About this title


The use of scent reaches far back into prehistory, when people burned the simple, natural fragrances of plants and flowers to gratify the gods. Now, perfume has become a global industry, but it still brings pleasure to the user and to others who catch a whiff of its enchanting bouquet. From essential oils to aerosols, from jasmine, lavender, and tuberose to Chanel No. 5 and L'Air du Temps, take a look at the art and science of perfume-making through time. Featuring milestones in the annals of fine fragrance, and elegant color photographs, here are the world-famous perfume houses; the famous firsts, such as Guerlain's celebrated 19th-century scent, Jicky; the unforgettable advertisements (often with glamorous stars), and the beautifully designed flacons--including one by Surrealist artist Salvador Dali.
