The idea of publishing this book on Perfumes: Art, Science and Technology grew out of the observation that, on the verge of the 1990s, there was really no state-of-the-art compilation of the relevant know-how on which the fragrance industry is based. It was obvious that such a compilation would be well received, not only by perfumers and fragrance chemists, but also by those involved in related trade and marketing or in the development and distribution of consumer products, by researchers from other fields, by students and, finally, by amateurs of perfumes in general. Therefore, we set out to find competent authors who were willing to contribute to the endeavour, and we did not do this unselfishly; on the contrary, we selected a wish-list of specialists who would provide us with new insight and characterize the trends and research priorities determining the future. Thus, we were counting on learning much ourselves in the course of the project. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the reactions to our first letter-and so was Elsevier. We certainly had not expected perfumers who are usually much more 'doers' than 'writers' to react in such an enthusiastic way; especially, the spontaneous affirmative answer from the famous E. Roudnitska created a momentum which contributed significantly to the successful comple tion of this book. But, of course, we should not create the impression that the other authors' chapters are less important, and we thank all of them heartily for their invaluable effort.

'I've long wished perfumery to be taken seriously as an art, and for scent critics to be as fierce as opera critics, and for the wearers of certain "fragrances" to be hissed in public, while others are cheered. This year has brought Perfumes: The Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez, which I breathed in, rather than read, in one delighted gulp.' Hilary Mantel, Guardian Perfumes: The Guide is the culmination of Turin's lifelong obsession and rare scientific flair and Sanchez's stylish and devoted blogging about every scent that she's ever loved and loathed. Together they make a fine and utterly persuasive argument for the unrecognised craft of perfume-making. Perfume writing has certainly never been this honest, compelling or downright entertaining.
The quintessential guide to the one hundred most glorious perfumes in the world. When Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez published Perfumes: The Guide in 2008, it was hailed as "ravishingly entertaining" by John Lanchester in The New Yorker, "witty and knowledgeable" on Style.com, and "provocative and hugely entertaining" by the Times Literary Supplement. The Little Book of Perfumes focuses on just one hundred masterpieces of perfume: ninety-six five-star perfumes from the original book, as well as four "museum" perfumes-legendary scents that are preserved in the Versailles Osmothèque. This stunningly produced petite volume offers lovers of perfume the best of the best-a perfect gift book for anyone looking either for a brilliant fragrance or an intelligent, witty read.

Have you ever sat in a bus, a café, or any other public place where within seconds of sitting you start feeling the need to sneeze or puke due to strong scents exhumed by someone who has either heavily used a synthetic perfume or whose perfume though lightly used scents so strongly as a result of its synthetic nature? It leaves you breathless with itching and sometimes watering eyes. Synthetic perfumes, as opposed to organic perfumes, always do this. They leave no space for fresh air. Justin Timberlake once said: The right scent can make you feel a little more stylish, but it should never eclipse who you are. It should compliment who you are. This statement holds water. Perfumes should make a first impression that speaks about who you are. They should compliment you. Synthetic perfumes do the direct opposite. They announce their presence so strongly that you are overshadowed and fade into the background. Synthetic perfumes can also be risky health-wise as a result of their components which ranges from carcinogenic content to toxic petroleum products. You sure do not want to risk any of these. Scents leave an impression. There, thus, arises a need for perfumes that give scents you would want to keep perceiving as they give a good first impression, pose no threat and perfectly compliment you. Remember, first impressions last for a long time. The answer to this is organic perfumes. Organic perfumes do not only give better scents but are safe. They can easily be made which is why we have compiled a couple of recipes that would aid your creating a scent that suits your personality. As Shakira once said: “A good fragrance should have a certain personality that makes people identify the scent with you.” This is well said. Knowing how to prepare your own organic perfumes will help you take note of combinations that best describe who you are.
Because of their power to elicit specific responses in the body and psyche, perfumes have, through the ages, occupied an important part in ritual. The Magical and Ritual Use of Perfumes shows how scents can become the very “essence of magic,” providing direct access to the emotional centers of the brain and memory.
