I find this so fascinating. My only experience with synesthesia is with the actual smell of things translating to color, and it's obviously not limited to perfumes, it's all odors. Nothing else does it for me, but I can't smell something without seeing what color that smell is (and also seeing/feeling the texture of it, but that's much more difficult to express via a post) regardless of juice color or presentation, though they do overlap sometimes, as you say.Me too. I was very surprised when my loved one said that this is likely to be the case of mild synesthesia.
Sometimes a name has nothing to do with it for me but sometimes I can see the overlap with something - liquid color, elements of presentation, etc.
(Edited to add: Actually, that's not entirely true. I sometimes see color and texture when listening to music, and that's usually about a particular voice. Ella Fitzgerald's voice, for instance, is an undulating river of deep chocolate satin.)
