The 100 Essential Aroma Chemicals Series
The 100 Essential Aroma Chemicals Series consists of five kits, each of 20 materials, that together constitute some of the most useful materials available to the modern perfumer. The first job of any beginning perfumer is to learn your materials and the huge selection available can seem overwhelming: the idea of these kits is that that can be purchased in order, so that you can get to know 20 ingredients at a time.
