Chandler Burr is one of the most famous contemporary writers and perfume critics. He is the author of several books on perfumes: The Emperor of Scent dedicated to another great perfume critic and scientist Luca Turin ( I have already written about Luca and his TOP 10 list can be found HERE). Then there is The Perfect Scent where he explores the perfume industry on two locations: New York and Paris. Right now he is working on a book dedicated to the famous House of Dior. His sharp, clever and innovative reviews have been inspiring readers of New York Times for years and pushed them to look and analyze perfumes like they are looking at works of art they most certainly are. He was a curator of an exhibition The Art of Scent dedicated to perfume art in Museum of Arts and Design in New York and he is official and the only curator of olfactive art in the world. This is his TOP 10 perfume list. Marked in blue are my reviews.
