Book came in perfect state, very much like new. I was having a fantastic time reading it (it's a very comprehensive title as far as outlooks go), but I guess that my dog enjoyed it way more because he ate every single page of it, either entirely or pieces. I will order another one.

If you want to know about perfume this is the book for you. It's accurate, detailed, thorough, interesting and not very big. I liked it so much I bought a copy for a friend who is very involved in perfume and she loved it also.

I had this book when I was much younger, but my mom took all of the oils from it and used them decoratively and I never got any of them back. My boyfriend recently re bought it for me and I could not be happier. Maybe I'll read the book too now that I'm older, because it seems incredibly interesting but still pretty concise.

I bought the original book from the Metropolitan Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. The oils are of excellent quality. I had been working with aromatherapy and this book certainly broadened my knowledge. Then a friend gave me another copy for a birthday gift. As much as I like it, two was more than I needed (my duplicate is for sale).

I purchased Maya (headnotes of chocolate and vanilla) and since I bought this product, I use only this one and have used none of my other perfumes. This scent is entrancing and gives you a great feeling. I notice that others comment on this scent a lot. This is aromatherapy at its best. Mara

I *just* got this, so I haven't read all of it, but it's a well-written and beautifully-illustrated history of perfume - and the scents are wonderful. If I knew anyone that was as BIG a perfume freak as myself, I would get this for them immediately. Well-done & fun.
