Editorial Reviews

Review

I found this book superbly fascinating and honestly could not put it down. It brought me into a world I had not yet encountered with very close up and personal stories about many of my personal beauty icons. This is truly a book not to be missed and I will certainly never look at another fragrance bottle the same way.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a thoroughly enjoyable and educational book. Marc Rosen has a literary style that is easy to read and reflects his own stylish and glamorous yet down to earth personality. Sophisticated and unpretentious, he articulates the intuitive designs and the context within each of these designs was conceived. There are fascinating insights into the development of something that stimulates the senses so much. Its an intimate history of the fragrance and its other essence, the package, and Mr Rosen elevates it to its proper place. Along the way we are entertained with stories of the rich and famous, the glamorous, his own fascinating success story, in a lifestyle of luxury and excitement that enviously blurs the line between business and social life. This is a great overview of an important part of civilization and Marc Rosen does not miss a detail.

Part retrospective, part chronicle, part behind-the-scenes glimpse, Marc Rosen's Glamour Icons is a wonderful insider's perspective on the art of fragrance packaging design. Like many of Rosen's other ventures (such as his packaging design scholarship and his fragrance packaging design and marketing course, both through the Pratt Institute), this book is the first and only of its kind. While many other books have catalogued scents, this is the only book to lovingly capture the creation and history of the fragrance vessel (which is often the initial selling point of a fragrance). Bolstered by charming personal anecdotes, such as his courtship and eventual marriage to the actress Arlene Dahl while creating her fragrance bottle/packaging, it is a must for any collector or inquiring mind that is fascinated by the world of beauty, luxury, and fashion.

The only thing I wish is that readers could smell the perfumes!
