There is Jicky (1889), unisex coeval of the Eiffel Tower and 'a towering masterpiece'; Chanel's No. 5 (1921), perhaps the world's most famous perfume, 'stretching deliciously like a sleepy panther'; Knize Ten which 'everyone should own because there

Perfume critic and collector, Turin Luca, a Biophysicist at University College London, has proposed a new theory about how we smell. His theory might have a powerful impact on the medical profession. He travels to Paris to meet perfumer and chemist Maurice Roucel who breaks fragrances down to their individual molecules. What gives a molecule its odour is, as yet, unknown. Chemist Charles Cell describes why it is so difficult to read the molecular structure of smells. Luca's new theory followed on from the research of John Amoore who discovered that most people can't smell at least one odour. He realised that this was due to the fact that receptors were missing inside the nose, meaning that they couldn't detect the shape of certain molecules. But Luca's research took this further and he started to study smell as being related to vibrations, that the nose detects vibrations

Is smell a quantum phenomenon? by Luca Turin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Our sense of smell is extraordinarily good at molecular recognition: we can identify tens of thousands of odorants unerringly over a wide concentration range. The mechanism by which this happens is still hotly debated. One view is that molecular shape governs smell, but this notion has turned out to have very little predictive power. Some years ago I revived a discredited theory that posits instead that the nose is a vibrational spectroscope, and proposed a possible underlying mechanism in elastic electron tunneling. In my talk, I will review the history and salient facts of this problem and describe some recent experiments that go some way towards settling the question.
