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.
Anakin: What was that all about?
Obi-Wan: Well, R2 has been...
Anakin: No loose wire jokes.
Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?
Anakin: He's trying.
Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!
Wonderful find-- thanks!
Cool - thanks!
Thank you for the link!

This is truly delightful! This will occupy hours of my work-time.
This is wonderful! Thanks for posting the link. I had a link to another website but it was super slow.
Oh that is just wonderful ! Thank you sooo much . I loved Luca Turin's blog.
Mr. Turin- if you read this - I am a great fan !
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
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. Luca Turin has mastered metaphor as well as any writer ever has.

Cool! Wouldn't mind a sticky.
Whoa, thank you so much! I've been looking for the full archive!
How does sunshine smell like?
Then, on September 7th, we were extremely pleased to hear directly from the author:

Thanks for finding and posting, a real resource.
This is wonderful, thank you so much. It's getting so late here but I think I have to stay up later than I wanted because I HAVE to start reading the archive!
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.
Fantastic! Thanks for posting...!

I know this is an old thread, but thank you for posting it. I have never visited any of the afementioned blogs, but love Luca Turin and his wit as well as his knowledge. I'll check this out.
Thank you from me too!
Thank you from me three!
Thanks to Bon Vivant and the ones who actually linked us with Mrs. Turin's jolly and sharp thoughts, always accurate and straight to the point, original like nobody else. Is also amazing to read his own post here, what can I say? Thanks to all!
My sarcasm is so evolved it sounds like sincerity.
Thrilled you shared this! Thank you.
Wow! Thank you! Good to know!
So glad to have access to these notes.
Luca is a true wordsmith!
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Bam! Available on KIndle and 233 pages of a killer paperback. Excellent formats. Got both. Goes way beyond all the amazing descriptions and stories of smells and perfumes. Endless brain food, easy to read, and a whole lot of fun.
