NEZ Issue #06 Body and Mind (English)
Published bi-annually, Nez explores the world around us via our sense of smell. It provides an insight into the vital role that olfactory sensations play in our lives in a novel approach that encompasses art, literature, science, history, food and perfume.
The sixth edition of Nez explores the affinity between the nose, the body and the mind through the prism of history, medicine, research, religion and psychoanalysis. Could sniffing fragrance be a remedy for depression or pain, or even life-prolonging? Smelling is pleasurable, without doubt, but can it also be a cure?
