Product description

Review

“Femme fatale Denyse Beaulieu undresses the art of perfumery with a sensual, scintillating striptease.”
Laren Stover, author of THE BOMBSHELL MANUAL OF STYLE

“A uniquely personal–even intimate–story of a love affair with perfume and with Paris. Chatty, gossipy, and charming, THE PERFUME LOVER draws aside the veil on the secret world of scent.”
Tilar Mazzeo, author of THE WIDOW CLICQUOT AND THE SECRET OF CHANEL NO. 5

“A gorgeous romp through the history of perfume and a personal exploration of its role in Beaulieu's life as a woman and world class sensualist … A thoroughly delectable and passionately intelligent read.”
Debra Ollivier, author of the bestseller WHAT FRENCH WOMEN KNOW

“Written with wit and passion, insight and elegance. I read if first with interest and then again, for pleasure.”
Fragrances of the World
