Book Description

First published in 2006.  'As perfume is an art, it should be revealed to artists' was the passionate belief of the author, the renowned French cosmetic chemist R-M Gattefosse, who coined the term 'aromatherapy' and was instrumental in its development. In this volume Gattefosse set out to restore the fortunes of the French perfume industry after World War II by educating a new generation in the artistic principles of perfumery and cosmetology as well in chemical and technical matters.
