iii: is possibly the STINKING HELLEBORE aka BEAR'S FOOT (tho there seems to be controversy over its stinking nature) (googled controversy via jeff_worrell and braisedbywolves)
iv: GUESTS, according to BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (googled by belecrivain)
vi: REMBRANDT's Sense of Smell was recently rediscovered and reunited with three of the five senses: only Taste is still missing (googled by jeff_worrell)
