Iím reading Perfume at the moment Itís about a murderer with an amazing sense of smell. His hobby (apart from killing of course) is sniffing, and he can deconstruct smells into individual threads of scent, like atoms, and he gets all these amazing emotions from scents, which lead him to kill people (I think - Iíve only just started it). Anyway, it got me sniffing stuff, and thinking about how amazing smell is; it has the power to be alluring, repulsive, bring back memories, emotionsÖ Morocco smelt of spices, raw and cooked meat and petrol. China smelt of soy sauce.
