One of my passions is perfume, an art and science that has become sadly homogenised in recent years, with iconic houses like Chanel and Guerlain bowing to influences that are steadily replacing natural ingredients with synthetic alternatives.  There is nothing as evocative as scent, as the French author Proust famously described.  And, of course, perfume can be powerfully erotic, not just pleasing the nose but eliciting a complex and subtle cascade of responses, of mind, body and soul.
