“The Empire of Scents.” shows, that there is more truth in calling our sense of smell our sense of desire, because it springs from our passions. Smell moves us, subliminally and profoundly. It moves us to act and do things we are wholly unaware of. It enriches our lives, gives us unspeakable joys. The pleasures of food, of the erotic, of family – form the very fabric of our emotional lives. And smell is an essential emotional trigger. Therefore: our sense of smell is our sense of desire.

Empire of Scents/Kim Nguyens/
The pleasures of food, of the erotic, of family – form the very fabric of our emotional lives. And smell is an essential emotional trigger. The Film “” Empire of Scents” shows that it is more truth to call our sense of smell our sense of desire because it springs our passions. Smell moves us, subliminally and profoundly. It moves us to act and do things we are wholly unaware of.
