I just had an amazing experience. My Eleodes hispilabris, for the first time, produced its foul smelling hydroquinones. Is this a different kind of hydroquinone than the one commonly used to make products? Strangely, I thought it smelled sort of..nice, like mushrooms, but a stronger odor...

Not all hydroquinones smell foul to us. Dimethyl hydroquinone, for example, has a sweet, fruity aroma and is often employed as an ingredient in perfumery.
