Last Minute Gift Ideas

 

Still looking for Christmas gifts? Here are a few ideas.

What the nose knows: The science of smell in everyday life. The perfect book for your nerdy nephew, your brainy niece who’s into perfume, or your foodie friend at the office. If you live in the U.S. there’s still time to send a paperback copy. Or you can send them a Kindle edition to arrive whenever you like.

One or both of the Nick Zollicker stories. Set in Berkeley, California, An Imperfect Mimic finds scent scientist Nick using his fragrance know-how to derail a romantic rival. Smothering the Savage takes place in New York City as Nick is hired to save a fragrance company when its star perfumer goes a bit bonkers. Give these inexpensive stocking stuffers so your friends have something to read after a big Christmas dinner while lounging in their new sweaters in front of the fire. Or send them to your relatives now to keep them amused on the flight out.
