About the Author

Lizzie Ostrom is one of our most exciting commentators on all things perfume. A lifelong fragrance fan, she began hosting events for people to discover the world of scent in 2010, under her alter ego of Odette Toilette. From evenings on the aroma of outer space, to scent tours of art galleries and trips to the past through perfume, Lizzie brings intelligence and wit to this most ravishing of subjects. She has worked with many fashion brands, as well as cultural and scientific institutions including the Tate, Royal Academy, Royal Institution, Royal Observatory Greenwich and The British Museum. She is also the co-host of the popular podcast Life in Scents. Lizzie lives in London and her favourite perfume changes far too often. Find out more on her website- http-//www.odettetoilette.com/

"Lizzie Ostrom's entertaining romp through a century of perfumes, ten per decade from 1900 to 1999... This book is as delectable an artefact as the product it describes... the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of J'Adore in your stocking." -- Suzi Feay * Independent *
"A really enjoyable, fun book... a great stocking filler." -- BBC Radio 2 Fact Not Fiction Book Club * The Arts Show with Claudia Winkleman *
"Beautifully written and illustrated with a sumptuous cover, this would make a perfect gift." -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * Stylist *
