Repost in style and beauty -- I remember a thread a little while ago (very hazy memory) about perfumes and there were a few very knowledgeable posters on the subject who contributed to the thread who might be able to help.
I remember a thread a month or so ago, when an OP wanted an idea for a gift and a thirtyseomthing woman, and someone suggested buying a book about perfumes. I think it was along the lines of what aromas were used, how to biuld a perfume etc.
I now want to buy the book for my SIL and I can't properly identify it! I think (I may be wrong) that it was about £15 and it was definitely available to buy on Amazon.
