Nose power

I don't know much about this Daniel Hinkley, and I thought "The Nose" was a frenchman, but I love this from his WSJ magazine article (April 30, 2009):

Garlic Naan

I once stayed in a hotel in Calcutta that was adjacent to a popular bakery that made only naan bread, plain and garlic. They would fire the ovens early in the morning and I would wake up salivating from bread dreams. All of my possessions were infused with the odor. Weeks later, while in the mountains of northern India, I caught the fragrance of garlic naan on a T-shirt. I considered eating it.
