"Perfumes and their Reputation"

Tricia, is this one of those tomes that, as with different flower types, each perfume is sending a different message, and there's one for every occasion?

I once saw an old book about the "flower messages" which ran to several hundred pages. Hey, if someone needed a flower that said "My grandfather's horse has lumbago", I reckon it would probably have been in that book.

I was thinking it was more the history of perfumes in general - how they were prized in Egypt, vilified in Puritan America, etc. :)
