Perfume: The Creation and Allure of Classic Fragrances

Perfume:  The Creation and Allure of Classic Fragrances, by Susan Irvine.  Susan Irvine writes so evocatively about perfume, and was so often winner of the perfume industry’s own literary award, The Jasmine Award, that her writing colleagues almost gave up entering…!  This coffee table book is long out of print, but worth sniffing out on secondhand book sites (where it’s available very inexpensively).  It’s particularly good on natural ingredients, the history of the great perfume houses, and the links between fragrance and fashion.
