Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 January 2012
Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This book, part biography, part paean to the art of perfume - with a hint of travelogue - isn't my normal read. Though I consider myself a lover of scent, I've been led by the nose rather than delved overmuch into its history. This book, however, really opened my eyes to the phenomena that is perfume. I was astounded to discover that there are circa 500 launches a year,due mostly to the new celebrity scents that overcrowd the market; and how much modern perfume differs from its vintage counterpart - more product than scent, it seems. I also loved the process that she and her collaborator went through to create a new . Her journey through France and her memories of Spain left an evocative fragrance of their own. Witty and impatient by turns, Denyse is both pioneer and pilgrim, and yes, perfumers muse, as she seeks her own personal Grail. A fascinating story, one that will go with me via Kindle next time I go to France!
