How does a perfumer work?
In this book, perfumer Frank Bloem explains the magical role
scents play in our lives. Some of our most core-defining
memories are linked to smells and scents. The power of scent is
linked to significant memories, and we can often smell whether
something or someone is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. In a very personal way,
based on the structure of a well-formulated perfume, Bloem
introduces us to the realm of scent. He also gives the reader an
insight into the world of the perfumer. How do they create a
perfume, and what is the meaning of the fragrance components
