Description - Perfumes by Luca Turin

The must-have perfume guide has been hailed as a masterpiece of criticism and invective. Over 400 new fragrances have been added to the original 1500 in this updated paperback.

Perfumes: The Guide is the culmination of Luca Turin's lifelong obsession and rare scientific flair and Tania Sanchez's stylish and devoted blogging about every scent that she's ever loved and loathed. Together they make a fine and utterly persuasive argument for the unrecognised craft of perfume-making. Perfume writing has certainly never been this honest, compelling or downright entertaining.
