    I have read Turin’s book twice as well as Burr’s book about his theory. I am glad you posted this article as I will book mark it and read when I am awake and can fully focus on it. Both the books required full attention and no radio in the background as I read. They left me hoping for Mr. Turin’s theory though. I love learning the science angle of perfumes. Again, Thanks for the post

      The science is over my head…I’m just waiting for them to finally decide which it is, shape or vibration :-)

    Time to call my pops. I need some help understanding this one, I won’t lie!

    He got his doctorate in organic chem, so I’m fascinated to hear his take on this. While I was growing up he’d offer his opinion of the day’s fragrance as I walked by while getting ready. His ‘opinion’ would consist of one of two phrases, either “That one.” or “No, not that one.” When my mom and I finally asked him if he could be more specific about what he liked because she was searching for a new perfume(and I was on the other side of the country), he explained if it contained any chemical he’d smelled in his lab it was a “No, not that one.”

    God, I love him. This inquiry will tickle him no end – hope I can follow along to the conclusion, lol!

      Sorry for the late reply, missed this one somehow. But hope your pops explained it, & maybe some day he could call and explain it to me :-)
