“Smells are surer than sounds or sights to make your heartstrings crack.”
− Rudyard Kipling

We breathe and we smell.
Smells cannot be recorded precisely with words or simple equipment.
Only the memories belonging to the flavour strike unexpectedly.
Like the sweetness and sourness of life and death, they always just creep in.
It is an inevitable law of nature.

 

「氣味比聲音或影像更能震撼人心。」 —— Rudyard Kipling

呼吸便能聞到氣味,
但它既不能用文字準確形容,
也不能用簡單的設備完整保存,
只有屬於那氣味的記憶會突然來襲,
就像生老病死中的甜酸苦辣,
總是不經意的入侵生活。
這是一個不可避免的自然定律。
