The Perfume Lover: A Personal History of Scent

The Perfume Lover:  A Personal History of Scent, by Denyse Beaulieu.  Denyse is a highly-respected perfume blogger Grain de Musc – who writes quite beautifully here about how her childhood passion for perfume became a life-long quest, enticing her to Paris and a career as a fragrance critic.  At the heart of this story, though, is how a conversation with L’Artisan Parfumeur perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour turned into a collaboration to produce an actual perfume, Séville a l’Aube – a divine orange-blossom-fulled Ambrée.  A truly excellent read and a great insight into the art of fragrance creation.
