    Default Anyone read this?

    Wondering if anyone has read this book: "Perfumery - Practice And Principals" by Robert R. Calkin and J. S. Jellinek.

    I seems like a pretty comprehensive book, but it is very expensive and I hesitate to buy it without getting any opinions. *I am actually most interested in finding a library copy but I haven't started that search yet.

    [blue]Eau Boy,

    I have it, and I've read it. I found it interesting and useful, but for about a quarter of the price, The Chemistry of Fragrances by David Pybus and Charles Sell, is more informative and in a more detailed manner, and, finally, it is a more satisfying book. I would go with the Pybus/Sell book that was also the topic of a recent post asking for books about the chemistry of fragrances. For what it's worth, The Chemistry of Fragrances comes highly recommended by Luca Turin.

    I ordered The Chemistry of Fragrances the other day, looking forward to its arrival.
