Michael Edwards will release the latest version of his “fragrance bible”, Fragrances of the World 2012, in January. The reference book lists over 8000 fragrances grouped by fragrance family, and is used by numerous retailers to help customers find fragrances they might like based on the scent(s) they already know and enjoy.
According to Edwards, 2011 saw a "record high of 1200 new launches", including 73 celebrity fragrances and 219 niche fragrances.
This year's edition features photography from International Fragrances and Flavors (IFF). It can be ordered through Fragrances of the World, and there's a 10% discount if you order before the end of January.
