Best perfumes, as seen by world-famous perfume reviewer, a scientist who came up with the theory of smelling based on vibrations, top perfume expert – Luca Turin. He is the author, with his wife Tania Sanchez, of several books dedicated to perfumes such as Perfumes, The A-Z guideThe Secret of Scent and The Little Book of Perfumes. He was also the subject of several books, most distinguished was by New York Times perfume reviewer Chandler Burr named The Emperor of Scent. Marked in blue are the links to my reviews of the said perfumes.

Every perfume is rated from one to five stars, one meaning that perfume is a total failure and should be avoided…and five stars meaning it’s a masterpiece. In this article I present you all perfumes that got five stars, and are considered best perfumes that were launched after their last book. As you can see, niche perfumes are taking over designers. If you want to read their amazing new book Perfumes The Guide 2018 (and I highly recommend it!), with even more witty and entertaining reviews, as well as intelligent essays, you can check Amazon, there are both Kindle and Paperback versions of it.
