Ceci n'est pas un parfum
Some perfumers have fought all their lives to get their work recognized as art. Others, on the contrary, place themselves at the service of a lucrative business. How should we approach this composite thing called perfume, the fruit of the minds of those who create it and a fantasized projection of those who crave it? We examine the issue from philosophical, aesthetic, historical, legal and, of course, artistic viewpoints – for the world of art, most often intended for our eyes and ears only, is also becoming enamored with the emotional power of smell.
