Beautifully described, finely detailed, a mesmerizing story of family passions and sexrets. Jac L'Etoile has been, since childhood, not quite
sure of her mental underpinnings. A mercilessly contentious family life in the
old family mansion in Paris, her mother's suicide in the family's perfume
workshop, her father's ugly humor, all caused young Jac to wind up
institutionalized. While her brother Robbie goes on to manage the family
perfume business, Jac finds refuge in mythology and becomes a world authority. Click below for more...
Her profession doesn't prepare her for past-life regressions via perfume,
Cleopatra's perfume containers, machinations involving the Dalai Lama and the
Chinese government, and other people dedicated to securing ownership of the
Egyptian Queen's perfume jar. Set largely in Paris, this could be partly a tour
guide, so complete is some of the description. A 4.
