Fragrances of the World 2006 by Michael Edwards


Fragrances of the World series by Michael Edwards will soon contain the new 2006 edition, which is about to be released in January of 2006. The new edition of his well-known guidebook will include 4,500 fragrances categorized by family, with 499 new fragrances added to the listing. The information included in the guidebook comprises fragrance families, houses and gender specification of fragrances.

As Moodiereport notes, Florals family has seen an increase among female fragrances, while Fresh scents have experienced a decline. Masculine fragrances demonstrate a rise in Woody and a decline in Aromatic Fougères. Three out of every ten new launches tend to be masculine fragrances, according to Edwards.



  • julien: Hi dear,

    I have never seen this book in France.
    Do you know if it exists here?
    Well,if it’s only about classification,this is not something very interesting…i prefer reading critics,or developments about notes,for example like you do so well or like Mister Turin does.

  • BoisdeJasmin: Julien, the book is in two language, English and French (one page for each), which is quite convenient. Although it does not offer descriptions, some people find classifications useful. To get an idea of what it might contain, look at this site: November 15, 2005 at 1:26am Reply

  • julien: Thanks for the link.

    Well,i must confess it doesn’t interest me ,even if i understand pretty well why it is interesting for people to know about classification.

    Thanks again,my dear.

  • BoisdeJasmin: Julien, that is fair. You might find Perfume Legends book very interesting, though. November 15, 2005 at 2:47pm Reply

  • julien: We have a new book in France written by a historian of perfumes ,a woman, Annick le Guerer,and i have read a few pages,it is just facinating.
    It deals with how perfumes became a very important thing in our lives,the history of technics of creation,the houses…

    So you are right,when it is about perfumes,it is interesting!:)
