Synopsis: This book reveals perfume's widespread and permanent place in our culture of the senses, through illustrations, artefacts and paintings dating from 2000 BCE. The reader is guided through the ages through the bronze vessels of Babylon, kohl containers from Egypt, blown-glass amphorae from ancient Rome and the Islamic world, porcelain pot-pourris from the court of Louis XV of France, to the glass creations of Lalique in the 20th century. Included are eight historic perfumes: frankincense, rose, jasmine-sandalwood, orange blossom, spice, eau de cologne, mille fleurs and citrus.
