The world of cinema probably takes up as much of my thinking time as the world of scent. Although the former is primarily visual and auditory, it can be rewarding to consider it in terms of olfactory sensations. Did the director try to convey any particular odours to the audience? Is there anything about the lighting, the editing, the set design which is especially pungent? How would certain characters smell if they could step out of the screen and sit down next to us? The results of such musings sometimes make it into my Cinema Scent reviews, an index of which you'll find below.
