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.

Issue #1 is available solely in French. It includes an interview with Alain Passard, who asserts, “I compose with 20-25 fruit and vegetable scents.” There is an essay on developing and expanding vocabulary of scent, which has clear relevance to any similar discussion for a vocabulary of flavor. And a spread on basil makes it clear that humans have long used it for more than culinary purposes.

Handsomely designed with full color throughout. Paperback. This issue is in French only.
