Perfume a Century of Scents by Lizzie Ostrom
Select size

Sitting on the bookshelves in Perfume & Lush Co-Founder Mark's Constantine's lab, this book weaves the incredible stories of 100 perfumes (ten lovingly chosen scents for each decade of the twentieth century) in all their fragrant glory.

Scent has played an elusive role in our cultural history, through literature, theatre, fashion, advertising and film. This olfactory adventure explores the trends and influences that have shaped the way we’ve spritzed.

Signature scents and now lost masterpieces; the visionaries who conceived them; the wild and wonderful campaigns that launched them; the women and men who wore them - every perfume has a tale to tell.
