"The New York Times Style Magazine broadens its beauty coverage, the 14-times-a-year supplement has signed its first regular critic. Chandler Burr, author of the book, "The Emperor of Scent: A True Story of Perfume and Obsession," will pen a regular column, "Scent Strip," beginning with the Aug. 27 women's fashion issue. Burr has been a contributor to the magazine for the past year and also has written about fragrance for Food + Wine and The New Yorker. T editor Stefano Tonchi said Burr brings a unique intelligence to the topic: "He deals with the world of fragrances in a way that no one else has done before by contextualizing the historical roots and social implications."Isn't that a little overstated Mr. Tonchi? All the perfume historians I read do that...perhaps a little brushing up on the literature is required for the editor?
