    Default Summer reading

    I'm planning on reading Luca Turin's "The Secret of Scent: Adventures in Perfume and the Science of Smell" this summer. While online bookstore browsing, I ran across this:
    "The Smell Culture Reader", Jim Drobnick, published a year ago now.

    Has anyone read it? Is it too technical, or is it fascinating natural history culture etc that's fun to read?

    Any other new books for the summer?

    Hi Benjamin,

    The Smell Culture Reader is a really cool anthology if you're interested in the social and cultural aspects of smell. It has 39 (new) perfume reviews by Luca Turin, and a great excerpt from Richard Stamelman's book "Perfume", but most articles are not specifically about perfume. You'll be able to read my full review of this book on NowSmellThis somewhere this weekend (not sure when exactly it will be uploaded).

    best,
    Marcello

    christopher Brosius has a book coming out in July, Scent: Mysteries of Perfume and the Smell of Happiness. I'm a huge fan of his work, and he told us a little about this last summer. I think it should be interesting, to say the least.
