 As  long as there has been passion, there has been perfume. Wealthy Romans  used to scent their doves while in Shakespeare's time, a woman in love  would place a peeled apple into her armpit to saturate it with her scent  and then present it to her lover. Essence And Alchemy resurrects the  social and metaphysical legacy that is entwined with the evolution of  perfumery, from the dramas of the spice trade to the quests of the  alchemists. Aftel tracks scent through the boudoir and the bath and into  the sanctums of worship, and along the way teaches us the art of  perfume-making, including many of her own recipes, offering insights on  the relationship of scent to solitude, sex, and soul.
