All in all this is a serious book that will help the novice perfumer learning how to make things work without having to enroll in a formal class situation. While it does not provide the reader with specific perfume formulas it does provide for numerous single note accords that can be worked out and modified as the perfumer designs. It is beneficial when wanting to learn more about essential oils, aroma chemicals, blending, and the business end of perfumery. One of the few books out there today that actually helps in education instead of just offering opinions. I would give this book a five star but some of the ingredients studied are a bit out dated for today's formulations.
