SMELLS spur memories…pamper and indulge us…warn us of danger…lead us into temptation…accompany us to heaven…steep us in luxury…whilst stirring the cauldron of our seductiveness.

SMELL is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived…odours, instantaneous and fleeting, causing our heart to dilate joyously or contract with remembered grief.

D. Ackerman (1990) ‘A Natural History of the Senses’
