The Benzene Ring structure is well know for giving products a sweet and spicy scent. This drawing fuses the sweetness of the honey comb, floral geometry, and the chemical bonds of a benzene ring. The discovery  of this structure has it’s own interesting story.

Kekule the German Chemist who discovered the ring structure of benzene, regarded as one of the principal founders of modern organic chemistry, revealed at a 1890 symposium that the structure came to him in a dream. One night while working he dosed off and dreamt of atoms whirling and dancing before his eyes. The atoms then began to reassemble themselves into long rows that seemed to move about in a snake like motion. As he watched the snake dance, the vision progressed until the snake devoured its own tail.
