Perfume Legends

Ssr

‘Magnificent. The world’s leading writer on the subject.’  The Observer, London 


‘It is the first time that a book about perfume speaks about the
perfumer.’ Francis Fabron, Perfumer (L’Air du Temps, Fracas, etc.)

‘This
is a fascinating book for anyone with even a passing interest in
perfume. Charting all the great scents since the launch of Guerlain’s
Jicky in 1889 to Mugler’s Angel in 1992, this tells the story of some
of the world’s most famous fragrances. Edwards’s passion for the
subject makes this more a great read than just a reference book.
Information value: Outstanding. Everyone will find the story of the
creation, name and design of one of their favourite scents, including
Chanel No 5, Tabu, Joy, Nuit de Nol and Opium.’ Newby Hands, Harpers
& Queen

‘There is no other book like it.’ Edmond Roudnitska, Perfumer (Femme, Eau Sauvage, etc.) 

‘Ex-cep-tion-nel!
Sign Michael Edwards, cet album Parfums de Lgende est une petite oeuvre
d’art que tous les amoureux du parfum se doivent de possder. Voil en
effet, un livre extraordinaire. Pour la premire fois, les parfumeurs,
les couturiers, les crateurs de flacons et les dirigeants des grandes
maisons de parfums parlent de leur art comme ils ne l’ont jamais fait.
Un voyage fascinant dans l’univers des parfums au travers de leur
histoire, du savoir-faire franais, illustr par une iconographie superbe
et rare, des photographies, des croquis, des dessins et des documents
d’archives. Pour le prix d’une eau de toilette, Parfums de Lgende est
un livre-rvlation consulter – presque – comme un incunable.’ Paris
Match

‘Essential reading’ – Vogue
