About

A picturesque village in the Provence, not far from Grasse, the world capital of perfume. But Julia isn’t here to enjoy the beauty of the landscape: her life is falling apart, and she has come here in search of the truth …

After her mother dies in a tragic accident, Julia discovers a secret locker that holds a parcel with her mother’s favourite perfume and a love letter next to it. The sender: a perfumer in the Provence. What does this mean? Was her mother leading a double life? On the spur of the moment, Julia sets out on a journey to the South of France. At the sender’s address she meets the son of the by now also deceased perfumer. In Nicolas she finds a sympathetic friend who gives her confidence – and love. But then they discover an incredible family secret …
