Quotes on fragrance
Perfume is a disguise. Since the Middle Ages, we have worn masks of fruit and flowers in order to conceal from ourselves the meaty essence of our humanity. We appreciate the sexual attractant of the rose, the ripeness of the orange, more than we honour our own ripe carnality. Tom Robbins, author
Perfume is born of both pleasure and pain. It envelops the neck and reaches deep into the heart of recollection without notice. Marion Bendeth, global fragrance expert
Odours have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odour cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.
Patrick Süskind, author Every man gives off a scent and that scent tells you how to act before your head does. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author
