Is there Something New about Perfume and Wine?
In Japan we drink sake occasionaly with a cup that is made of fragrant wood called Hinoki. It smells similar to Cedar. Alcohol property of sake carries the volatile fragrant moleculues of the wooden cup. As a result, you can both smell and taste Hinoki. It seems to me as if I'm enjoying a perfume when drinking sake.
Choosing wine is always a difficult job for me, because it's more about creating a [world] or [experience] around a table than just choosing a right one that matces a dish. The same as perfume. It's more about composing a situation of what and how other people feel and experience when they are are around me.
Once you zoom out like this, you would notice that you are a script writer or a composer for a moment when you are selecting wine or perfume. There are a lot of possibilities open in my perspective. I hope more and more interesting experiments to be done.
