    Default Found: Complete Onlive Archive of Luca Turin's "Duftnotes"

    For fellow fans of Dr. Turin's "Duftnotes":

    If you ever only read the 2005-6 articles (the defunct pdf, or on Scribd.com), or
    If you enjoyed the 2009-10 articles that were linked to in previous threads by Narcus,
    And, like me, never bothered digging through the NZZ Folio website for more,
    Then rejoice, for...

    A complete archive from 2003-2010 can be read online on this blog.

    Whoever created the blog, where ever you are: thank you, thank you, thank you! It's a real treat.

    Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!

    Thanks for the link. I've read them all before but I always like reading them again.

    Aristotle said the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor, and Luca Turin has mastered metaphor as well as any writer ever has.

    And thank you for sharing this, fellow fan! For more than one reason you have just turned a dull October sky into something enjoyable! I have to also express gratitude to you, "CM", author of the Double Base Notes blog. This job may have cost some of your time, I suppose! I myself had started something similar on the German (printed) version of Scent Notes.

    Then, on September 7th, we were extremely pleased to hear directly from the author:

This would a) spare the reader the trouble of shuffling through NZZ webpages and b) remind me of what I have written, since I am getting to that dreaded age when one is never sure of repeating oneself :-) The only downside is that this may discourage a publisher from making a little book. I'm still thinking this one through, will let you know asap.

    Mr. Turin,

    It is very nice to know that you check on us once in a while. This collection of writings has made many Basenoters very happy. Looking forward to read more from you in the future, perhaps more reviews?

    Thank you arwen_elf, and thank you all for your kind comments. Truth is I've stopped writing about fragrance, though I made an exception with the Little Book which was fun, esp. the marvellous Osmothèque classics. Never say never, but I think I have written myself out on the subject after the Guide[s] and the Duftnotes. I am still happily writing for NZZ but "off topic". Also I am back in full-time science and that takes up a lot of thinking room. And I confess that Tania and I are disheartened by the funereal prospect of re-smelling all the great fragrances that have been destroyed by reformulation. Updating the big guide would be soul-destroying. Maybe if a few hundred great new perfumes appear we'll change our minds.

    Here's a link for the text of the 7 month period ( June 2005- Jan 2006 ) of Duffnotes mentioned in the OP. Unlike the link above, this one includes all the reader comments and Turin's responses. The inclusion of which makes the thing "only" 548 pages long ! One can understand why the full run of posts shown above leaves out the comments.

    For those who are gluttons for punishment, or simply Turin fans, this link also includes a search function in a toolbar at the bottom of the page.
