The subtitle says it all "A story of perfume, obsession and the last mystery of the senses". This reads like a novel. Fascinating characters and lots of interesting speculation and evidence to the way we smell, make this riveting reading. This would make a great film or subject for "NOVA". ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
