Le Snob Perfume : New Book on Fragrance

Hardie Grant publishing is releasing a new fragrance title called Le Snob Perfume. It’s part of its series of guides on various topics. The perfume book is written by Dariush Alavi, a blogger behind Persolaise.

A well-chosen scent can have a private conversation with its wearer for hours; it can punctuate the day with moments that range from moving to surprising to heart-breaking. The more we are able to understand the language in which perfume has this conversation with us, the better equipped we will be to discover and enjoy the experience of new fragrances.’

This book offers impeccable advice on all aspects of this artisanal product, from learning how to recognise olfactory categories to professional production techniques. Le Snob: Perfume includes indispensable advice from experts within the perfume industry on subjects ranging from selecting a perfume to correct storage. In addition, the book includes a directory of the world’s most sought after fragrances.

Witty, assured and informative, this book is the perfect companion for those on the quest for the perfect scent. Le Snob: elite guides for those in the know.

To be released on October 2012, £8.99, Hardback. Currently available for order at www.amazon.co.uk. Via press release
