The most respected perfume critic in the UK, James Craven takes us on an intensely personal journey to the meetin g place of perfume and memory; giving us over 50 essays covering such scents as the smell of his grandmother's handbag ( Blue Grass by Elizabeth Arden ), smoking ( Tabac Blond by Caron ), the scent of cold ( Acier Aluminum by Creed ) to the overwhelming odours o f Versailles in its heyday ( Bal a Versailles ).
His writing is as sensual and complex as the perfumes he describes, drawing on art, history, film and psychology and an extensive perfume directory completes this unique book.
