The first time Watson observed Holmes setting up his chemical set at their new shared home, he was more than fascinated. As Holmes had almost no labels on any of his chemicals, it was near impossible to follow what exactly he was doing. He watched memerized as Holmes mixed different liquids, stirred or shook them and put his mixture over the fire in the end.
Still unable to say what Holmes had done, Watson nevertheless was able to recognize one important attribute of the mixture, while Mrs. Hudson was scolding Holmes - it's smoke stank more horrible than Holmes' pipe.
