Sights sounds and smells
It's perverse but I love reading about smells. I just received a copy of Luca Turin's fabulous guide to perfume and his astute observations and droll bitchyness make the guide totally addictive. But it occurred to me that perfume is usually described in the language of fine wines and classical music. Which is great if you fart in Latin, but I want to describe the world of scent in the vernacular. And if that language involves references to Misfits songs all the better. So here we go, on with the blog.
