A Code in the Nose

Language: English

This film follows the development of a radical theory to decipher the language of smell by biophysicist Luca Turin. He believes that it is the vibrational frequency, not the shape, of the molecules that excites the sense of smell. If proved right, his ideas could transform the perfume and food industries and bring about a new generation of pollution detectors.
