THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Glamorous Books of Scent
'Tis the Season' According to analysts the fragrance industry is doing quite well in the form of sales this holiday season. By sales, I mean the niche market. According to a Reuters report in the December 14, 2014 edition of The Economic Times more and and more consumers are spending their money on quality fragrances composed by perfumers who bring the luxury world of perfumery a sense of value, pride and amazing talent.
The niche market of perfumery is creative and each and every perfume that I have experienced brings its own story to the scent of creation.
The fragrance industry to me is not just about the actual scent, bottle and packaging but the knowledge and innovation. Which brings me to the topic of books. Not just any books but- fragrance books.
I have learned and have admired so many of the bloggers and perfumers who have put their passion and experienceof fragrance onto paper in the form of a practical hands-on book, a memoir or a fictional novel.
This season, I have received emails from best-selling author and entrepreneur, Jan Moran who incredibly has written several books on fragrance and beauty that should not go unnoticed this holiday season.
My first encounter with Jan Moran was in the year 2000 with her first book Fabulous Fragrances II: A Guide to Prestige Perfumes for Women and Men published by Rizzoli USA.
I loved the thick hardcover book that features a blazing red cover with a gorgeous lady on the front of it wearing a beautiful red dress.
I wanted to know more about Jan Moran and how her passion for fragrances became a book for us to seek as a guide to the world's finest perfumes.
Since that time, Jan Moran has written several best-selling books that reached the charts of the New York Times.
Scent of Triumph (A novel of Perfume and Passion) will be released in March 2015 from St. Martin's Press. Scent of Triumph is a historical fiction novel based on the life of a French perfumer during the 1940's.
It gets better with the release of FLAWLESS (A Hostile Beauty Series Novel) Book 1 and the second book in the series with BEAUTY MARK (A Hostile Beauty Series Novel).
Jan uses her rare talent to bring exciting stories to the lives of perfumer lovers and beauty product junkies a glimpse into the world of glamour that seems and suspense that would rivel any popular television show seen on prime time.
What a tremendous gift for the Holiday season and throughout the year to give a collection of books written by award-winning author Jan Moran.
I am now a published author and now I am writing about perfume thanks to my admiration of Jan Moran and how we can continue the love of fragrance by reading a book in our spare time, while exercising on the treadmill, while having a vanilla latte at Starbucks and my favorite after the children have gone to bed for the evening.
All of the books can be purchased through www.amazon.com and Scent of Triumph (A novel of Perfume and Passion) can be pre-ordered.
Books are a treasure and why not sure the gift of mystery, passion, intrigue and fragrance with a passionate person of the fragrance industry.
