Jan Moranabout this book: From celebrities to artisan perfumers to luxury French fashion powerhouses--they're all on the search for the holy grail of perfume. It's a billion dollar business that starts with a Nose. And today, niche and vintage perfumes have never been hotter.
Scent of Triumph (Briarcliffe Press), follows the life of Danielle Bretancourt, a female French perfumer and fashion designer of the 1940s, and includes some of the best-loved vintage perfumes of all times. Scent of Triumph is based in Paris, London, Beveryl Hills, Hollywood, and Grasse. The story begins aboard a ship in the Atlantic Ocean at the dawn of World War II, and follows the talented, entrepreneurial protagonist and her family through the trials of war, loss, and eventual triumph.
"If the idea of a novel about a perfumer brings to mind images of sterile laboratories or serene fields of flowers, think again. "Scent of Triumph" offers action, suspense and romance aplenty as it follows its intrepid heroine through the turbulent years of World War II, from the depths of tragedy to the heights of success. Fragrance lovers will especially enjoy the skillful way in which scent is woven into the story, not only through references to classic perfumes but also in the way the heroine's experiences are filtered through her highly refined sense of smell." --Nancy Arnott, Copy Chief, Digital Media, A&E Television Networks
