Smell of Paris

More than its glorious flowers, the Marché aux fleurs smells like pensiveness. A freezing Sunday spent looking for flowers for a new apartment. That’s just a small part of the Smell Map of Paris by Kate McLean.

With over 24,000 chances a day to smell something new, it’s rather amazing how seldom we stop to breathe it in. Focus. Remember the moment and capture it forever. And when it eventually starts to fade, at least the scents that we associate with that moment will continue to remind us of what has passed.
