The information presented in this book is amazing in its scope and depth. Histories of anything usually leave me bored, but I was thoroughly impressed by the unusual yet thorough way Morris presented the information. It is not intended to be a how-to manual. If you just want to know how to make perfume, soap, candles, etc. and don't want to be knowledgeable about your product then this is not for you. Personally, I found it fascinating.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Besides relating the history of perfume, it highlights geopolitic information that creates a well-rounded biography of perfume. I highly recommend reading this book if you are interested in learning about the history of perfume.

This was all right. I wanted more. The writing gets a bit pedantic.
