This edition is the first in a new series of Michael Edwards Fragrances of the World reference books.

Going forward, each reference book will list the fragrances launched during the two previous years in their respective fragrance families; with this edition featuring almost 5000 launches from 2020 & 2021.

A collectible and very useful reference library that will grow with each new edition.

His annual reference, Fragrances of the World, started in 1983 as a simple guide for retailers, listing just 323 fragrances. Today, it has become the industry’s most comprehensive classification of fragrances, universally regarded as the fragrance ‘bible’. It makes finding a new fragrance an exciting journey rather than a difficult chore.

Edwards’ Fragrance Wheel, the nose ‘map’ he developed to explain the relationship between the 14 different fragrance families, has become a universal icon of perfume classification: Google ‘fragrance+wheel’ to check how many millions of links result.
