If you would like to the have the smell of your loved one with you forever, you no longer have to keep their pillow or clothes, a company in France said.

Like many people struggling to overcome the death of a loved one, the mother of 52-year-old Katia Apalategui kept the pillow of her late husband.

That inspired Apalategui to think of ways to capture and preserve a person's individual scent. Apalategui got in touch with the University of Le Havre, which developed a technique to reproduce the human scent.

They took the clothes of the person and extracted the smell. After 4 days, they were able to manufacture a perfume. The powerful link between smell and memory means that the product offers comfort to the family of the deceased.

Apalategui’s son plans to launch the business with the help of a chemist. One bottle of perfume will cost around $600.

Apalategui believes that the product will also be a hot item among children temporarily away from their parents and loved ones.

A man was shocked to learn that a hospital threw his amputated leg in the trash like expired meat, according to court documents in Florida.

Now, the man is suing the hospital for emotional distress, saying that his leg was amputated and thrown away with his name still attached to it.

56-year-old John Timiriasieff had his right leg amputated below the knee at Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables.

Instead of properly disposing the leg as Timiriasieff expected and as required by law, Doctors Hospital threw the amputated limb away, according to the lawsuit filed on Wednesday.

Timiriasieff said that his family was contacted by homicide detectives, who were investigating whether he had been the victim of a crime.

When the family returned to the hospital to find out what happened, they refused to give an explanation. Hospital officials took immediate and appropriate measures to prevent similar situations from recurring in the future.

Normally, limbs are incinerated by hospitals. Timiriasieff described the behavior as outrageous and beyond the bounds of human decency in a civilized community.

The leg was discovered in a waste management facility and reported to the police.
