“The smell of truffle reminds us of what we have in common with other desiring creatures. <…> A fine meal or elegant perfume both recalls and refines our animal and vegetable nature. Smell, the chemical communication, is uncanny because it reminds us what we have in common with pigs — and with mushrooms.”
