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 use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
