Fragrant Reading

Hey, hey! I felt the sudden urge to start collecting all fragrance-focused literature. So, here's two books from Mandy Aftel that I haven't cracked open yet. I've got The Perfume Guide from Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez, and The Secret of Scent (also from Luca), what else do I need? What are you favorite perfume reads?

  1. Fragrant is excellent! That was my favorite fragrance read this summer. I also enjoyed The Perfect Scent by Chandler Burr.

  2. A slightly different literary angle here, but the way I got into perfumery (4160Tuesdays) was by writing a novel, The Scent of Possibility, and then making the perfumes I'd written about. If you'd like to read it, I'd be happy to sent you a copy.

    1. Sarah, how interesting (and how generous of you!), I'd be absolutely delighted to read The Scent of Possibility.

  3. Jitterbug perfume! Not directly about fragrance, but a cult classic.
