Jan Moran Scent of Triumph : Perfume Book
Lovers of perfume themed books can anticipate another offering this year. Jan Moran is better known for her Fabulous Fragrances series, but in May the California based fragrance expert will publish her first novel titled Scent of Triumph. As Moran shares, "Scent of Triumph was inspired by my love of perfume and its creative process. It was based in part on research I did in creating Scentsa, the touch screen fragrance finder now in all Sephora stores, and in creating my own perfumes. But I also drew upon my own family history and my mother's memories of World War II. I imagined a young entrepreneur whose talent, determination, and fearlessness catapult her to the pinnacle of success, despite mounting personal tragedies and the elusiveness of love."
From the press release:
“Scent of Triumph is the story of Danielle Bretancourt, a talented young French perfumer with a flair for fashion and a natural olfactory gift. Her life takes a tragic turn when Nazis murder her husband and their only son is stranded behind enemy lines. She spies for the French resistance, determined to find him, but is forced to flee Europe with fragments of her family.
Destitute, she mines her talents to create a magnificent perfume that captures the hearts of Hollywood's top stars, then gambles again to win wealth and success as a couturier. Set between privileged lifestyles and gritty realities, here is one woman's story of courage, spirit, and resilience.”
The book can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com.
