9780931710360: Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin

Important reference on natural fragrance materials!

Do you have a passion for natural essential oils? This is a must-have book.

Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin contains practical descriptions of available materials, their origin, production and processing, appearance, odor and flavor type, evaluation, application and availability with brief notes on their main constituents, replacements and most common adulterants.

This unique treatise is divided into two parts. The first is a clear set of definitions and processing methods that are used to isolate the natural products described in the book. The second part, which is the meat of this text, is a series of more than 500 monographs on crude and processed perfume and flavor materials of natural origin including both vegetable and animal-based products. Examples of materials contained in this text are items of rare usage such as agarwood oil, flouve isolates and civet products for the perfumer and horseradish oil, lemon petitgrain oil to tagetes oil for the flavorist. In addition all of the commonly used natural materials can be found in the text. An appendix contains a table on the tonnage of world production over the 1955 1959 period for a number of important raw materials. Also found is a series of 88 groupings listing classification of aromas for the perfumer and warm-woody, balsamic-spicy-notes for the flavorist to carnation-like for the perfumer and fresh peppery and warm for the flavorist.

Arctander s book is the most important reference on natural fragrance materials. His understanding of the nuances of scented material is unequalled, and he knows how to convey those subtleties to the reader in comparison to odors with which the reader is already familiar. The sheer passion for natural perfume materials manifest in his description has more than once stimulated me to track down some rare and unfamiliar essence. I lean on his book for my own descriptions of the individual essences, and I recommend buying a copy of it for yourself. Reading his descriptions of natural essences and comparing them to your own impressions is a terrific way to broaden your aromatic palette and to learn about the nuances of scent. --Mandy Aftel, Aftelier Perfumes
