The Little Book of Perfumes: The Hundred Classics

The Little Book of Perfumes: The Hundred Classics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

A leading scholar in the field of olfactory science, Luca Turin received his PhD in biophysics from the University of London in 1978. He currently pursues research on quantum effects in biology.

Tania Sanchez is an avid perfume collector, published writer, and blogger.
