A rose by any other name

in class we established that 'it matters greatly "what is connected to what in the nervous system' re the sensory side of this omnipotent system. We used synesthesia as an example and butressed our point by showig the McGurk effect: what we sense isn't only the function of one of our sense; it's a function of at the VERY least two of our senses working in tandem. So.....does this mean Shakespeare was wrong and that a rose by any other name wouldn't smell as sweet? (Because smell alone isn't implicated here....)
