ABOUT PERFUMES
Emmanuelle Devos (‘Read My Lips’) and Gregory Montel (‘Call My Agent) shine in this fragrant French drama.

Anne Walberg (Devos) was once the star of her industry – a perfumer whose ability to produce enticing new fragrances was second to none and which saw her rise through a competitive landscape. She remains in demand, but her intemperate behaviour has made her difficult. However, striking up an unlikely friendship with her equally troubled new driver, Anne sees a way to return to the top, which might offer a solution to both their problems.

Grégory Magne’s intelligent drama is a visual and sophisticated treat. A breath of fresh – albeit scented – air.
