This title also features introductions to women's and men's fragrances, to trends and to history and chemistry; a glossary and many 'Top Ten' Lists; and, an informative section on frequently asked questions. It is a truly unique and useful guide, one written with a passion for its subject, and a perfect gift. It includes: Chinatown (Bond number 9); gourmand chypre (the endearingly plucky firm of Bond number 9 has produced its first masterpiece ...like a corner of a small French grocery in summer); a treasure in a beautiful bottle; Hugo (Hugo Boss); unexciting lavender, dull but competent ...suggestive of a day filled with strategy meetings; and, Gardenia (Chanel) - not gardenia ...a thoroughly unpleasant, loud airport-toilet floral.
