    (PDF/EPUB) [The Perfect Scent: A Year Inside the Perfume Industry in Paris and New York] · Chandler Burr I finished this book a while back I'm not sure what to say except that Chandler Burr knows the perfume industry inside out Knowing that it seems odd to me that there are no scandals everyone behaves perfectly well and fairly This just isn't how business works this is how PR works Another revenue stream for the author Additionally Sarah Jessica Parker has far far input into 'her' perfume than any of the other celebrities

The Perfect Scent by Chandler Burr is the story of creating and marketing a fragrance for the very rich and two disparate approaches taken by luxury houses in the trade One the anonymous to the public at large but indispensable perfumier working for an absolutely top of the line house in this case Jean Claude Ellena for Hermes the other the launch of a celebrity scent in this case Sarah Jessica Parker s for Coty My first thought even before opening the book was There s such a thing as a perfume critic My second thought just a few pages in was I don t know never have known and never will know anybody like the people in this book and I wouldn t want to either But once I got into the book and because I am curious about well just about everything I was captivated by the behind the scenes look at an industry to which I had never previously given a second s thought Not only that I now realize that while the marketing of perfume is indeed an industry the making of perfume is an art and this if for no other reason and there were other reasons made The Perfect Scent a worthwhile read Who would have guessed outside of the tiny circle at the top of the high end scent industry that the story behind the various perfume houses is a subject worthy of a serious cultural historian Likewise who would have guessed that the story of the French village of Grasse and its long tradition of family perfumiers would be so engrossing The story of the molecular chemistry behind the birthing of a new scent reads like the very best of scientific popularization the story of the labyrinthian conflict between the various houses reads like a well wrought and technically dead on espionage thriller and the discussion of the Natural vs Synthetic battles being waged between the perfumiers behind corporate fortifications was an eye opener for anybody with even a twinkle of interest in the bond between the real chemistry and the fabricated the great perfume houses Of particular interest was the huge gap between the creators of the scents for whom it is a labor of love and the vultures in suits who take the credit for them even if they themselves can t smell the difference between an indole and an orange Burr makes this point brilliantly and devastatingly clear with a single sentence as sharp as it is true from page 136 Millions are fascinated by the process by which designers Todd Oldham cut sew design and agonize their fall collections into existence the great creative minds at Yves St Laurent and Jean Paul Gautier and Dior with the collective brilliance of a single mollusk at low tide have intuited that with perfume No Another fascinating sidebar story was the process by which a celebrity scent is created and marketed and the amount of involvement or total lack thereof the celebrity has in the creation of their scent Some almost all celebrities are involved only to the extent that their lawyer tries to extract every possible sou from the company seeking to profit from their transient ascendancy SJP on the other hand knew exactly what she wanted in a scent and was thrilled to be involved in and learn about the science and creation of a fragrance Yet another aspect of the industry about which I hadn t a clue before reading The Perfect Scent but now find uite fascinating is the time effort research funds and artistic creativity which go into designing both the bottle for the scent and the box in which the bottle is be is to marketed Now this was not a perfect book by any means the descriptions of the scents seem at times to be forced like the guest eaters comments on the original Japanese Iron Chef but the fact that it was still an entertaining and absorbing read speaks well of both the author and his ability to capture the attention of someone who was a complete and total ignoramus of the subject written about Well I am an ignoramus no longer and I have to say that re perfume and perfumiers the Perfect Scent will be hard to top Oh and I also now realize that the people in this book those who I have no desire to actually meet would have no desire to meet me either and that seems imminently fair and reasonable And in the spirit of Columbo just one thing There is one person in this book I would actually like to meet Sarah Jessica Parker She is either the nicest person in Show Business or the greatest living actress I prefer to think the former
