The Essence of Perfumes By Roja Dove
This is the first book by the world's only Professeur de Parfums, and it is as captivating as it is informative. Beginning with a comprehensive discussion of the sense of smell and the materials of the master perfumer, The Essence of Perfume goes on to celebrate the great classics, the makers who brought them to life and the designers who gave them shape. In an age where the methods and motivations of the original perfumers are all but forgotten, Roja Dove unfolds the gripping story of scent with all the passion and devotion of a true artist.
The Essence of Perfume praised in Grazia and Vogue:
- "Fragrance fans will find heaven within the pages of this beautifully illustrated book.... Delicious." Grazia
- "Roja Dove has siphoned his encyclopedic knowledge of all things perfume—the backstories, the love stories, the heartbreaks, the scandals—into a coffee table-worthy volume, The Essence of Perfume." Vogue
