I also recommend "The Flavor Thesaurus" by by Niki Segnit - lots of obvious and also non-obvious suggestions of flavour combinations. One of my favourites is cardamom and saffron, which does indeed feature in there. Sounds odd, tastes great.

Thanks, LindsChristine! Who knew Ras el-Hanout used to sometimes contain Spanish Fly? ;)

I second the Flavor Bible, but I also like this roundup of traditional spice mixes from the Kitchn:
