NPR: Perfume Scents of Subversion (Podcast)

Fabulous NPR report on how perfume scents change  (listen) with the cultural trends and gender shifting roles.

 "Lore has it that in New York there were signs put up at fancy restaurants that said, "Please, no wearers of Passion, Giorgio or Poison," which were the perfumes of the day with huge floral notes, and had great sillage, which means if you walked into a room people would smell you like 45 minutes later."
