Ive started reading a new book last night and already Im drawn into it. Its the story of Luca Turin and how he came to be involved in solving the mystery of how we smell. Im nearly halfway through and Im hooked.
It is quite fascinating how he came to be involved in solving the mystery of how we smell, and how various apparently unrelated scientific studies and theories in fact came to be inter-related. It also gives an amazing behind the scenes insight to the secretive world of scent manufacture and perfumerie.
But best of all, after Jamie Goode highlighted it on his blog, I managed to get it for the princely sum of £1 from Amazon. I also managed to pick up a few wine related books for an equally small pittance.
