DSH Perfumes of 2020 Part 2: Tea, Charcoal, Pine and Gum

In our first look at perfumes from DSH Perfumes of 2020, we examined the broad range of works from rooty irises to the paradoxes of Frida Kahlo's artistic output (and her very real life challenges.) In this second investigation, our eyes and noses turn to the contemplative work that has come from Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's studio this year, some of it as a direct reaction to the realities of working ...

"The Answer."

Meade directed my attention to William James Chidley (c.1860 – 21 December 1916) — "an Australian philosopher with unconventional theories on sex, diet and clothing" (Wikipedia): In 1911, Chidley published The Answer in Melbourne.... Chidley sold copies to curious passers-by on the footpath. In 1912, Chidley moved to Sydney, where he became a familiar bearded figure dressed in a Grecian-style tunic and sandals, giving public lectures and wandering the streets, carrying a bundle of his pamphlets....

Queenie author Candice Carty-Williams introduces the top threeExplore the rest of the conversation special with gal-dem As a writer, my main concern is inviting the reader into a world that they might not otherwise know.

The internet's invisible hands: 11 experts explain how our digital world is fueling polarization

Thomas/Getty Images Tech companies built social media networks to connect us and search engines to give us better information about the world, yet Americans are becoming more divided than ever.

Sunday Firesides: You Are Religious

When asked if they are religious, many people today will say they’re not (often adding that they are, nevertheless, spiritual).  This distinctly modern refutation of religiosity makes use of a distinctly modern, and altogether too limited, definition of the word. Religion, as popularly understood today as an allegiance to certain beliefs, creeds, and institutions, did not come into English use until the 17th century. Anciently, the root of the word was used differently, and may have aris...

One Browser Tab Only

It scares me when people tell me they have 10+ web browser tabs regularly open at the same time. For some it’s well into the dozens. This isn’t intelligent behavior; it will have a negative impact on your mental functioning if you make this a habit. How is it possible to have 10+ browser tabs open regularly and not have some part of you crying out to learn single-handling? You probably don’t even see how distracted your mind is while doing this. If you’ve been doing this long enough, it ma...

Jamie Cullum: ‘I channel a lot of emotional intensity into my music'

The musician, 41, on what he owes Michael Parkinson, the joys of cultural freedom and why he’ll feel nervous when he’s finally able to perform againGrowing up in a very provincial village near Swindon, in Wiltshire, I struggled to articulate why my family was different. My parents were immigrants. They had it drilled into them to be as British as possible, live a very British life, observe the Britishness of their existence. I think they were culturally cauterised. A mixture of people came in an...

Chicken pulao and an orange and piquillo pepper salad: Nik Sharma's Christmas recipes

The perfect combination: spicy chicken jewelled with cranberries and cashews, and a sharp fruity sideThe simplicity and elegance of pulaos combined with their ability to moonlight as a one-pot meal stole my heart long ago. Pulaos saved my mother and grandmother hours in the kitchen; they’d make a large pot and all that was needed was a salad or pickle on the side. I’m keeping that principle in mind with this winter-themed chicken pulao, jewelled with cranberries and cashews, alongside an orange ...

Why India’s 36 all out was a one-dimensional effort in the field of collapses

If you’ve ever seen The Perfect Storm, you’ll know that quite a lot of things go wrong in it. The Perfect Storm is a film about fishing, starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and quite a few other people you know. At one point Wahlberg is bitten by a shark. A bit later John C Reilly is hooked and dragged into the sea. And then the bad weather arrives. The bad weather in The Perfect Storm is, as you’d imagine, quite a few steps beyond ‘persistent drizzle’. Clooney and his me...

Ex tenebris lux…   What are those "storyteller scents" you sometimes hear about. How do they do that? And who do they tell their stories to? How can that possibly be, since fragrances have no mouths? It is certainly not the scent that tells stories. The stories are told by - surprise, surprise - our mind. A scent is just a trigger or, even, a bullet that pierces your skull. Everything else is...

‘I was running to adventure – and away from myself’ | Jami Attenberg

For 20 years, I was on the run across the US, but it’s only recently that I have realised what I was running from, writes the novelist Jami AttenbergIf I tell you I didn’t have a bed frame until I was 44 years old, can we all pretend I was a minimalist and not some odd bird flapping her wings all over the country? “Peripatetic” was a word I learned when I was in my early 20s – I remember looking it up after reading it somewhere, and thinking: “That sounds familiar.” I grew up in a small town in ...

Tim Dowling: My thighs are burning. Am I ready for couples' pilates?

I should be able to slack off while my wife claims the instructor’s attentionMy ideal morning workout routine goes something like this: I turn up at the gym at about 7am, drag a mat from the stack and begin some preliminary stretching; at about 7.06am I get a text from the trainer I’ve booked, telling me that he has a domestic emergency and won’t be able to make it, whereupon I ease into a standing position and punch the air while no one is looking. Then I go home and get into the bath.In over a...
