Of the highest odor: Time to respect the durian

As the story spread over the Internet, I’m sure durian lovers were dismayed to see most articles painting durian in such a negative light, namely, for its notorious stench and that in several Southeast Asian countries it’s banned from public transit and hotels.

Durian doesn’t really have an equivalent in flavor (even though people have likened the flavor to almond or vanilla).
