    As long you see their work as personal review and not use it as "The Fragrance Bible" - then I have no problem at all with it.
    I bought the first and the second edition but I will pass for this one. I am still capable to trust my own nose and I only find the introduction very nice to read. After the 5th review it gets a bit dull and boring... .

    Since I already own Perfumes: The Guide, I'll probably give this a pass.

    Always a pleasure to read Turin's work even if I'm not a bona fide 'acolyte'... :wink:

    I've had this on pre-order from Amazon since July. Current release date is Oct-27, and Amazon usually ships for arrival on release dates. Currently priced at only $12 in US on pre-order. List price is $18. Order now at Amazon to lock-in the pre-order price. :wink:

    Also a great opportunity for the companies who made a good showing. They'd be crazy not to send this out with their annual report and leave piles of this slim volume in the waiting areas of their corporate headquarters. It's probably already a best seller because of preorders by the LVMH and Estee Lauder Groups alone.

    I must say that I'm not crazy about star ratings for any type of art (movies, music, theatre etc) but I will definitely buy a copy of this for myself, even if it's just to read the 're-smelling' sections.

    P.S. > Sorry, I'm just an ol' cynic. :o) ... But I am pretty sure thay're gonna make an absolute killing for Xmas. It does make a perfect Xmas gift. And I'm sure will grace many a loved one's stocking this year !

    Well, there's certainly no reason why they shouldn't "milk it" for all they can and for as long as they can, now is there !? ;o)

    Excellent! Turin and Sanchez are pure joy to read whether they're being naughty or nice. They elevate the whole conversation about fragrance.

    This is a great idea and I would buy the book. However, 100 looks good on a book cover but it is not a representative number. In the future I think an online database of 5-star perfumes should be slowly compiled and regularly updated. Basenotes could do that based on members’ reviews! Osmothèque has a nice site but too bad it’s only in French.

    I have this on pre order from Amazon.
