What do we actually mean when we say that something smells of fresh paint? What happens when we catch the scent of frying bacon? And what does three o'clock in the morning smell like? Smells give us our sense of place and our sense of flavour; they warn us of danger and give us social messages. But they have other, less obvious uses: they can shape our feelings, reflect our states of mind, and even make us more suspicious, happier or sadder. Unlike any other book before it, The Smell of Fresh Rain opens your mind to this neglected sense to enhance all of your senses - allowing you to appreciate the world anew. Book jacket.
