I loved this book so much! I read a couple reviews that called it a modern California fairy tale and it really feels like that; it sort of reminds me of Practical Magic and Chocolat in the charming, witchy love aspects, meets Clueless for the mix ups. The aromateurs had such an interesting history and I love that this book had a fresh concept. It felt really unique! The characters were rich and complex, and I especially loved Mim. She was so relatable in her wish to be a normal teenager while still having this amazing gift. And the writing! The descriptions were lush and inviting, so easy to imagine the scents and smells. I've always had a thing about smells btw, and how they relate to memories. It never felt overdone to me; it was whimsical but not cloying. And the book was romantic! So romantic, though I loved that it focused on familial love and friendship too. Highly recommended :)

This book is really unique - the whole idea of being able to smell emotions is totally different from anything I've seen before and I enjoyed reading it. There were so many flowers and plants mentioned that I didn't even know half of them. I liked the overall story, but there were a few things I didn't like. I liked her other two books better, but I recommend this for teens who want to read something unusual with a cute love story.
