it was amazing

First let me preface this by stating that I am a perfume collector, and love reading, discussing, and researching anything that has anything to do with perfume. But this is really a fascinating and fun read, following the creation of two different perfumes, one by Jean Claude-Ellena, inhouse perfumer for Hermes, and one by Sarah Jessica Parker. Chandler Burr is funny, intelligent and honest in his writing, and I will certainly be picking up whatever he puts out. He definitely knows how to find a story and get the best stuff - brainy but not condescending. Love it!
