When it comes to understanding and articulating the high art form of fragrance, Chandler Burr is unrivaled. With the announcement of his post as the first-ever New York Times fragrance critic, Burr said, “The creation of fragrance is one of the highest art forms crafted for the senses, the equal of painting for sight and music for hearing.” Burr uses his rich historical, cultural, scientific, and economic knowledge of scent to give the readers of his “Scent Notes” column nuanced, witty insights that go far beyond the perfume counter.
