Selected quotes

It’s a bit like learning how to communicate, you learn thousands of words and expressions, but you only use a few of them when you need to express a feeling. You always need to refer to your memory, where all scents and smells have a name such as ‘ethyl alcohol, cis 3 hexenol, citronellyle acetate” … It’s a never ending process of artistic chemistry, precision and feeling and at the end of the day…you never know. — From "The Scent of Love" at East & West (link no longer active, sorry).
