Description
An investigation into the biology, psychology and history of smell, and a search for effective ways to put into words scents that we instantly relate to, but find strangely ineffable. The writer’s guidance and advice around how to develop one’s sense of smell is clear and relatable and ensures you are left sniffing the world around you long after you finish the final page. For those who have ever looked past the end of their nose and wondered about its olfactory brilliance, the book includes a 200-entry thesaurus of succinct descriptions of common aromas.
