Perfumes : the guide

Title: Perfumes : the guide
This book was mentioned in “Coming to My Senses” (see my previous review). I never thought a book about perfume could be funny but this one’s hysterical. The authors do a comprehensive review of several hundred fragrances, and do not hesitate to call a spade a spade (or say that certain perfumes smell like drain cleaner, wet dog, or filthy clothing). The book is a tad dry in places, but overall quite informative.
