This thought-provoking volume transports readers to France of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, beginning with Napoleon's love of perfume and the erotic importance he attached to it, through the lore and symbolism fragrance enjoyed in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Europe. By the early twentieth century, perfume's place as one of France's most important luxury industries was recognized and celebrated, and timeless fragrances—such as Chanel No. 5, Shalimar, Arpeges, and Joy—were launched. The distinctive bottles for these new essences and the art movements that inspired their design are detailed throughout the book, as are paintings, poetry, and literature that reveal the power of perfume and its ability to recall the past and evoke sensuality. According to nineteenth-century perfumer Eugene Rimmel, "the history of perfume is, in some manner, the history of civilization." Through fascinating text accompanied by gorgeous imagery, including packaging, labels, and advertisements, Perfume: Joy, Scandal, Sin explores perfume's impact on history, culture, society, art, and attitudes.

In this illustrated study of the fragrant resin crystal once valued as highly as gold, Juliet Highet takes readers back through time and over the Frankincense Trail, from Southern Arabia to Ancient Rome. The Land of Frankincense - three ancient Omani cities connected with the frankincense trade - were recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The history and value of the resin, once as important to the ancient Arabian world as oil is now, is not widely appreciated today. This book that combines travel writing, history and a glimpse into the world of perfumery explores every aspect of these scented, amber-coloured 'pearls', from frankincense's harvesting from beneath the bark of desert trees, through the vital role it played in the culture of the old Middle East, to its contemporary use in aromatherapy and perfume. Hundreds of colour photographs illustrate the cultivation and preparation of frankincense today along the historic incense routes, while artworks and maps reveal how this luxury item was for thousands of years so crucial to the economy and life of Arabia.
