Book Description1865. With about 250 illustrations by Bourdelin, Thomas, etc. Eugene Rimmel joined his father's perfumery business in London's Bond Street in 1834. During his life, such was Eugene's success, that he collected 10 Royal Warrants from headsof state all over Europe, including Queen Victoria, for his perfumes and fragranced products. In Book of Perfumes, the Victorian parfumier celebrates perfume; tracing a fascinating path from ancient Egyptian history to the present period; describing the various modes in use for extracting the aromas from plants and flowers; and summarizing the principal fragrant materials used in manufacture.
