A few words about ODOU

ODOU is a bi-annual, printed magazine that explores smell and perfume through themes of memory, science, art, design, personal reflections, photography and much more by an international team of contributors. Started in 2013 by Designer Liam Moore, it has sold over 600 copies across three issues via an online, on-demand printing service. Copies have been sold in the likes of UK, US, Canada, Sweden and New Zealand. Articles in ODOU can range from interviews, personal essays, poetry and photography series all inspired by smell and perfume. You won't find articles about the latest trend, must-have celebrity scent, or even top-tips running down the inside fold. It is much more exploratory, curious and revealing magazine. It's aim is to awaken your interest in your olfactory surroundings, to stop and smell the roses.

In early 2014, three articles in issue one were nominated for a Jasmine Award – a respected fragrance industry award that honours writing in the field. The lead article won the coveted Literary Award and the judges commented that the article "completely fulfilled the literary aspect and was beautifully written". And just this year, six articles from issues two and three were nominated for Jasmine Awards in multiple categories.

Who's Liam Moore?

Liam is a creative web and digital designer from Northern Ireland living and working in London, UK.

In 2010, fresh out of Postgraduate study, he began his career for an award-winning design and branding agency in Dublin. Since then he has gone on to work for a variety of clients in London from tech startups to a large national retailers.

Having been encouraged to read Patrick Süskind's Perfume at university, he discovered the world of perfume. Since then he has went on to start a blog to craft his writing and meet up (and occasionally) help out in the many olfactory events happening around London.

In early 2013, uninspired by the lack of reading material about smell, he thought then would be a good time to start one himself.

He's the founder, editor and designer of ODOU.
