Présentation de l'éditeur

For thousands of years fragrance has been used, across many varied cultures, for altering mental and emotional states, and as part of spiritual practice. This book explores the impact of fragrance on the psyche from biological, anthropological, perfumery and aromatherapy viewpoints.

Beginning with an exploration of our olfactory system and a discussion of the language of odour, the book examines the ways in which fragrance can influence our perceptions and experiences. It introduces us to a broad range of fragrance types – woody, resinous, spicy, herbaceous, agrestic, floral and citrus, as well as the attars that form part of Unani Tibb medicine. Traditional and contemporary uses and the mood-enhancing properties of fragrance types are presented. The book then provides an overview of the theoretical and philosophical frameworks that have been used to analyse how and why we choose fragrance. Finally readers are given guidance on how to cultivate their olfactory palate, which reveals a new dimension in the use of fragrance to enhance wellbeing.

This book offers a wealth of knowledge on plant aromatics and the powerful influence of fragrance on wellbeing. It will be of particular interest to aromatherapists, perfumers, psychotherapists, ethnobotanists and anthropologists.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Plant Aromatics Information 15 avril 2014
Par Lakenvelder Muse - Publié sur
I have read many difference books about fragrances and aromatherapy and this writer really knows her stuff. The book is mostly concentrate on the perfume aspect but offers must needed up to date information of the different history and chemicals makeup involved in fragrances. This is one of the few books that explains the differences in the different varieties such as lavender. If you are interested in aromatherapy, perfume or the history of the practices using essential oils, attars and other sources you should at least read this book for greater understanding. The book would be a great asset to those interested in perfume or aromatherapy.

I also like Appendix D: Developing Sensory Appreciation. She explains how you can learn the difference fragrances and how they change with time.

I got this in kindle format and not all of the charts formatted correctly for Kindle so I suggest getting a paperback book instead of an ebook.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Net gallery . My opinions are my own.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A useful reference on fragrance 7 avril 2014
Par Mary Blowers - Publié sur

Fragrance and Well Being, by Jennifer Peace Rhind, is a delightful book. I only wish it were scratch & sniff. I have always loved fragrance and there are some that I can still experience today though the places are gone-grandmother’s house, summer camp, and the apple orchard where I played as a child. When I became a little older, my favorites were Lauren, Rive Gauche, Halston, and later Tiffany and Clinique Wrappings. This book shares the history of fragrance and will help you figure out what you like and why. You will learn the research that has been done on emotions and subsequent pheromones generated. Most interesting was the classification system involving floral, fruity, etc. with base notes and top notes. Once you discover which of these types you like, you could much more quickly find other fragrances you like.

I enjoyed this book but wondered if I needed to know all the history. Not all charts were formatted correctly for Kindle and that was a hinderance to my full enjoyment of the book. Overall I give it 4 stars.

This book is more than just a reference guide to fragrances, it is the author's passion for all things fragrant in book form. I like that the author decided to open the book with memories of her youth. I was expecting "Fragrance and Wellbeing" to be a this is good for that kind of book, but it turned out to be so much more. The depth of this book is amazing. It is worthy of a space on the bookshelf of those who desire to have an understanding of the history and psychology of fragrances. This book is more than a read once and put away book. It is a reference guide into the world of fragrances. You'll learn about every scent from frankincense to oregano and also some lesser known fragrances. I would have liked it more if pictures were added, but since the book is already 448 pages I can understand why they wouldn't be included.
