"When Celia Lyttelton set out to have a scent created solely for her, she found herself propelled into an adventure that would take her across the world, investigating the origins, history and culture of wonderfully exotic ingredients...The Scent Trail tells her story" (WOMAN AND HOME)
"A fantastic book about perfume and our sense of smell..." (ANNA SHEPARD, TIMES ONLINE)
"The intriguing relationship between scent, memory and place is the underlying note in Lyttelton's journey through the history, creation and business of perfume. We are whisked to traditional perfumers' workshops, with their phial-filled antique cases, to the spice souks of Marrakech, Ottoman houses in Turkey adorned with necklaces of peppers and chillies, iris farms in Italy, and the mossy-floored cedar forests of Azrou." (THE AUSTRALIAN)
"Have you ever had that overwhelming surge of emotion when even a faint smell transports you back to another place and time? This is exactly the type of feeling Celia Lyttelton sets off to explain as she embarks on a journey of discovery...This book offers an insight into the foreign origins of the perfumes lining chemist shelves, while taking us on a sensory adventure around the globe." (REAL TRAVEL)
"Artist and journalist Celia Lyttelton has travelled the world to discover the people behind perfume, from the peasants to the 'noses'" (YORKSHIRE TODAY)
