Coming to My Senses: A Story of Perfume, Pleasure, and an Unlikely Bride

Coming to My Senses: A Story of Perfume, Pleasure, and an Unlikely Bride - Alyssa  Harad I loved the smells conjured by this book. I really enjoyed Harad's evocative prose, and I think this memoir shone for all the perfumery parts. I didn't love the wedding parts quite so much, but even that was fun to read. I found the part about her mother's perfume, near the end of the book, to be almost unbearably poignant and so moving. I wished she would have called out more of the perfumes she described by name. Recommended, if you love perfume.
