Kate Grenville Interview: Why Perfumes Are Making You Sick

Kate Grenville interview: why perfumes are making you sick
The Australian author Kate Grenville was on a book tour for her 2015 novel One Life when she started noticing the headaches. “I was having them virtually every day,” she says. “From hotels I was staying in, taxis and planes I was riding in, and also from my readers – unfortunately. I love [them], but when they wear fragrance and want to give me a hug, it can be a problem.”
Grenville began looking into the reaction she was having and was startled to find how common it was. She will be speaking at Adelaide writers’ week this month to discuss the book that came out of her experience: The Case Against Fragrance. If you’re attending, she has one plea: don’t douse yourself.
