Tobacconist Tip
in order for people to perceive (sense) a substance through taste or smell, it must be present in sufficient concentrations, Individual sensitivity will vary for everyone, and there is no limit to personal preferences. An absolute threshold is the smallest concentration of a substance that can be detected by our sense; like one puff of smoke in room may be the minimum amount for someone to detect the tobacco aroma. the terminal threshold is the extreme point of saturation where the addition of more stimuli will not yield any more sensation-for example, if ten are smoking cigars in a room, the eleventh cigar will not change what you smell. Somewhere between these two extremes lies a pleasurable experience. These sensory thresholds are different for everybody. So, a tobacco that is too mild for some can be perfect for another. And, one man's pleasant spices is another man's fire.
