Description
 
First published in 1915, this volume contains a detailed guide to the preparation and manufacture of perfumes and cosmetics, originally intended for professional perfumers and cosmetic manufacturers. Although old, this volume contains a wealth of practical and useful information, and it is highly recommended for modern readers with an interest in perfumery. Contents include: "The History of Perfumery", "About Aromatic Substances in General", "Odors form the Vegetable Kingdom", "The Aromatic Vegetable Substances Employed in Perfumery", "The Animal Substances Used in Perfumery", "The Chemical Products Used in Perfumery", "The Extraction of Odors", "The Special Characteristics of Aromatic Substances", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned introduction on essential oils.
