this post, the smelling exercises are simplified. Remember that you can also try to discover these aromas while tasting the wine in your mouth.

In order to make the exercises easier, here is a chart of the aromatic series, which I use in this post. It shows the general categories of the aromas, and the more specific aromas that are within each general categories.
