On Perfume

Perfume

 

My fascination with perfume - or scents more generally - probably began in suburban teenagehood. My then girlfriend wore Smitty, and I proudly sported Blue Stratos (which trumped my second choice, Old Spice, and was streets ahead of Brut, "fashionable" at the time).

Fast forward the best part of 30 years and a family trip to the perfume museum in Grasse, where the fragrant air, even in the streets outside, and the fabulous design on show inside hooked me once again.

Next was picking up a copy of The Emperor of Scent and trying to understand the scientific processes behind the olfactory genius that is Luca Turin.

In late 2016 came my first attempts at creating perfume myself, taught by the inspiring Sarah McCartney and her kind husband at 4160 Tuesdays.

On how people really live
Dollar Street
Halcyon Impacts 23 January 2018

Dollar Street is a powerful and fascinating site, showing how people really live around the world. Dollar Street is a project from Gapminder, the foundation set up by the late, great Hans Rosling, who died a year ago from pancreatic cancer, aged only 68. He is missed.

 

On Meat

Beef

Our current meat-heavy system of food production seems to many unsustainable, a waste of resources and a source of pollution in the form of pesticides and hormones as well as methane gas from livestock manure.

We spend money we don't have on things we don't need to impress people we don't care about - Tim Jackson, #TEDGlobal 2010
