About this Item

Hardcover, 157 pages. Signed by author on front free endpaper. Binding is square and tight. Dust jacket is shiny, bright, and has only a slight bump along top edge. Pages are crisp, and so glossy that they squeak under your fingers. As expected of a National Geographic publication, this book is beautifully illustrated with stunning full-color photos of those working in the perfume industry--from farmers, to designers--as well as images of perfume ingredients, containers, and inspirations.
