I remember hearing reports of this book here and there, but there's no thread. Since I won the book at perfumeshrine, I fell like I have to start one.
It is a pleasant and readable memoir of her engagement and wedding, and her concurrent start of a love affair with perfumes. Perfume lovers will nod in assent at many of the moments (the sampling, the visit to good perfume stores, the lamentations for the IFRA restrictions, and so on). I think it makes a good read for somebody who likes memoirs (and I must say I am not one of them) and either knows nothing about perfumes, or is just starting. There is a lot of basic, but very useful information about perfumery interspersed in the story - so it's a fun way to get started with something that doesn't read like a manual.
A curious (or frustrating) thing is that she does not say they name for half of the perfumes she cites. But perfume lovers are probably able to guess most of them.
