Unreadable but unmissable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Perfect Scent: A Year Inside the Perfume Industry in Paris and New York (Hardcover)
This book is a brilliant introduction to the arcane world of perfumery. A must-read for any perfume or cosmetics enthusiast, and very funny and at times shocking. Let down by the godawful style of writing - the author would clearly rather be a novelist and there are acres of self-aggrandising rubbish and hip street talk to wade through. But read it for the information it contains, not the style.
