Comments: This book was not quite what I was expecting. It has many nice perfume recipes that you can create with fragrance oils and has a very thorough and interesting history of the perfume industry. I had hoped it would contain more information regarding creating natural perfumes using essential oils however.

Comments: I really like this book! she gives a great, quick background on the history of fragrances as well as good information on understanding the various fragrance families. She describes the "notes" categories and really made it all quite easy to understand, especially by relating everything back to well known fragrances. There are quite a few recipes and they are very easy to follow. Great book!
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
