  1. Memories Matter: Understanding The Power Of Scent

    Most people buy perfume because it smells good. Or, I should say, they buy it because they think it will help them to smell good. The right perfume certainly can do that, but it can do much more.

    I'm going to share two memories that helped me understand the power of scent. They're complete opposites, and yet not.

    The first memory is of my father, who passed away when I was still a little boy. When anyone dies, there’s a period of shock that lasts for days if not ...

  3. Occpational Scent

    After moving in the east side of Tokyo, I've noticed a weird phenomenon in the neighborhood. When walking on a street or shopping etc, the heavy sweet scent suddenly comes out.

  5. Looking for the smell of the old leather-bound book 2

    Afterwards, I got the idea that the smell of the old book was caused by the marbling paper flavored with Myrrh. And soon, I had an urge to get L'eau Trois (Diptyque) said to be smell of Myrrh. I had no idea about scent of Myrrh essence either L'eau Trois at that time.

    I bought it via internet from us, 'cause it wasn't to be found any stores either web shops in Japan, and I got it at last.

    Well, L'eau Trois, I love the aroma, but the smell is like bay leaf (laurel) ...
