Required reading: Nose Dive by @mindmarrow – this is a fabulous compedia on olfaction for anyone, especially artists, writers, anyone intellectually curious and of course, fumeheads. Not only is it well-researched, Catherine’s manifesto on scent enlightens those who tend to experience life through their other senses. For any perfumer who has had to explain their work to the uninitiated, this book covers olfaction at large and lifts the lid on the topic of perfume and lets the subject matter breathe a bit more and waft into our imagination and leave a sillage of what is possible. – indie perfume veteran Yosh Han
…. hey, i m reading the book as we speak, every conservative ( or conventional )….. in the fragrance industry should read it (but they won’t get it) and any new comer into the industry should read it 👍👍👍 read and apply that is. – scent artist, perfumer and industry expert Christophe Laudamiel
