Editorial Reviews


"…Kaiser is a fine writer with a deep mind, and his ability to put us in touch with distant locations…present the unique opportunity for us to see how scent helps to refine (and define) a given culture." (Electric Review, February/March 2007)

"The layout, printing, and photographs are all excellent, and the quality of the cover and sewn bindings gives it a sense of luxury, thereby making it a volume to be read and handled with respect as well as pleasure. The beautiful photographs and plethora of fascinating information would make the book irresistible to the layman, yet at the same time the technical detail will hold the chemist's attention. I can imagine the book lying on a coffee table to lure nonspecialists into opening it, sampling the richness of the content, and being drawn to an appreciation of the wonders of natural products chemistry. For the specialist, it is an invaluable source of information and inspiration." (Angewandte Chemie IE)

"This is a fascinating and enlightening book about the chemistry of flower scents and other natural materials…" (Chemistry & Industry, 30th July 2007)

"This is a highly entertaining and well produced book that brought me a lot of pleasure and interest." (Chromatographia, August 2007)
