What’s interesting about this book is the duo cover the fragrance world from mass to ultra-luxury finding the best scents in each category. They’ve uncovered a handful of bargain finds that smell expensive. And they revisit iconic stalwarts explaining why these perfumes have stood the test of time.

    I picture myself sitting by my large picture window on a snowy and blustery day, a cup of tea in hand and a stack of perfume books beside me. The best!
