Plaisirs de Parfums – Editions Paja, 2008

The Paja Editions will publish a new book on perfume in October-November 2008 authored by Béatrice Boissière under the artistic direction of Coco Tassel. Plaisirs de Parfums proposes to retrace a world history of fragrances since the 19th century with attention devoted to the compositions of fragrances and anecdotes on the milieu of perfumers. Long-lost fragrances are also not forgotten... The book includes four pages of detachable blotters. The publishing house describes it as a book-object (livre-objet) and as an olfactory saunter. Available on November 10th in bookstores but can also be purchased online (from October 24th) from Paja boutique.

L’Inde des Parfums - Éditions Garde-Temps, 2004

India is the new country to go. Trendy but still mysterious. For many, India is known for its raw materials used in perfumes, rituals of beauty and religion, and the Maharajas… But India is richer than those clichéd things. Enjoy this beautiful book dedicated to fragrance raw materials (tuberose, vetyver, sandalwood, rose…), indian beauty, and history to discover the country. A good way to visit this country by looking, reading and smelling (micro-encapsulation technics used thanks to Laboratoire Dessence) … Written by perfumer Nicolas de Barry (author of many books about fragrances and India), the book is enriched by Laurent Granier’s wonderful pictures.
