A world tour of fragrant raw materials
From Sicily to Laos, Paraguay to Madagascar, this book takes you on an incredible olfactory journey for a series of fascinating encounters with perfume plants, the producers who create fragrance essences, extracts and molecules, the perfumers who use them, and the iconic compositions in which you will find them.

Vanilla, jasmine, bergamot, musks... This volume explores the diversity and richness of perfumery ingredients: their origins, cultivation, transformation and usage, as well as the innovations devised to address the environmental, economic and social challenges of today.
