100 Fragrances That Influenced Perfume History E-Book

Many of you have been asking me to continue the series 100 Fragrances That Influenced Perfume History. These articles still remain among the most visited ones on Bois de Jasmin for the behind-the-scenes information they offer, stories and the connections between famous fragrances and contemporary launches. Since Bois de Jasmin is going to turn 17 years old next year, I decided to put the series into an e-book, which I will make available to my readers as a gift. Your participation and support mean a lot to me, and I would have been able to maintain Bois de Jasmin over almost two decades without it. It would be my pleasure to share something special with you.

  • John: I have to say, I scanned the email and came to the page fully expecting to pay for this book and would have been very happy to do so…So thank you for this generous gift! I think that there are other past pieces that could be ordered or expanded (such as you great guide to developing your nose, or a collection of five star reviews), but next time feel free to charge me a little if you feel so inclined… This blog is very valuable to me, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who appreciates all of the knowledge, passion and care that make it such a pleasure to read.

  • Ewan: Being tech-deficient I can only assume that I have subscribed correctly – I suppose it adds a little frisson to an action so often a matter of uninspiring simplicity.

    Thank you in advance, and in hope August 3, 2021 at 3:28am Reply

    • Victoria: If you’re using the same email as for commenting, then I don’t see it among my subscribers. Anyway, I just turned off the double opt-in, so all you need to do is to enter your email into the box in my post, and hit “Subscribe.” August 3, 2021 at 5:02am Reply

  • Hilde: Congratulations with the 17 th anniversary of Bois de Jasmin next year.

    In 2019 I became to know your blog and since then it has become my ‘encyclopedia’ for research on perfumes. It is a joy to read your articles and to watch your videos.

    You have an excellent taste, Victoria, and your advices have already helped me quite a lot in my perfume choices. August 4, 2021 at 3:45am Reply

  • Marc: Thank you for always being so generous with your content. I’ve enjoyed your blog posts so much. You have sparked my interest in classic perfume and I made my first purchase of Mitsouko last month thanks to you. I’m on my way to collect L’Heurre Bleue, Jicky and Samsara. Have a great day 😀 August 6, 2021 at 1:36am Reply

  • Tom-Scott Gordon: I bought a 75ml Mitsouko EDP spray around 2012 or so. I think this may be among the interim-formula years. It had the golden box with vertical stripes and a rectangle title block at the top, not like today’s with the gold square in the middle. Vintage ones apparently all had the B&W zig-zag pattern. I want the longest lasting unspoiled extrait. Would I be happy with this newest version at literally less than 1/2 the price? August 8, 2021 at 2:31pm Reply

  • Ewan: There are scenys of the uture August 9, 2021 at 2:17pm Reply

  • Nefertari: Oh my god, I missed this, I need it! It’s great to be able to see it done, I always respect these classic fragrances. I would like a copy to be sent to my email, I hope I still come in time. Thank you Victoria, generously and selflessly share the crystallization of your knowledge, belated celebration for Bois de Jasmin.
    Your loyal readers look forward to reading.
