My name is Nuri, and I am the weirdo behind Death/Scent. I’m currently the Program Curator for the Scent & Society lecture series at the Institute of Art and Olfaction. I’m also launching a fragrance line and writing a book. I volunteer with my local Chevra Kadisha and advocate for an end to funeral poverty.

My passion for fragrance began on my 8th birthday with a gift set of Love’s perfumes (Rain Scent and Baby Soft are clearly the best of the bunch). Beyond just the scents, I loved the grown-up ritual of putting on my kiddy perfume every morning. It gave me a new way to see, or rather smell, the world and my place in it.

Thus began a long love affair with fragrance, ritual, and the art/science of scent. It was only a matter of time before this aspect of my character merged with my macabre curiosity, and death acceptance advocacy to become D/S.
