    Compiling my list for Santa - do you think this book is a good all-round reference for a BN perfumista (albeit relatively new), or more of an introduction for new-to-scent readers? I loved the Guide, by the way.

    Thanks for the great information! Without Luca doing any more reviews, it's always good to find new competent sources. After reading Persolaise's blog, I find much talent there, although he's certainly not taking too many chances with his reviews. I prefer those with strong opinions on both sides, as it not only makes for compelling reading, but provides a heightened sense of desire to try new things. Good work none the less. Thanks to all mentioned in this article and to the author!

    Well, Santa came early this year! The book is worth reading, with good, albeit condensed, information and helpful hints from other perfume experts, e.g. Roja Dove. My only gripe is that I felt it needed to be twice as long. The reviews were great, but I wanted more of them, plus some less favourable ones too, as per The Guide. But this is the downside of "format" books like this: the publishers set the length very rigidly, and there's no room for manoeuvre. Persolaise, why don't you write your own book on the subject? I'd be first in line to buy!
