Perfume – The Art and Craft of Perfume

Perfume – The Art and Craft of Perfume, by Karen Gilbert.  Karen Gilbert is one of the British perfumers who runs occasional fragrance-making courses for The Perfume Society.  (She worked for fragrance house IFF, and also at Neal’s Yard Remedies, after pursuing her passion for aromatherapy.)  And here’s her at-home, how-to introduction to creating your own unique perfume.  It looks at the psychology and classification of fragrances, talks about layering – and delves into the distinctions between natural and synthetic fragrances, before sharing the easy-to-follow secrets of blending at home.  (With all the requisite safety info, too.)
