One of the pleasures of the season is curling up in front of a crackling fire with a steaming cup of peppermint tea and a good book. Even better if it’s Jean-Claude Ellena’s The Diary of A Nose: A Year in the Life of a Parfumeur. M. Ellena, the exclusive perfumer for Hermès since 2004, shares the process of fragrance creation from germination to marketing, in journal format. It’s a rare glimpse into the mind of a master perfumer, and an inspired read for the fragrance enthusiast.
