Blog Tour Guest Post: The Book of Lost Fragrances

Please join me in welcoming author M.J. Rose
to Let Them Read Books!

I've been fascinated with lost fragrances since long before I started writing The Book of Lost Fragrances... since I found a bottle of perfume on my great grandmother's dresser that had belonged to her mother in Russia. Here is one of those lost fragrances that stirs the senses and the imagination... (reasearched and described with the help of the perfume writer Dimitrios Dimitriadis)


The fashion house of Jeanne Paquin flourished on Paris' fashionable Rue de la Paix, but unfortunately closed in 1956. Prior to its closure, Paquin was responsible for creating a handful of perfumes, one of the most notable being Goya, presented in a weighty, ribbed Baccarat flacon. A lavish floral with soft aldehydes and ambery notes, Goya would have been quite the head-turner in its day. An enduring trail of light woods and mosses slowly fade on the skin, and - much like the perfume itself - simply become but a distant memory.


M.J. Rose is asking . . . have you ever smelled a story?

“He struggled to separate out the notes he recognized from the ones he didn’t, searching for the ingredients that gave the blend its promise of hope, of long nights and voluptuous dreams, of invitation and embrace. Of an everlasting covenant ripe with possibility. Of lost souls reunited.” —The Book of Lost Fragrances
