About the Author:

Boix Camps is owner of Auram, a company he describes as undergoing deep research, specializing in high technology and top quality perfumery and flavors, fighting for the dignity of this profession and refusing to work in the so-called mass-market. Boix Camps advocates perfumery s innate connection with all other forms of art, saying, I live an intense life of philosophical reflection, serenity, culture, attempting to understand the secrets of wisdom and the simple things in life.


For many years, Arcadi Boix Camps' series of articles on the evolution of perfumery ingredients have proved a fascinating source of information for everyone in the fragrance industry. His odor descriptions and comments on how to use the ingredients, which other ingredients they blend with and so on, have provided invaluable help and inspiration for perfumers. The publication of a compilation of these articles in book form is very welcome, and there is little doubt that the volume will quickly become an essential part of the libraries of perfumers and fragrance chemists alike. --Charles Sell, MSc, PhD, CChem, FRSC, Givaudan

"In most cases, renowned perfumers do not reveal their profound knowledge on the art of perfumery. Here, however, an exception has been put forward by the author of many outstanding papers on perfumery materials, the perfumery palette what is often called the scent-organ and insights into perfume formulations. This book is a compilation of articles published in the respected Perfumer & Flavorist magazine from November 1978 through the present, thus providing an excellent overview on the evolution of the creative art of perfumery, as influenced by the change of vogue, materials, and acceptance by consumers." --Gerhard Buchbauer, Department of Clinical Pharmacy & Diagnostics Center of Pharmacy, University of Vienna
