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.
A beekeeper leads us through the scents of a healthy hive and good honey. Love it or loathe it, lavender is as common in the world of perfumery as it is in some kitchens. And given perfume’s birth in the smoke of incense and dependence on alcohol, the link to addiction and the satisfactions of indulgent transgression tie it tightly to the world of food and drink.
Handsomely designed with full color throughout. Paperback. This issue is in English only.
