In each review, either Turin or Sanchez offers a vivid description of the scent along with a 1 to 5 star rating (1 being awful and 5 being a masterpiece).

In addition to the reviews, Turin and Sanchez provide around 50 pages of introductory essays on subjects such as the history of perfume, how to choose a feminine fragrance, frequently asked questions about perfume, and how the industry has changed—for better and worse—over the years. The back content includes a brief glossary of materials and terms used throughout the reviews and top 10 lists in nine different fragrance categories (see Top 10 Lists). Not only is Perfumes an essential guide to shopping for fragrance, but it is also a unique reading experience. Perfumer & Flavorist magazine recently spoke with Turin and Sanchez to discuss their relationship with fragrance, the effect fragrance writing has had on the industry, and the state of the fragrance industry.
