The reference book is used by numerous retailers to help customers find fragrances they might like based on the scent(s) they already know and enjoy.
Also included in this year's edition: images of scent notes provided by Givaudan. The book is $195 USD, or $175 if you pre-order at Fragrances of the World by December 15th. (via fragrancesoftheworld, moodiereport)
