ON 25 March an unusually strange event occurred in St. Petersburg. For
that morning Barber Ivan Yakovlevitch, a dweller on the Vozkresensky
Prospekt (his name is lost now--it no longer figures on a signboard bearing a
portrait of a gentleman with a soaped cheek, and the words: 'Also, Blood Let
Here')--for that morning Barber Ivan Yakovlevitch awoke early, and caught
the smell of newly baked bread. Raising himself a little, he perceived his wife

(a most respectable dame, and one especially fond of coffee) to be just in the
act of drawing newly baked rolls from the oven.
'Prascovia Osipovna,' he said, 'I would rather not have any coffee for
breakfast, but, instead, a hot roll and an onion,'--the truth being that he
wanted both but knew it to be useless to ask for two things at once, as
Prascovia Osipovna did not fancy such tricks.
'Oh, the fool shall have his bread,' the dame reflected. 'So much the better
for me then, as I shall be able to drink a second lot of coffee.'
And duly she threw on to the table a roll.
Ivan Yakovlevitch donned a jacket over his shirt for politeness' sake, and,
seating himself at the table, poured out salt, got a couple of onions ready,
took a knife into his hand, assumed an air of importance, and cut the roll
asunder. Then he glanced into the roll's middle. To his intense surprise he
saw something glimmering there. He probed it cautiously with the knife--
then poked at it with a finger.
'Quite solid it is!' he muttered. 'What in the world is it likely to be?'
He thrust in, this time, all his fingers, and pulled forth--a nose! His hands
dropped to his sides for a moment. Then he rubbed his eyes hard. Then
again he probed the thing. A nose! Sheerly a nose! Yes, and one familiar to
him, somehow! Oh, horror spread upon his feature! Yet that horror was a
trifle compared with his spouse's overmastering wrath.
'You brute!' she shouted frantically. 'Where have you cut off that nose? You
villain, you! You drunkard! Why, I'll go and report you to the police myself.
The brigand, you! Three customers have told me already about your pulling
at their noses as you shaved them till they could hardly stand it.'
But Ivan Yakovlevitch was neither alive nor dead. This was the more the
case because, sure enough, he had recognised the nose. It was the nose of
Collegiate Assessor Kovalev--no less: it was the nose of a gentleman whom
he was accustomed to shave twice weekly, on each Wednesday and each

What is day to day life like for a perfume-maker? How does the creation of a new scent begin? How do you capture the essence of a smell on the skin? For one year, Jean-Claude Ellena kept a diary of his life as 'parfumeur exclusif' ('le nez' or 'the nose') for Hermès. Believing that creating a scent is like creating a work of art, and describing himself as a writer using 'olfactory colours', he explains how all of the five senses come into play when creating a perfume. He also reveals how inspiration can come from a market stall, a landscape, or even the movement of calligraphy, and concludes this charming, perceptive diary with recipes for natural fragrances, each made up of three synthetic ingredients, to create the illusion of smells like freesia, orange blossom, grapefruit, pear, chocolate, cashew and cotton candy. This is the story of a quest to capture what is most elusive. Jean-Claude Ellena offer readers a rare insight into the secrets of his business, his art, and his life as one of the world's most important and admired perfumers.
