Published twice a year, Nez explores the world around us via our sense of smell. It provides an insight into the vital role that olfactory sensations play in our lives in a novel approach that encompasses art, literature, science, history, food, and perfume. While a large proportion of each issue is obviously given over to fragrance and perfumery, the relationship between scent and taste is inescapably part of the magazine as well.
This eleventh issue explores the close links that exist between our nose and the notions of life and death. Among the features are a profile of Frédéric Marr, an advocate for savoring chocolate made from raw, unroasted beans, as well as explorations of the scents that humans use to judge whether something is new born and fresh or decaying.
Nez is an invitation to explore the world through our olfactory sensations, adopting a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses art, literature, photography, science, history, gastronomy and, of course, perfumery, providing its readers with a better understanding of the essential role the sense of smell plays in our lives.
