German Pomander in the form of a BookJuly 7, 2020
The world was a smelly place before modern plumbing. One defence against the olfactory assault was perfume and pleasant aromas that one might daub on one's body or carry. This pomander is exceptional in taking the form of a book. An inescapable connotation is that its contents are not only beneficial, but represent an informed approach to bodily care, based on scholarship and learning.
