In 2008, Turin and Sanchez up-ended the world of fragrance with their critically acclaimed Perfumes: the A–Z Guide, one of Amazon’s best books of the year, described by John Lanchester in the New Yorker as “ravishingly entertaining,” by India Knight in the Sunday Times (UK) as “one of the best books I have ever read,” by Hilary Mantel as “opinionated, knowledgeable, sharply written and surprisingly comprehensive … a purely enjoyable book,” and by Philip Hensher as "a work of the highest criticism, one which elevates writing about perfume to the best sort of writing about wine or rock music." Ten years later they bring their inimitably passionate, erudite perspective back to the hugely changed world of fragrance, to sort out which of over 1,200 new individual perfumes deserves celebration (and which condemnation).

The 2018 guide includes all new content, including
- “Ten Years Later,” looking back on the last decade of fragrance
- “The Shifting Shape of Fragrance 1918–2018,” describing changes over a hundred years of - fragrance history
- all new Frequently Asked Questions
- over 1,200 individual perfume reviews: masculine and feminine, mainstream and arcane, from the latest Guerlains to a five-star masterpiece by a small, little-known Malaysian firm
- an expanded glossary
- top ten lists, this time including not just top masculines and feminines but the best introverts and extroverts, the best retro, the best citrus, the best oud, and more
