Right Under Your Nose

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

You can search high, you can search low,
Or follow each point of the compass rose,
But no matter where in the world you go,
It's always there right under your nose.



Answer

Philtrum

I love the strange names that some things have! Philtrum comes from the Greek word for "to love" or "to kiss", as the Greeks considered the philtrum to be an erogenous zone. The philtrum is also known as the infranasal depression, and is formed when the nasomedial and maxillary processes meet during embryonic development; if they don't fuse properly, the result is a cleft lip, or harelip.

That's a lot of medical terminology!

By the way, philtrum is an anagram of "lip thrum", from the hint!
