Preface by Luca Turin.
This volume by scent and perfume connoisseur Kashina is a singular production. A daily diary, an index, an impossible project intent on translating or cataloguing or at least leaning towards the experience of synesthesia––the book is a unique and personal experience of someone else’s perfumed world. The pleasure of the text is in its chewy specificity and ambitious psychic leaps––through memory and fantasy and the science of scent––that delight in pushing against the formal implications of a reference text in a subjective, sensual world.
