In 2009 when international bestselling author M.J. Rose approached me through the Sorcery of Scent blog, I could never have conceived the rewarding association that was to unfold. Whilst assisting her as a contributor for her gripping new novel The Book of Lost Fragrances, I discovered that M.J, much like myself, has an intense love of perfume... one that transcends the physical world of exquisite flacons and enchanting topnotes, and instead, celebrates the ethereal and the implied.

Perfume, as we understand it, is the one thing that possesses the incredible ability to bridge the gap across time. Ex-lovers can be remembered, special events recalled and locations recollected, all in an instant, and all at the command of one single drop.

But what if it could take you back even further? Back to a time beyond your earliest recollection? A time when your memories are both foreign and familiar in equal measures? Today, M.J. Rose launches "The Book of Lost Fragrances" - a suspenseful novel which explores reincarnation, twin souls and enduring love across the ages. It is a compelling page-turner that will have your heart hammering as it darts across continents and epochs, exploring characters who are connected in more worlds than one. This novel will be adored by readers of M.J. Rose's Reincarnationist series, and appeal to book and perfume-lovers the world over.

M.J., I wish you every success!
