It’s summer. Summer is when you lot go on holiday right? It’s finally warm so why wouldn’t choose now to fly somewhere that is probably hot most of the year anyway?

        Fun article, Callum.

        For me, the three films that I really adore already had a scent...

        Jaws - Vintage Old Spice

        A Streetcar Named Desire - Knize Ten

        The Talented Mr. Ripley - Acqua di Parma Colonia

        My scent association is personal, but what I believe not only relates one to the films' characters, but the times & settings. It is rather amazing to watch the films while wearing these scents...beyond 3-D, it is olfactory extension of what you see & hear.

        Delightful article! I really enjoyed reading this.

        I imagine Grease (1978) smelling of Faberge's Babe. Wait... perhaps I'm thinking of the audience. :)

        Happy summer viewing!

        "nothing say ‘MAN’ like Tom Selleck on a car in a stetson holding some wood."

        That made me spit my tea!... Brilliant!

        Great article! That was really fun to read. I was hoping you'd add "Endless Summer" to your list if you do a sequel.
