I very much like the fact that the New York Times has hired a fragrance reviewer to contribute real journalism on the subject of scent. After years of being pretty primitive when it came to essential oils and fragrances (and a bit like Granny Clampett who as you may recall, used to place “vanilly” extract behind her ears on “The Beverly Hillbillies”), I’m seeing more merit to my least favorite sense. By expanding my appreciation of smell, I’ve found new ways to be present. I also like the fact that the commercial perfume industry is producing fragrances that are more natural and ephemeral.
What’s your pleasure in the realm of fragrance? Everybody’s different.
