It is rare to find information about Asian perfumery arts, such as ethnographic examples and historical developments.
Thus, the following links only seldom offer direct information about Asian traditions, but may serve as starting points towards identifying scholarly gaps.

To give an alternative, the following publications serve as starting points to sketch the Asian landscape of perfumery traditions.
