    Default Great perfume porn

    Finally broke down and took my Amazon gift certificates and bought Michael Edwards' "Perfume Legends: French Feminine Fragrances"- gorgeous coffee table book, but I'm reading it cover to cover.

    It would be great if it were a "scratch-n-sniff" book!

    Amazon occasionally will pop up a decent discount on a barely used copy. Mine looked like it might have been out on display, but not purchased. Love that it gives a detailed biography and full pyramid for each of the 50 scents featured. And yeah, I wish it came with samples. In the last year I have tried and now own many of these, but there are still a lot I've never tried.Oddly enough, I seem to know more from around the 1920's than the 1980's

    I've already seen this online... I can't imagine scanning such a heavy, big book.
    I'm tempted to buy it, but there are necessary additions to my fragrance shelf that need to be taken care of first

    My Perfume Porn is "The Book of Perfume" by Elisabeth Barillé & Catherine Laroze.

    "She left a short while ago
    and yet remains near me
    with her perfume still
    alive, and still warm
    from her body, so intoxicating..."
    A fourteenth century Chinese poem

    Indeed, I have it too and it is both gorgeous and readable.

    I borrowed Stamelman's "Perfume: Joy, Scandal, Sin - A Cultural History of Fragrance from 1750 to the Present" from the library. It's a visual feast, but I found the text stuffy and padded.

    Sigh! I wish my library here in Galway would stock books like that. Such a small place, small country, small library, small minds.
