The Perfume Directory: The Definitive Guide to Choosing Your Next Scent (Hardback)

£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Perfume Directory is a beautifully illustrated compendium of more than 500 recommended scents, designed to help you pick out your next favourite fragrance.



Perfumes have the power to make us feel fabulous, remind us of treasured memories and to help us through the trials of daily life. But with so many out there, how do you choose something new? When the scents in the perfume shop are making you dizzy, how do you remain focused? And if your favourite scent goes out of stock, how do you replace it? The Perfume Directory is here to help. Sarah McCartney and Sam Scriven deliver a host of new scents for you to try - including bargain finds and luxury treasures, iconic stalwarts and indie newcomers, the masculine and the feminine. Sarah and Sam describe each perfume's unique top, mid and base notes to bring the scent to life - from how long it lasts on the skin, to the emotion it triggers; the playful and sexy to romantic and natural; perfumes that evoke long, hot summer days (Orange Blossom by Penhaligon's) and others that smell of luscious gardens at sunrise (Un Jardin Sur Le Nil by Hermes).



Discover hundreds of new fragrances in The Perfume Directory and find the scents to share your own memories with. This is the perfect companion to every beauty lover's dressing table.
