The New York Scratch ‘N Sniff Times

Move over, movie critics. Edit your articles tighter, book reviewers. The New York Times needs the space now that it has its first perfume critic. Chandler Burr, who had to be given the job with a name like that, is writing “Scent Strip,” in which he’ll be reviewing old and new fragrances and perfumed candles. Honestly. In the premier column Sunday, he opened by saying, “Darkness, when it is crystalline and somewhat luminous, may be the most difficult quality to capture in a perfume.” and goes on to say that “Jo Malone‚Äôs perfume genius, by contrast, is light. Not light as in the antonym of heavy, but light as in photon radiation.” Pass the English Leather, please.
