While it was originally written back in 1961, I am sure that it is still an invaluable reference for perfumers wishing to use aromatic ingredients of a natural origin such as essential oils and absolutes. This book is still the benchmark for explaining the organoleptic qualities of essential oils. It also provides us with a detailed explanation of the origin and production of the essentials oils, the risks of adulteration and practical advice on using the oils in flavouring and perfumery.
