Links and Helpful List of Books for Natural Perfumery


I' m a part of a yahoo group called Natural Perfumery and saw this post today for a newbie and thought this would really be beneficial for those who are interested in the wonders of natural botanicals and creating scent blends with them...

Books
The Scent Trail by Celia Lyttelton
Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin- Arctander ( This book is wicked pricey)
The Art of Perfumery by Septimus Piesse
The Rogue Perfumer by Dr. Bobbie Kelley ( This is a book by the perfumer of Paragon Perfumes, not entirely natural)
The Secret of Scent (science and history of smell) by Luca Turin
375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols by Jeanne Rose
