    Default Best book on the art of natural perfume making?

    Dear all,

    I wondered if you would be able to share your favourite books on natural perfume making please?

    Lots of books out there and free stuff on the web, but many are not such great resources and give misleading information.

    If you have had a good experience with a trusted book, I would love to hear.

    Many thanks in advance!

    You are so kind thank you - I did do a search but wasn't sure if they were for natural ingredients only.
    I imagine they didn't have synthetic ingredients way back when, so perhaps a more historical book would be a good start.

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    It's way more difficult using only naturals & very many people consider it unsatisfactory for a variety of reasons - that's probably reflected in the book list.
    If you'd like to read some of the threads in the DIY section there's a lot of information which may be helpful.
    Good luck!

    Thank you for your comments, yes I agree it could be more tricky to make a lasting fragrance. I'll have a read of some more threads.

    Wishing you a lovely sunny week !
