The perfumes of life are all around us. Freshly mown grass, a pine forest, baking bread, the sea and the seashore all provide refreshing and welcoming fragrances, while the clinical smell of a hospital or the pungent stench of a farmyard may be less appealing. Our own personal aromas play a large part in the quality of our life as well, whether they are natural or chosen. In this instructive volume, the author demonstrates how scent and fragrance can have life-improving values. They can enrich the body and the spirit, whether in the natural form of gardens or the science-driven world of perfumery, as pure herbs and essences, and, for the person in tune with their senses, they can influence physical and mental well-being. Most people already have some idea of the power of perfume. This wide-ranging, informative book will help you to make it work for you.
