The incredible stories of 100 perfumes from a whole century of scents. Signature scents and now lost masterpieces; the visionaries who conceived them; the wild and wonderful campaigns that launched them; the women and men who wore them - every perfume has a tale to tell. Join Lizzie Ostrom, dubbed `the Heston Blumenthal of perfume' (Daily Mail), on an olfactory adventure as she explores the trends and crazes that have shaped the way we've spritzed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wonderful, well-informed read... Charming and illuminating... I loved it... if you're thinking about Christmas presents I would buy it..." -- India Knight * Spectator *
"Lizzie Ostrom's entertaining romp through a century of perfumes, ten per decade from 1900 to 1999... This book is as delectable an artefact as the product it describes... the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of J'Adore in your stocking." -- Suzi Feay * Independent *
"A really enjoyable, fun book... a great stocking filler." -- BBC Radio 2 Fact Not Fiction Book Club * The Arts Show with Claudia Winkleman *
"Beautifully written and illustrated with a sumptuous cover, this would make a perfect gift." -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * Stylist *
"More social history than beauty book... the witty insights and fun, chatty style make this a lush treat or a gorgeous gift." -- Alexandra Heminsley * The Debrief *
