Required summer reading for perfume lovers! This is a great light read, the story of an engaging narrator who falls in love with perfume. This book is a lot of fun for followers of the popular perfume blogs because Harad namechecks many of the major players. This book is less in depth and more enthusiastic than some of Chandler Burr's offerings in the same genre but some of the descriptions are quite lovely and engaging. There aren't a lot of great perfume memoirs out there so this is a real treat. Full review on
