We live in a world surrounded by scents, some pleasant and some not always to our liking. Homemade natural scents can provide a pleasing alternative to commercial products. Booth, a teacher of perfumery, provides recipes for perfumes and other scented items using mainly essential oils, spices, herbs, and fruit extracts. A description of perfume ingredients and correct use of scents is included. Practical line drawings typical of this publisher accompany the text. A good selection for crafts collections.
