A huge Italian best seller, The Secret Ways of Perfume is an evocative, poignant listen set between the cobbled streets of Florence and the lavender fields of Provence - perfect for fans of The Secret Language of Flowers, Victoria Hislop, and Santa Montefiore. From Florence to Paris, a scent like no other can take you unexpected places…. Elena has a gift unlike any other: the ability to decipher the ingredients of a perfume from its scent alone. Perfume is a part of who she is and where she comes from. Only wrapped in essences of flowers, herbs, and spices does she feel truly at home. But when Elena's gift leads her to Paris to learn about the ancient arts of the craft, she also discovers a secret recipe designed by her great-grandmother that no other perfumer has been able to replicate. As Elena immerses herself in the task, traveling from Paris to Florence, she encounters Cail, a kind, shy man who has his own gift for cultivating unique roses. Together they will follow a path of secret scents, distant memories, and the hope of finding a love neither will ever forget.
