Summary

The Empire of Scents poetically captures the profound impact smell has on our memory, emotions and our interaction with each other. From Turkish Saffron farmers to secretive Italian truffle hunters The Empire of Scents 2014 interviews a range of participants on their olfactory experience including chefs, perfumers and a writer who found losing her sense of smell changed her entire world.  Astronaut Chris Hadfield describes the smell of space, a chef speaks of his desire to capture the fragrance of the sea that reminds him of his childhood and sommelier François Chartier, a pioneering researcher in food and wine harmonies, discusses the sound of flavours.
