Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back. – Marian Bendeth
Do you want to get down to work and start creating your own perfumes? Then this book is here for you. Slobodanka Postic has banked on her years of experience teaching people the art and craft of making perfumes, and brings to you a brilliant guide.
Being a manual, with its typical structure and tone, full of practical and technical advice, it still succeeds in remaining readable and enjoyable. The theoretical knowledge and practical competence of the author are evident, as it is the love and joy of talking about fragrances. Being a technical person I was really drawn to it and I wanted to start filling in the questionaries and experience my essential oils from this perspective. And working in extraction and distillation, I really appreciated the recipes and extraction suggestions.
A tour de force, Fragrant Signatures is much more than a guide or a manual – it is destined to become a classic and essential text on natural and botanical perfumery.
We are humans. We make mistakes. There are these two errors in English version of the manual.
