This guide explores the history of perfume-making from ancient times to the late 20th century, explaining why and how perfume was used for a variety of purposes. There are sections that describe the different processes that can be used for making perfumes and the key ingredients that contribute to popular formulas. It also explores the different designs of bottles, pots and vials, and why there has always been a strong link between the design of the receptacle and the potion it contains. The key section of the book provides an A-Z of over 70 major fragrance-producing houses and the products that have made them famous.
