I am always fascinated by the way writers and other creative artists approach perfume, odours and the sense of smell. I'm intrigued by how they celebrate the olfactory mystery, weaving it into various aspects of their creations.
"Sillage" in French, the word means the cleft water and foaming ripples that mark the wake of a ship. There's a clue in that, for by the English it is used almost exclusively to mean the waft of perfume left by the presence or passage of a wearer.
There can be no doubt of it: green scents are back – and leading the pack. Indeed, contrary to rumour, they never went away but merely sank back like fainting dryads into the groves and thickets, while more ostentatious fragrances filled the air.
