Chandler Burr an author and columnist for the New York Times, was interviewed. He wrote a book about Luca Turin a scientist whose obsession with perfume lead him on a quest to collect perfume from around the world. This insatiable passion guided him to develop a scientific theory about how humans can smell (olfactory processing). The Nobel Prize might be awarded to this passionate scientist in the future. The book is called The Emperor of Scent: A Story of Obsession, Perfume, and the Last Mystery of the Senses. This was a fascinating and entertaining interview, that you can hear on NPR (archives).
Well, I won’t be winning the Nobel Prize, but I did start this little site, and people are finding it. One of my first goals was to get people to the site through Google search. The 300-plus people who have found me so far are not related to me. However, they have an interest in music or the musicians I write about. I will conclude by saying, HANG IN THERE.
