Secret of Scent by Luca Turin
A highly technical but uber informative work of a scent jedi. Luca Turin came to fame as a perfume reviewer, but is also a chemist/physicist/biologist working on the fundamental science of scent. This work describes his attempt to revive a long-forgotten theory on the underlying mechanics of scent and hopefully win a Nobel Prize in the process. TL;DR, he didn’t win. But the book presents a lot of interesting ideas about the science of scent perception. Recommended for scientists and technical folks. Paperback.
