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 third issue tackles a vast and enigmatic subject – the Sex of Scent. The olfactory conventions that lend gender to our fragrances – where do they come from? What links the olfactory sphere to sexuality, desire and attraction?
