Book Description :

This lively, accessible book is the first to explore Victorian literature through scent and perfume, presenting an extensive range of well-known and unfamiliar texts in intriguing and imaginative new ways that make us re-think literature's relation with the senses. Concentrating on aesthetic and decadent authors, Scents and Sensibility introduces a rich selection of poems, essays, and fiction, exploring these texts with reference to both the little-known cultural history of perfume use and the appreciation of natural fragrance in Victorian Britain. It shows how scent and perfume are used to convey not merely moods and atmospheres but the nuances of the aesthete or decadent's carefully cultivated identity, personality, or sensibility. A key theme is the emergence of the olfactif, the cultivated individual with a refined sense of smell, influentially represented by the poet and critic Algernon Charles Swinburne, who is emulated by a host of canonical and less well-known aesthetic and decadent successors such as Walter Pater, Edmund Gosse, John Addington Symonds, Lafcadio Hearn, Michael Field, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Symons, Mark André Raffalovich, Theodore Wratislaw, and A. Mary F. Robinson. This book explores how scent and perfume pervade the work of these authors in many different ways, signifying such diverse things as style, atmosphere, influence, sexuality, sensibility, spirituality, refinement, individuality, the expression of love and poetic creativity, and the aura of personality, dandyism, modernity, and memory. A coda explores the contrasting twentieth-century responses of Virginia Woolf and Compton Mackenzie to the scent of Victorian literature.

Book Description :

One of these days, Kai was going to write anonymous love letters in black envelopes, and leave them around the brick and border city, without any hint. One day. One. Brilliant. Day. At least this is what Kai thought, before she walked into Scents & Sensibility, a bath salts & candles shop with a conjoined spa and sweat lodge of premium oils, muds, and confusing concoctions. A store which, aside scented candles, had nothing to do with Kai. Who predominantly wore all black, with a leather hooded jacket, v neck, and skinny jeans, and kept to the shadows of night. But that’s not to say Kai couldn’t enjoy candles, or other things, like the more sunny looking customers. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px 'Hoefler Text'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-indent: 36.0px; font: 13.0px 'Hoefler Text'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}

Book Description :

Aromas offer many advantages over traditional methods of manipulating emotion and influencing behavior, especially in the context of studying the mechanisms of decision-making. Many of the brain areas that are activated when perceiving aromas are also known to be involved in emotion, judgment, and decision-making. Pleasantness in particular has been highlighted as an important dimension of olfaction that influences affect and behavior. However, given the richness and diversity of aroma types and qualities, other qualities of aroma percepts likely influence decision processes as well. The goals of this dissertation were 1) to assess the practicality of using aromas as affective stimuli, 2) to expand work on the dimensionality and structure of olfactory space beyond pleasantness, and 3) to determine mechanisms by which aroma-induced affect can influence decisions. To this end, I first gathered ratings along two dimensions commonly used in affective science, pleasantness and intensity, and found that aromas are organized on the affective circumplex along two main axes corresponding to approach and avoidance tendencies. The reliability of the affective properties of aromas across time and between individuals was found to be high. This result confirmed that aromas are useful as affect induction tools for research, and I report affective ratings for a collection of aromas. In the second study, a dimensionality reduction approach was used to discover dimensions that contribute to perceived aroma pleasantness. Finally, using aromas identified in the first study to elicit affective responses, I tested influences of pleasantness and intensity on decision-making, focusing on decisions involving risk and ambiguity. We found that aroma-induced valence and arousal were able to influence risk-aversion, and the effect of aroma intensity was mediated by activity in the anterior insula. Overall, I demonstrate that aromas are potent affect-inducing stimuli that give rise to multi-dimensional percepts, with correspondingly diverse effects on decision-making.

Book Description :

Although the arts of incense and perfume making are among the oldest of human cultural practices, it is only in the last two decades that the use of odors in the creation of art has begun to attract attention under the rubrics of 'olfactory art' or 'scent art.' Contemporary olfactory art ranges from gallery and museum installations and the use of scents in music, film, and drama, to the ambient scenting of stores and the use of scents in cuisine. All these practices raise aesthetic and ethical issues, but there is a long-standing philosophical tradition, most notably articulated in the work of Kant and Hegel, which argues that the sense of smell lacks the cognitive capacity to be a vehicle for either serious art or reflective aesthetic experience. This neglect and denigration of the aesthetic potential of smell was further reinforced by Darwin's and Freud's views of the human sense of smell as a near useless evolutionary vestige. Smell has thus been widely neglected within the philosophy of art. Larry Shiner's wide-ranging book counters this tendency, aiming to reinvigorate an interest in smell as an aesthetic experience. He begins by countering the classic arguments against the aesthetic potential of smell with both philosophical arguments and evidence from neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, history, linguistics, and literature. He then draws on this empirical evidence to explore the range of aesthetic issues that arise in each of the major areas of the olfactory arts, whether those issues arise from the use of scents with theater and music, sculpture and installation, architecture and urban design, or avant-garde cuisine. Shiner gives special attention to the art status of perfumes and to the ethical issues that arise from scenting the body, the ambient scenting of buildings, and the use of scents in fast food. Shiner's book provides both philosophers and other academic readers with not only a comprehensive overview of the aesthetic issues raised by the emergence of the olfactory arts, but also shows the way forward for further studies of the aesthetics of smell.
