“Perfume is a language whose speech is worth learning and unpacking as one would a poem, book, or film. Scent is a path to getting closer to our senses, to instinct, and to our bodies and the earth at a time when those attachments are threatened.”

—Barbara Herman in her wonderful book Scent & Subversion: Decoding a Century of Provocative Perfume
