Characteristics.├óÔÇØÔé¼The odour of the flowers left in the room two days
caused the following remarkable symptoms: Sensation as if forehead
were expanded and as if his ideas were floating outside his brain.
Strange feeling of pleasant and easy comfort, and as if he scarcely
touched earth with his feet, and had to gather ideas from afar, as if
they were floating in the clouds. Involved in a most beautiful
atmosphere, bright calm as the sunlight at noon. Sensible confusion of
ideas across the cerebrum, with drawing, nervous irritation back to
cerebellum and a spinal irritation or depletion of nervous circulation
in medulla oblongata (whilst handling and cutting the flowers). The
odour is also said to have caused spasms; and the juice instilled into
the eye causes amaurosis according to Froriep.
