The smell of a person’s body is the body itself which we breathe in through our nose and mouth.

Which we suddenly possess as though it were the body’s most secret substance and, in short, its nature.

The smell which is in me is the fusion of the other person’s body with my body.

But it is the other’s body with the flesh removed, a vaporized body which has remained completely itself, but which has become a volatile spirit.

- Jean-Paul Sartre, Baudelaire, 1947

« I sing of smells, of scents, perfumes, odours, whiffs and niffs; of aromas, bouquets and fragrances.

And also, though temperately and restrainedly I promise you, of effluvia, reeks, foetors, stenches, and stinks ».
