Snarky Perfume Reviews How I Love Thee

the perfume guide book
Love him or hate him, Luca Turin is gifted with a biting wit in his writing that makes me cringe and laugh out loud at the same time. I cringe because I'd hate to be the one on the receiving end of one of his critiques. I laugh because it's just great verbage.

Luca Turin Review

He delves into women's and men's fragrances; critiquing them alongside one another.
