No journalist has ever been allowed into the ultrasecretive, highly pressured process of originating a perfume.

Now, writing with wit and elegance, he juxtaposes the stories of the perfumes--one created by a Frenchman in Paris for an exclusive luxury-goods house, the other made in New York by actress Sarah Jessica Parker and Coty, Inc., a giant international corporation.--From publisher description
