Discovering & Crafting Personal Fragrances
Just in time for the holiday "perfume-giving" season, Nancy M. Booth has written a straightforward little book that explains the nuances of scents and opens a reader's senses to the power of fragrances.
Perhaps best of all from gift-givers' perspectives, Perfumes, Splashes & Colognes (Storey Communications, 1997) provides step-by-step procedures for making both classic and unique fragrances at home, including what equipment to use and where to find it.
Altogether, there are over 50 recipes for perfumes for men, women, and teenagers.
Readers are exposed to all aspects of perfume-making, from the captivating history of fragrance, to a detailed list of the variety of fragrance ingredients, to a personality profile quiz that will match anyone with their own signature scent.
Booth offers other projects, too: making fragrant bath salts and incense, scented ink, and designing packaging for homemade scents.
Booth's warm style and compelling imagery make this book more than a dry instruction guide. Whether deciphering the differences between perfume ingredients, describing the qualities of fragrance oils and essential oils, or detailing each fragrance profile, Booth is always clear and precise.
A full glossary helps define any unfamiliar terms, and a helpful appendix and source guide help the novice get started.
Nancy M. Booth operates a wholesale and retail business selling dried herbs, potpourri, fragrance and essntial oils worldwide.
Perfumes, Splashes & Colognes (171 pages; paperback) is available through bookstores for $14.95. Internet users can order the book at a discounted price through the Vermont Weathervane Country Bookstore: www.ruralvermont. com/vermontweathervane/bookstore/.
