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.

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 *
