'I am at one with Nature's perfection - her beauty, her colours, her fragrances - and she has allowed me to glimpse it in a man.' On the eve of the First World War, Fleurette, the only daughter of the wealthy Delacroix perfume dynasty, is being forced to marry a man she loathes, Aimery De Lasset, head of the pre-eminent perfume manufacturer in France. It is only the cathedral bells tolling the rally to the frontlines that save her from sharing his bed. When she receives an unexpected letter from Aimery's estranged brother, Fleurette is left holding a terrible secret, and the sparks of a powerful passion. Her discoveries risk shattering the two families and their perfume empires, bringing tragedy down on them all. The Perfumer's Secret is an intoxicating feast for the senses, a highly sensual and sensational story of deception, duty and desire.
