This historical novel is set during the troubled years of WW2, and tells the story of Danielle Bretancourt who is a talented perfumer, and even as she uses this amazing olfactory skill to survive in the glitzy world of Hollywood, she never forgets those who were lost to her during the troubled events of the war in Europe.
Nicely written, this story holds your imagination from the beginning and captures both the horror of war time loss, and the glitzy glamour of 1940’s Hollywood. The subject of fashion, perfume and passion is skilfully woven into a story which shows that the natural urge to survive is strong and even as Danielle’s bravery, spirit and resilience are put to the test, the courage of this feisty heroine, and her irresistible endurance is always strong.
