Bound with a cinnamon stick, this first of our series,
In the Wake of Perfume, pays homage to ancient aromatics.
From the sacred to the profane, our sexiest release yet addresses
how the limbic center of the brain sorts olfactory stimuli. In other
words, this issue smells out the truth about why humans react to
both the foul and the fragrant.
Two extra concertina booklets are included in this
issue. On the Nose Gifts - 6 Recipes and Gift tags features
recipes for making scented herbal bath salts, massage oil, lip balm,
after shave, pomanders and more. About Face - Herbal Fixers and
Elixirs is a two-faced exposť of antique and modern beauty
treatments, home remedies, and herbal potions. You can easily reproduce
all the modern concoctions from readily available ingredients, but
the historical mixtures once crafted to defy the aging process call
for hard-to-come-by oddities like a baby raven fed on hard boiled
eggs. Finding that might add a wrinkle to your brow.
Inside the clever tab-locked cover, you'll discover
the secrets of Cleopatra's boudoir and learn how Renaissance ladies
revealed their desire. This monograph also distills the myth and
magic of aphrodisiacs and the ancient art of alchemy so closely
aligned with perfumery. From secret workshops behind fashionable
18th century scent shops to modern scientists' rootbeer-scented
petunias, our illustrated, uncensored mixed bouquet of art, science,
literature, and anthropology is informative, entertaining, and just
a bit erotic.
