Me: Hmm...
Me: *looks up Camembert cheese on Wikipedia for a fic detail*
Me: ...Holy crap, it literally smells like gym socks???

Wikipedia: Camembert cheese gets its characteristic odor from many compounds. These include diacetyl (buttery flavoring for popcorn), 3-methylbutanal, methional (degradation product of methionine), 1-octen-3-ol and 1-octen-3-one (degradation products of fats), phenethyl acetate, 2-undecanone, δ-decalactone, butyric acid, and isovaleric acid (odor of gym socks).

Me: Well. That sure is a thing, then, isn't it.

In other news, it does seem like Camembert can be safely stored at room temperature for a fair amount of time, so I don't need to sneak a Camembert-exclusive mini-fridge into Adrien's room. Not that Plagg would let any go uneaten long enough to go truly bad...

OOOOO

Cheese is weird that way.

Two of the most distinctive odour/flavour compounds of Parmesan cheese are also those of vomit! Give people in the lab a sniff of those two compounds mixed together, and it's even odds which they'll say they're smelling.

Heh. I like a ... certain range ... of cheese.

Brie is too goopy for my taste, and Stilton is too mouldy, but the things in between are delicious. (Yes, including Parm.)
