Reviews

"In Homemade Perfume, Anya showcases both her depth of knowledge of natural fragrant materials and her comprehensive experience in working with them, showing us how to produce wonderfully fragrant oils, tinctures, butters, and more."
-- Robert Tisserand, founder of the Tisserand Institute"This is an essential guide for every student of natural perfumery."
-- Mindy Green, aromatherapist, herbalist, and coauthor of Aromatherapy"Anya is a master of natural perfumery and highly attuned to its many layers of craft. Those drawn to the art of weaving exquisite botanical essences into swoon-worthy fragrances will benefit richly from her insight and guidance."
-- Alexandra Balahoutis, botanical perfumer and founder of Strange Invisible Perfumes"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Anya McCoy for over 17 years, and what she doesn't know about the world of natural perfumery isn't worth knowing."
-- Grant Osborne, founder and editor of basenotes.net"In Homemade Perfume, [Anya McCoy] gives you step by step instructions that are very clear, and with their help, you can make your own essential oils, tinctures, even hydrosols! ... The book is really nicely produced, clear, with a large number of photographs so you not only have instructions, but also have visual references to help you to understand exactly what to do, and how to do it in sequence. ... You really do get comprehensive advice here, and it is by far the best book I have seen on this subject."
--Blacknall Allen's A Perfume Blog"Homemade Perfume is a rather comprehensive DIY 'treatise'' on the art of traditional plant extraction methods, taking you through 6 clearly structured chapters, supported by beautiful pictures. Anyone with the slightest interest in the traditional methods of perfume-making will appreciate how easy it is to apply the guidelines that Anya McCoy generously shares thanks to her 40+ years of experience."--Cafleurebon"With a few well chosen plants for harvesting, and a few easy to gather tools, homemade perfume (and other scented products) is made beautifully possible step by step in the book Homemade Perfume by Anya McCoy."--Fragrantica"If I ever were to tackle a tincture, Homemade Perfume by pioneering natural perfumer Anya McCoy of Anya's Garden is where I'd start. In a nutshell, Homemade Perfume is a primer on how to extract scent from botanicals and turn it into personal and home fragrance. McCoy describes the basics of composing a fragrance -- for liquid perfume she recommends that a composition be about 20 percent top notes, 50 percent middle notes, and 30 percent base notes, for instance -- but also provides her own straightforward, tried-and-true recipes."
