In this book, the many dimensions and complexities of fragrance and our relationship to it are explored. It is a well researched and beautifully written tour de force that illuminates perfume's impact on and interaction with history, culture, society, art and attitudes for over two centuries and into the present.

Throughout the elegantly designed book varied imagery- works of art, perfume bottles, advertisements, posters and more- further capture perfume's unique transcendent and evocative qualities.
