The Empire State appeals to all of our five senses. As our Maker, Sandy Maine of Adirondack Fragrance & Flavor Farm describes it, New York State's breadth presents a varied and deeply recognizable scent map: "The salty seaside, to the streets of New York City with all the wonderful smells of the restaurants; the Finger Lakes smells like fish and lakes and lavender and grape vines, up to the Adirondacks where we have the beautiful, majestic white pine trees and the beauty of nature everywhere, visually and sensually."
