In the movie ‘Perfume’ the main character 'Jean-Baptiste Grenouille' possesses an amazing talent for distinguishing scent. His ability is both a blessing and a curse as he becomes obsessed with creating the best perfume the world has ever known. His overwhelming desire drives him to the point of murder as he attempts to distill the very essence of beauty. Needless to say things didn’t end well for him or the poor women he preys upon.

Some of us have a fetish for food, music, wood, raw meat, the smell of grass, - what ever floats your boat as far as I'm concerned but for me - it's fashion. Self-expression through visual aids th
In a recent piece for Cosmo they asked me a question that got me pondering... Q. “Have you ever become attached to a client?” A. “Not often, but occasionally it can happen.
