Located this interesting survey on scent here and determined that this was a good way to introduce myself to this new blog. So enjoy, and consider please that I am merely a novice perfume enthusiast.
1. What does your sense of smell mean to you?
For me, my sense of smell is my vehicle to a different time and place. What motivates me to keep trying fragrance is that each one is capable of telling an entirely unique story. Smells are intended to remind us of all the extremes in our life, our greatest pleasures in sex and food, and some of our greatest dangers which our nose can warn us against before any other sense. But then there is everything in between those extremes. The smell of bread, of metal, of rubber and hot asphalt, of dirt, fresh cut grass, the boastful hyacinth, mildew on wet clothes, the smell of a cat’s tongue licked fur. The plethora of colors that paint our olfactory experience in life. These are what tie us to our sense of self, our sense of time and place, they move us emotionally and guide us instinctively.
