|Name Of Book||The Raw Materials of Perfumery Poucher|
Authors: Poucher, W.A.
Editors: Jouhar, A.J. (Ed.)
This classic work by Poucher, first published in 1923, was last produced in three volumes titled, respectively The Raw Materials of Perfumery (seventh edition, 1974), The Production, Manufacture and Application of Perfumes (eighth edition, 1974) and Modern Cosmetics (eighth edition, 1974). Its popularity is well demonstrated by there having been three reprints of these editions in 1976, 1979 and 1984, respectively . The history of events can be traced by reference to the prefaces to earlier editions and those interested should study these with care since they give a fascinating insight into developments in the subject fields covered by Poucher''s Perfumes, Cosmetics and Soaps over the years. It is not proposed to provide a resume here. In this Volume I, the current edition attempts to provide data about raw materials in a more formalized way than before, so that not only the history of some compounds can be checked, but also so that useful reference information can be obtained. It is particularly relevant to do this, since it is not always easy to be certain of nomenclature. Moreover, as we move towards ''ingredient labelling'' (a trend not welcomed by some), a high level of uniformity will be needed. Whether this will come from adoption of CTFA terminology, use of CAS numbers or some other system is not clear. Where possible, such data have been included so that readers may identify materials more readily. Where given, CAS numbers are located in the top right-hand corner of each entry.

Perfume molecules are compounds of carbon and hence come under the general heading of organic chemistry. Our bodies are also composed of organic chemicals and so are most of the components of consumer goods such as soaps and detergents. Understanding Fragrance Chemistry therefore concentrates on those aspects of organic chemistry, which are of particular importance to the fragrance industry. It is intended for those who have little or no previous training in chemistry and who would like to know enough in order to improve their understanding of perfume and its interactions with the wide variety of products in which it is used.
Each chapter has review questions which allow readers to check their understanding of the content, and glossaries are provided where appropriate. A chapter on chemical information and a bibliography will help those who want to read more on any of the subjects covered.
Note: Also available in this comprehensive set are botanical information, detailed odor and flavor descriptions, suggested uses, literature references and some safety and regulatory information.
This is the first book by the world’s only Professor de Perfumes, and it is as captivating as it is informative. Beginning with a comprehensive discussion of the sense of smell and the materials of the master perfumer, The Essence of Perfume goes on to celebrate the great classics, the makers who brought them to life and the designers who gave them shape. In an age where the methods and motivations of the original perfumers are all but forgotten, Roja Dove unfolds the gripping story of scent with all the passion and devotion of a true artist.
The Essence of Perfume praised in Grazia and Vogue:
This comprehensive reference discusses several hundred compounds comprising most of the materials used in the perfumery and flavoring industry. Includes:

this book has become the standard reference work for perfumery students throughout the world. Intended as a first-year text, the book assumes no prior knowledge of perfumery. The authors provide integrated coverage of topics from raw materials to supermarket shelves, from science to creation, and through to marketing and business policy.
The power of fragrances to communicate is strongly emphasized and an explicit framework of odour vocabulary provided. Detailed discussion is included of the new product development process and the central role of the perfume brief. For this edition, all chapters have been revised, some considerably, and the book will be of great value to any writer or researcher wishing to consider any issues relating to fragranced products.
Tony Curtis, Principal Lecturer in Business Policy and International Business, Plymouth Business School, Plymouth University, has many years of experience in the aroma trades industry in research, development, production, application, creative perfumery, evaluations and marketing. He lectures on international business with special emphasis on the aroma trades.
The late David Williams was a consultant and author of books on essential oils. He taught and developed the teaching of perfume technology in both further and higher education, in industry and by distance learning.
“This will be a very useful tool for those looking for a comprehensive text on the business of perfumery.”
Felix Buccelato, Perfumer & Flavorist, May 2002
"This book gives a good overview of the perfumery industry and the materials and techniques used in the creation and manufacture of perfumes. The book is good for those interested in an academic style of training and a must read for those thinking of starting their own business in the field of perfumery. It explains the basic chemistry considerations of aroma chemicals in an easy to read and understand way and is good for those without a chemistry background."

Muller, P.M., Lamparsky, D. (Eds.)
The idea of publishing this book on Perfumes: Art, Science and Technology grew out of the observation that, on the verge of the 1990s, there was really no state-of-the-art compilation of the relevant know-how on which the fragrance industry is based. It was obvious that such a compilation would be well received, not only by perfumers and fragrance chemists, but also by those involved in related trade and marketing or in the development and distribution of consumer products, by researchers from other fields, by students and, finally, by amateurs of perfumes in general. Therefore, we set out to find competent authors who were willing to contribute to the endeavour, and we did not do this unselfishly; on the contrary, we selected a wish-list of specialists who would provide us with new insight and characterize the trends and research priorities determining the future. Thus, we were counting on learning much ourselves in the course of the project. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the reactions to our first letter-and so was Elsevier. We certainly had not expected perfumers who are usually much more 'doers' than 'writers' to react in such an enthusiastic way; especially, the spontaneous affirmative answer from the famous E. Roudnitska created a momentum which contributed significantly to the successful comple tion of this book. But, of course, we should not create the impression that the other authors' chapters are less important, and we thank all of them heartily for their invaluable effort.

During the past decade there have been many changes in the perfumery industry which are not so much due to the discovery and application of new raw materials, but rather to the astronomic increase in the cost of labour required to produce them. This is reflected more particularly in the flower industry, where the cost of collecting the blossoms delivered to the factories has gone up year after year, so much so that most flowers with the possible exception of Mimosa, have reached a cost price which has compelled the perfumer to either reduce his purchases of absolutes and concretes, or alternatively to substitute them from a cheaper source, or even to discontinue their use. This development raises an important and almost insoluble problem for the perfumer, who is faced with the necessity of trying to keep unchanged the bouquet of his fragrances, and moreover, to ensure no loss of strength and diffusiveness. Of course, this problem applies more especially to the adjustment of formulae for established perfumes, because in every new creation the present high cost of raw materials receives imperative consideration before the formula is approved.Table of contents (13 chapters)

Discover the secrets behind fragrance formulation and evaluation of fragrance performance!
Perfume Engineering is a must-have reference for engineers who design any products that require fragrances, such as perfumes, cosmetics, healthcare and cleaning products.
This book provides the reader with practical guidance on perfume design, performance and classification, from its beginnings as a liquid mixture to the vapour phase, by way of odorant dispersion and olfactory perception. It does this through the application of development and validation models to account for fragrance evaporation, propagation and perception.
