The Emperor of Scent by Chandler Burr
The Emperor of Scent is written by Chandler Burr, who has contributed fragrance reviews to many national publications. The story follows Luca Turin, a scientist chasing the details of how our sense of smell functions at its finest level. Turin also wrote a best-selling book of perfume reviews, and has utterly failed to ingratiate himself to the established world of scent science with his controversial theory that scent sensation is the result of molecular vibration rather than molecular shape. More approachable than Turin’s book The Science of Scent, this book gives a layman-friendly glimpse into the world of scent science. Recommended for the slightly geeky fragrance lover.
