The Smell Of Half A Century - Doctor Who Discovers Perfume On The Programme's 50th Anniversary

Geek Alert: this could be the nerdiest piece I've ever written!

Doctor Who, the world's longest-running sci-fi TV series, is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary... which means that all of us list-loving, scent-worshipping, Dalek-fearing aficionados have an opportunity to indulge in that most indulgent, navel-gazing of activities: dreaming up a Universe in which the TARDIS crosses paths with a perfume's sillage. The result of my own, adolescent fan-boy musings is a Basenotes piece which pairs a different scent with each incarnation of our favourite Gallifreyan. What's more, it features superb, must-see artwork by Grant Osborne and Alan Hindle. Please click here to be taken to it.

Here endeth the Geek Alert.


PS Please click here to enter a competition for a full bottle of perfume from Etat Libre D'Orange. And please be sure to come back tomorrow for my Christmas 2013 gift recommendations.
