The Empire of the Scents

.
Kim Nguyen 2014

The pleasures of food, of the erotic, of family – form the very fabric of our emotional lives. And smell is an essential emotional trigger. There is more truth to call our sense of smell our sense of desire because it springs our passions. Smell moves us, subliminally and profoundly. It moves us to act and do things we are wholly unaware of. It enriches our lives, gives us with unspeakable joys. Astronaut Chris Hadfield describes the smell of space, food molecule expert François Chartier talks about the sound of flavors, and Guido, a metaphysical perfumer who has created the scent of a woman, explains how his perfume came into being.
