If you're interesed by perfume in the 18th century and most particularly by perfums of Marie-Antoinette, there is the book "Jean-Louis Fargeon, le parfumeur de Marie-Antoinette" writen by Elisabeth de Feydeau :D ...it is about the Marie-Antoinette's perfumer but I don't know if it was translated into english... :?

Just finished reading it 2 weeks ago and was enthralled by the writers tecnique of capturing scents made for the Queen.

A real must for Antoinette/perfume lovers!
