This book is desperately in need of several things. First, the services of a capable editor would have been a good idea. Not only is the use of language clumsy, it reads as though written by someone for whom English is not a native language. Grammatical errors abound, syntax is awkward, and word use peculiar at best. There are sentences where words are obviously missing altogether. According to the author's bio, he is a PA resident and blogger, both of which make this reader shake her head in amazement. No wonder the state of language is so sad in this country.Now, as for content, on numerous occasions the author warns to find out about safety of certain ingredients, but never once offers readers sources of information about those safety concerns. His odd language use also results in mis-information and mis-categorization of certain ingredients.The balance of the book is simply lists of oil combinations with peculiar titles like Teen Love. It is not a particularly creative or well done volume, which makes me grateful I did not pay for it. It's not of any real fiscal value. A person truly interested in learning to blend his or her own fragrances would do just as well, if not better, spending five minutes doing some internet research.
I love great smelling fragrances and have spent a lot of money over the years on perfumes and body sprays ... I never entertained the thought of making the product myself, until I read this book. I found Chapter 1, "The Brief History of Perfume", very interesting as well as Chapter 7, "Creating Aromatherapy Perfumes". The author includes easy to follow recipes for many different types of fragrances ... floral scents, fruity scents, and oriental scents. Packed full of great information on the subject of making your own perfumes at home, this book will be a great addition to any "how to" library.
I thoroughly appreciate what the author has done in this book. I enjoy different fragrances and have often wanted to create my own scent. In the past I have looked for books that would help me create my own perfumes but to no avail. Most of the other books either didn't have enough information or were lacking key steps, not with this book. The author walks you through each step as well as stress the importance of having your area set up for creating your perfumes, which is extremely important. I also like the fact the author takes time to talk about the history of perfumes. I always believe if you want to create a product you need to know the history of what you are creating. Trust me when I say, you will not find another book like this one were the author is extremely knowledgeable on the topic. If are looking for a book to help you create your own unique smells this is definitely the book.
I don't have a problem with the book. My problem is with the poor formatting on my Kindle Fire. It is very difficult to read because of it. I adjusted the font size, line spacing and margin without success. This book could have used some editing, but it was full of great perfume recipes. I was able to look past the grammatical errors.
A very good way to give sufficient description on how to get started on perfume making for people who wants to have an idea on how fragrances are made step by step. I have made a couple of fragrances using this book as a guideline and it came out just the way I wanted. It's a simple book but yet a sophisticated work from the author.
I gave this book a high rate, because it provides a good start and resource for beginners. The recipes are easy to follow and produce. I had borrowed the book from Prime and after completing the book, I purchased it. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in experimenting with making perfumes or looking to start a new hobby that is fun.
This is a very comprehensive and detailed list of potential homemade perfumes and, crucially their ingredients as well. Formatting could be improved but takes nothing away from the value of this book.
A lot of good info on making custom fragrances for men and women. Also basic information to get started. Reccomend it for anyone interested in creating custom perfume.
