    As we say in the Middle East, Mabrouk!! I can’t wait to read it!

  5. Tora

    I. Can’t. Wait.

  6. Ariane

    Who is the publisher? Can we pre-order on Amazon? Will there be a book tour? Details, please!

  7. MrsDalloway

    Excellent, can’t wait! Especially nice to have something to look forward to in late March.

  8. Nelleke Oepkes aka Booknose

    Congratulations on your creation!!
    I can’t wait to devour it from cover to covet.
    There was a very famous french-american 19th century salon celebrity, Nathalie Clifford-Barny who said, I quote: “ I believe in production, not in reproduction”. Famous last words!
    Anyhow, I’m so happy to read you for real in the paper flesh.

    OMG! Congratulations Neil! I can’t wait to order this when it comes out. I have no signature scent as I have 300+ bottles of perfume and may never have one (although I do maintain a “top 25” list that rarely changes). I will order this book just to savor your writing and your views on perfume. I’m so happy for you!

    • Thanks Renee. I have always loved our exchanges. I do think this is probably best as a book for someone who knows nothing on the subject – a friend or relative you want to introduce the topic to, but it is still nice to just have in your hand and have a browse. As the title says, it is just ‘in search of’ – I am trying to ignite passion on the subject rather than create the guide to end all guides (which is impossible). I am sure you know way more perfumes than I do. I just want to revel in the SENSUOUSNESS of it all with the reader.

  12. Bravo!! (We saw it in Vegas at the show but couldn’t buy one yet!)

    Congratulations Neil! I can’t wait to read it and hope it’s readily available in the U.S.

  15. Maggie Mahboubian

    Congratulation Neil! Can’t wait to read 🙂

  16. Well done! It must be such a thrill to receive it. Will look out for it.

  17. Ariane

    Thank you. I’ve just pre-ordered my copy on Amazon US. We get it a tad later — April 2.

  18. This is very, very exciting and I am SO relieved that you are happy with it. Was talking to a couple of my friends about it just the other day. X

  19. I have pre-ordered already.

  20. OnWingsofSaffron

    Great! Hope it also has wild and naughty bits in it! Will buy it the minute it is sold. I so very hope it‘ll be a great success: keeping my „thumbs pressed“ here in Germany.

    Wonderful! Really look forward to reading it in March and I hope it’s all been worth the slog for you! I’m sure it will be for us, and that it will be a characteristically fascinating read. Many congrats!!

  22. Matty

    Well done, Neil. I really hope it sells well for you.

  23. Laurie Harbor

    Congratulations!! I’m a long time very loyal reader, but not, I’m afraid, a commenter. Your writing slays me – genius! I’ve especially enjoyed the tales of your travels recently. I just pre-ordered your book from Amazon. Can’t wait! I’m an obsessive perfumista with a ludicrous number of perfumes collected over several decades, so I don’t expect to find a signature scent, but I know without doubt I’ll relish every word you’ve written. Thank you!

    • And thank YOU for saying this. In truth, I would have liked it to have been three or four times longer. But there are natural and commercial parameters – and hopefully it is still something of a mini treasure trove for the person who is interested.

  24. David

    I can’t wait for this book. I hope it’s in brick and mortar bookstores when I visit the USA at the end of April.

  25. Ann

    Definitely buying this. Congratulations!!

  26. georgemarrows

    Ordered! How could I not?

  27. Just pre-ordered my copy from Amazon!
