“This Is Your Brain On Vetiver”

“This Is Your Brain On Vetiver”

The “Perfumed Plume” awards finalists for excellence in fragrance journalism have been announced, and one of them is this article, which I did not read when it was first published in the December 2017 issue of Elle magazine, but read last week when I was on vacation!  I love the title: This Is Your Brain On Vetiver. Much of the article is devoted to explaining the synesthesia that many perfume creators apparently experience. Fascinating!

If you’d like to know more about recent research into scent/color synesthesia, here is an excellent article.
